Cruise the Caribbean with Alicia Minshew!
Alicia Minshew is going to be a busy, busy girl over the next few weeks. In addition to her front-burner storyline, she’s getting ready for an exciting 4-day fan event – on a cruise ship! The best part is that you can tag along and spend time with Alicia and several other soap stars!
I spoke with Alicia over the phone a couple of days ago and she is really excited about the trip.
Kristi: “What can fans expect on the cruise?”
Alicia Minshew: “Lots and lots of time with the actors. As soon as they board, we are going to have a group photo with us. Then there will be games, talk shows and things. . .a lot of question and answer sessions, and just lots of time. (Fans) will also have some down time where they can just enjoy the islands and their own time. It’s really hands on.”
Kristi: “What are you most looking forward to?”
Alicia: “I think it’s going to be fun to spend time with the actors from the other shows. We’re all members of a small group and I know who everyone is so it’s going to be fun to get to know them. It’ll be work/play for me.
By the way, Alicia is a fan of several of the other actors who will be on board, but is looking forward most to meeting a few Days of Our Lives alums.
Alicia: "I've met a couple of the others but really, I'm looking forward to (spending time with) Julie Pinson because she's good friend with another good friend of mine (Rebecca Budig, ex-Greenlee). . .and I hear she's fun! The men are all gorgeous, that's a given! Austin (Peck, Brad, ATWT and ex-Austin, Days), I remember watching him years ago on Days. . .it's fun to watch someone and then get to meet them.
I asked Alicia about other long fan events and she said this one, like Super Soap Weekend in Florida, is a chance for the fans to really get to know their favorite actors.
Alicia: "The only other long one I've done is Super Soap Weekend at Disneyland. This will be the longest one. You get to spend more time with fans and can take more time with them. It won't be so rushed and I can really give them their money's worth. I forget that we really make a difference in people's lives and it is great to give back to them. The best part is realizing that we entertain and we make a difference in their lives and it gets them through tough times. . .at the end of the day, I'm glad that I’m here to entertain people.
Alicia and fellow All My Children star Cameron Mathison will be on board along with Bold and Beautiful stars Winsor Harmon, Thorne, and Ron Moss, Ridge, and Days of Our Lives stars Brandon Beemer, Shawn, and Julie Pinson, Billie. General Hospital hunk Tyler Christopher, Nikolas and The Young and The Restless stars Don Diamont, Brad and Christian LeBlanc, Michael, will also be on board to visit with you.
By the way, your Soaps.com family will be on-board to bring you all the cool information as the cruise happens. We'll even have a camera crew in tow, so if you can't get on the boat, you'll still be able to see the events and your favorite stars!
