Ship Of Fear: A Horror Cruise, which was supposed to sail this year between October 28 and November 2, has been officially cancelled due to poor ticket sales.
The event was to feature Alice Cooper and Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider as musical guests, with appearances by directors and actors from genre-defining films, including "Child's Play", "Candyman", "The Fly", "Fright Night", "Gremlins", "The Howling", "Pet Sematary", as well as macabre illusionists, performance artists and rock stars for five full-moonlit nights.
A post on the event web site read as follows: "After careful consideration, we have decided not to continue with the 'Ship Of Fear' cruise and we will not be sailing in 2013. Those guests who already purchased cabins will be given a full refund. We feel that we had a strong combination of talent, programming and promotion; however, we did not receive the consumer demand required to continue."
Launched by ECP, the world's largest independent cruise production company, and StarVista, the Ship Of Fear (a full ship charter) was slated to depart on its maiden voyage from Miami, Florida on October 28. The Carnival Victory was to sail Halloween week with stops in Nassau, Half Moon Cay and Freeport before returning to Miami on November 2, 2013.
