Wizard World Announces Convention Cruise for 2016!

Wizard World

What could possibly be better than a Wizard World comic convention? How about setting the comic convention on a cruise ship to the Bahamas in December? They even sweeten the deal by including all your meals and open bar with the price of admission. Are you hooked yet?

Wizard World announced today their plans for an inaugural comic convention cruise setting sail December 2-5, 2016. The convention producer has partnered with Rose Tours to make this happen on board the Norwegian Sky ship. It is a short cruise that will sail from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas. How is that for a holiday treat?

Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead has already been announced as a celebrity guest headliner, but other guests include Ernie Hudson, Barry Bostwick, Sara Underwood, and Billy Martin. Other celebrities will undoubtedly be added, and there will be cosplay and creative guests in attendance as well.

“We are excited to partner with Rose Tours for our first-ever Wizard World Cruise!,” said Randy Malinoff, Wizard World COO. “Rose Tours has the best reputation for providing the fans with a great experience on their celebrity cruises. And having Norman Reedus among our inaugural guests is the best treat we can give our loyal fans!”

Like any good cruise, price of admission includes all meals and open bar, but will also allow entry to all Wizard World events and photo ops, as well as some additional goodies. Packages start at $749. Be sure to visit http://www.wizardworldcruise.com/ to sign up for updates, learn more information, or register to attend. You can also learn more about the cruise ship, the Norwegian Sky which includes 4 restaurants and 10 bars/lounges–all of which, again, are included in your price. The ship also has a casino, spa, and more.

Programming for the convention has not yet been announced, but this sounds like an amazing concept. Other convention producers have tried this before, and it seems to be working, but imagine mixing your convention experience with a vacation and a totally immersive experience. Plus, there will be cosplay contests and gaming tournaments; basically a little bit of everything for everyone. This sounds like a dream come true.
