If you've been looking for a vacation getaway, love pop culture celebrities or comic creatives and fancy yourself something of a seafarer, Fan2Sea -- a new cruise line that specializes in bringing all the excitement of a comic con to the high seas -- might be your dream come true.
The cruise sets sail from the Port of Tampa and visits Key West, Florida and Cozumel, Mexico over the course of four days. Meals, access to themed parties and mixers, film screenings, cosplay contests and discussion panels are all included in the price of admission (which starts at $694 per person). Additional access like meet-and-greets, autographs and photo ops can be added at an extra cost.
The cruise has confirmed numerous nerd culture celebrities and creatives, including Michael Rooker of "Guardians of the Galaxy"; comics writers Brian Azzarello, Scott Snyder, Charles Soule and Mark Waid; comics artists Phil Noto, Mark Brooks, Clay Mann and Andy Kubert; and "Stranger Things" star Caleb McLaughlin. Among the geek-focused amenities are more standard cruise ship perks, like an onboard spa, fitness center and adults-only solarium.
Nightly panels will include insights from the cast members of "The Walking Dead" and "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" and Marvel Comics and DC Comics creators, and the daytime offers a chance to bump into your favorite celebrity while enjoying a game of shuffleboard on-deck.
