CBS’ long-running soap opera Guiding Light left the air last September after more than 50 years on television. Many viewers found it hard to say goodbye to the characters and the performers who played them. Now, if you have the money and time, you can say goodbye up close and personal.
A “So Long Springfield” cruise is taking place on Carnival’s Glory ship from July 31st until August 5th. The boat is set to sail out of New York City and visit St. John, New Brunswick, and Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Performers scheduled to take part include Kim Zimmer, Robert Newman, Justin Deas, Grant Aleksander, Beth Chamberlin, Ron Raines, Jordan Clarke, Tina Sloan, Roger Bogue, Liz Keifer, Michael O’Leary, Frank Dicopoulos, and Mandy Bruno.
The Guiding Light package includes meet and greets with the actors, question and answer sessions, Karaoke, scene acting, trivia games, contests, and other activities that are being kept under wraps. Some early registrants will be invited to take part in a VIP breakfast with the performers.
Prices for the cruise and GL package begin at $949 (based on double occupancy) and gratuities and taxes not included. There are cheaper rates available for those who want to cruise but don’t want to take part in the Guiding Light activities. Visit celebrityeventsgroup.com for more details.
