Holland America had a Vampire Cruise to Alaska this past summer! They docked in Skagway in late June. There was a Vampire Ball, a Vampire Film Fest, as well as a “Vamp’s Got Talent” contest, which I hear made the 2012 All-Cruise Highlight Reel. Dacre Stoker, the great-grandnephew of Bram Stoker was aboard to give the whole event an air of legitimacy.
Sadly, Holland America officials admitted sheepishly & off camera, that many of the passengers refused to come out of their coffins upon landing in Alaska due to the extended daylight hours in late June. “It seemed like such a great idea in Seattle last January.” said Holland America Promotion Specialist Marv Haglebarger. “Of all the luck; we couldn’t even get a cloudy day for them to see the bears.”
