If the thought of closing yourself off from the world and hitting the high seas with your favorite soap actors sounds good to you, you can actually make it happen. It’s the “Sail Away with the Stars” Cruise and the registration deadline is September 28! You could be setting sail from Miami on Thursday, November 15 and not coming back until you’ve spent four days with Tyler Christopher from General Hospital . (Okay, there are several other soap stars as well, but this is the GH page after all!) There will be plenty of photo ops and meet & greet events, not to mention the lively ports of Key West and Cancun.

I had a nice phone call with Tyler today and want to share his thoughts on fan events and this cruise, in particular. He told me that the only other time that he’s cruised was for a fan event last year, but he was the only actor – this time around the cruise is on a much bigger scale (with nine other soap actors & actresses on board). He says that his personal preference when traveling would be to spend an entire week exploring an island, but is looking forward to time on the ship with soap fans. As an FYI, I told him if an excursion to Chichen Iza is offered while at port in Cancun that it’s definitely worth his time. He gladly took my advice and was interested to hear how cool I thought climbing the ruin is. (Hint, hint, if you go on the cruise, take the Chichen Iza excursion and you just might end up climbing an ancient ruin with a “prince”!)
