If November means cold winds and maybe a little snow on the ground, you may want to check out the hot activities on the first annual Soap Cruise! On November 15th, several of your favorite soap stars – and maybe even you! – will be cruising the Caribbean on a cool 4-day public appearance!

I had the chance to catch up with Austin Peck, Brad, who is looking forward to his first-ever cruise ship and all the fun that goes along with fan events. Austin told me he has never been on a cruise before, so he’s a bit nervous but also very excited about the events aboard ship!

Kristi: “What can fans expect on the cruise?”

Austin Peck: “Every day we’ll play scenes with the fans, play some games and be able to interact with them. And there is an infinite amount of food.” (editor’s note: Austin seemed every interested in the food!) “We’ll stop at Key West and Cancun. . .Really, just come on this cruise. It’s going to be fun!”

Kristi: “You’re the lone ATWT star on board – how did that happen?”

Austin: (laughing) “I had to twist a couple arms and break a couple of legs to even get them to let me go! (chuckling) Really, I just kind of begged them, ‘Pleeeze, pleeze let me go’ and they finally agreed that I could do it.”

Kristi: “What is the best part of fan appearances?”
