Winner in the first annual 'Soap Cruise' contest! image gift bag full of goodies! is happy to report our winner in the first annual 'Soap Cruise' contest! A thrilled Lori Kaplan and was notified late last week that she had won the cruise, and it appears as though she's turning this into a lovely romantic getaway weekend for she and her husband, Ysaac Kaplan!

Lori's grand prize winnings include the four-day Western Caribbean cruise for she and hubby, she wins a gift bag filled with goodies and the opportunity to interview her choice of one of the soap stars attending the Soap Cruise! Guess who she chose? Well considering that her favorite soaps are all ABC soaps, and she watches - or reads our recaps for All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital, it's no surprise that she chose to interview General Hospital Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine)!'s Julie Clark Robinson and Christine Fix will also follow Lori and Ysaac during some of the events they'll attend such as the Gala Dinner, a Soap Trivia Game, Celebrity Bingo and more!

The foursome will depart from Miami at 4 PM, Thursday, November 15; we'll cruise first to and enjoy a luxurious day in gorgeous Key West Friday, then head on to the idyllic tropical paradise of Cancun/Calica Saturday and spend Sunday at sea with 10 daytime stars, with a return to land, and reality, Monday November 19!
