Stars Shine with Celebrity Cruises: “Soap Cruise” to set Sail on Celebrity Century

Newspapers

Miami – (July 28, 2008 ) – Cruise enthusiasts who enjoy the intrigue, drama and romance of daytime TV’s most popular soap operas – and the actors who star in them – are likely to find the vacation of their dreams in “Soap Cruise,” which will be held on Celebrity Century in 2009.

Soap Cruise – the second voyage of its kind – will pair Celebrity’s Star TreatmentSM with exclusive activities allowing guests who have purchased the Soap Cruise package the opportunity to directly interact with 16 of the hottest actors on all eight of daytime TV’s top shows. The activities will include autograph and photo sessions, soap opera trivia games, an elite cocktail party with the stars, and other special events, including the opportunity to write a script and act it out with one of the stars.

Hosting Soap Cruise will be Cameron Mathison, who plays “Ryan” on All My Children, and has appeared on Dancing with the Stars. Mathison will be joined on Celebrity Century by fellow All My Children actors Alicia Minshew (“Kendall”) and Jacob Young (“J.R.”); Austin Peck (“Brad”) from As the World Turns; Brandon Beemer (“Owen”) of The Bold and the Beautiful and formerly “Shawn” on Days of Our Lives; Winsor Harmon (“Thorne”) and Lesli Kay (“Felicia”) of The Bold and the Beautiful; Nadia Bjorlin (“Chloe”) and Jay Johnson (“Philip”) of Days of Our Lives; Bradford Anderson (“Spinelli”) and Greg Vaughn (“Lucky”) from General Hospital; Murray Bartlett (“Cyrus”) and Ricky Paull Goldin (“Jake”) of All My Children, formerly (“Gus”) on Guiding Light; Kamar de los Reyes (“Antonio”) on One Life to Live; and Don Diamont (“Brad”) and Christian LeBlanc (“Michael”) of The Young and the Restless.

The soap stars will mix it up exclusively with guests who have booked the Soap Cruise package on Celebrity Century’s January 22 itinerary departing roundtrip from Miami, with visits to Key West, Fla., and Cozumel, Mexico. A limited number of staterooms have been reserved for guests interested in experiencing Soap Cruise.
