You know the day is coming to a close when you start debating your coworkers if growing a bear and shaping it like a spider is a bad idea.
Are you a squealing teenage girl? Have access to your parents credit cards? Then have I got the deal for you!
Nothing says “Lets celebrate our love of vampires” more than taking a cruise ship from Seattle, WA to ports in Alaska for a week. For a the low, low price of $1200, you too can hang out a cruise ship filled with squealing girls while you discuss the books and movies, browse the dealer’s room, visit with Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen) and Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) from the movie, watch the movies with a large group…
Okay, yeah, I can’t even fake sounding positive about Twilight Cruise 2010 any more. I understand that people have all sorts of different fandoms and so on, but the idea of a cruise ship filled with primarily squealing teenage girls for a week would make my head explode. (Which, by the way, has anyone checked to see if there is a giant bulls eye on top of the ship yet? Sounds like a perverts dream come true)
Now, if a week on the cruise ship isn’t enough, you can also book an extra pre-cruise event where you go to Forks, WA and explore locations described in the books. That’s a seperate fee… and then there is $150 on top of the cruise price for admittance into the events on the cruise ship (which implies non-Twilight people will be on the ship… oh how I pity those people)… okay, anyone remember we’re in a recession? Anyone think Twilight is going to be anywhere nearly as popular in a year as it is now?
-waits for people to stop throwing things at him-
Look, I’ve been around enough fandoms over the years now to know how fast they fizzle out. And don’t think it’s just me thinking this… haven’t you wondered why the movies are coming out so fast? Lets take a look at the release schedule of the first three movies, shall we?
Twilight – 11/20/08
The Twilight Saga: New Moon – 11/21/09
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – 6/30/10
Three movies in a span of 19-months? Anyone else ever seen movie adaptations come out that fast? Yeah, didn’t think so. See, this is called “cashing in before fickle teenagers move on to the next ‘hot’ thing.” It would be nice if people thought about this before they book this cruise, but whatever, it should be a fun filled week filled with a lot of swooning, fake vampire teeth and smudges of eye-liner all over the ship from all the fans wearing too much of it.
In the mean time, check out this video of an actor from the movies taking on the fans you may find on this cruise.
