OUR LATEST SPECIAL WORKSHOP ACTIVITY: As an exciting follow-up to our previous Writers' Workshops and Fan Audio & Video Workshops, we hope by popular demand to continue the tradition by presenting our ninth Creative Workshop At Sea as we use the wealth of time that our voyage together allows us, to turn our story ideas into complete short adventures. You’ll be able to learn from seasoned professionals who can share their insights & experiences with you as you learn the ins & outs of crafting an original story. With their kind permission, we even plan to allow for special performances by our celebrity guest actors. You and your fellow fans will develop and script a short story, rehearse lines (or read from scripts or cue cards!), help with tech services, and see it all come together as a group project. On the final night of the cruise we hold our "wrap party", and copies of our finished cruise DVD that include the workshop production as well as trip highlights and more, are sent out to cruise members later, as soon as it is ready. As if our cruises aren't enough fun already, this added dimension makes them even more unique!
SPECIAL OFFER - Click here for info on how to get your own FREE copy of one of our exclusive DVDs, like the December 2003 cruise's all original video workshop production, "Doctor Who: Death Takes A Holiday", starring Nick Courtney & Wendy Padbury as "The Brigadier" & "Zoe", and also featuring special guest appearances by Colin Baker & Frazer Hines as "The Doctor" & "Jamie", plus loads of behind-the-scenes & interview features, all on a 95 minute DVD! Or, you might prefer 2004's production, "Doctor Who: The Crystal Conundrum featuring Sylvester McCoy as The 7th Doctor, Lisa Bowerman as Bernice Summerfield, Frazer Hines as Jamie, and a hilarious blooper & gag reel, or "The Doctor's Day Out", a documentary on our Mexican cruise with Peter Davison, Mary Tamm, Deb Watling, and friends, or perhaps our 2005 production, "Doctor Who: A Happy Ending" featuring Carole Ann Ford as Susan and special guest star Verity Lambert, or our 2006 production, "Doctor Who: The Pair O' Docs Paradox" featuring Nick Courtney as The Brigadier & Stewart Bevan as Professor Jones, with special guest appearances by two different Doctors. The 2007 cruise group was SO small & intimate that we decided not to even do a story video, but to just party on instead, and the comical riffing off of one another by our delightfully insane writer guests Rob Shearman & Nev Fountain produced some of the funniest disc extras ever. And in 2008 we reunited Sylvester McCoy & Sophie Aldred as the 7th Doctor & Ace, for the occasion of Benton's wedding, but who is that mysterious uninvited guest and what is he plotting, in "Doctor Who: Twice Upon A Timelord"? Or perhaps our newest production, and our first audio adventure, "Doctor Who: Time And Tortola", featuring Laura Doddington as Zara, John Leeson as K-9, and the amazing Frazer Hines as both his original role of Jamie MacCrimmon and a spot-on recreation of his old friend & mentor Pat Troughton's Second Doctor!


Doctor Who has always been a main focus of our cruises, and in 2011 we continue to celebrate the Doctor Who universe, and others as well. This time we're sailing to somewhere we've NEVER visited before, and that a lot of you have been asking us to go to for a LONG time - an island adventure from the Orlando/Port Canaveral area! And with a full FIVE nights together, there's lots of time for all sorts of great fun. AND a full weekend of land based fun beforehand if you choose, with our friends at the Hurricane Who Convention, with whom we will be sharing some of our celebrity guests. As always, there will be loads of great things to do and see this year, both off the ship and on it, including a special Sunday night Bon Voyage Party in Orlando after the closing ceremonies of the Hurricane Who Convention, the night before we set sail on the ship, which will be included FREE for all attending members aboard the cruise, and also offered separately to local area fans who are unable to sail aboard the ship with us (separate Bon Voyage Party only membership rates to be announced closer to the event...)

Join us for a FULL FIVE NIGHTS aboard ship - from 7 - 12 November of 2011 (plus the BONUS Bon Voyage Party the NIGHT BEFORE sailing on Sunday 6 November!) The next day it's off to the cruise ship terminal at Port Canaveral, near the world famous Kennedy Space Center, to board our ship, the large & luxurious Carnival Ecstasy. You'll want to pack your swimsuits, because even in November, the weather's usually great in Florida & the Bahamas. As always, you'll be able to share it all with a great bunch of sci-fi celebrities & fans enjoying the trip together.

Join us aboard Carnival Cruise Line's fantastic luxury liner, the Carnival Ecstasy. With the unique combination of celebrity guests and fun activities that we've got in store for you, our "Hurricane Who Bahamas Evacuation" cruise will surely be one of our best, and your most memorable, events ever. This, our 17th celebrity/fan vacation cruise, and the ninth to include our exclusive Onboard Creative Workshops, features great celebrity guests you know and love from Doctor Who and other great shows. Our Cruise events are based upon a limited size attendance which allows everyone to enjoy a close and personal experience with our celebrity traveling companions, something that's all but impossible to do among the ever-present crowds at your average land-based science fiction convention.


Our cruises originated over 22 years ago as an exclusively Doctor Who event, and the good Doctor & his unique universe still remains our main focus. The addition this year of our ninth special Doctor Who Creative Workshop At Sea promises to be an experience like none other, as our guests of honor share with you the ins & outs of what it takes to actually create & produce a complete short sci-fi/fantasy adventure, featuring creative insights from, and cameo performances by, our guest actors, as you enjoy the unique opportunity to co-star along side them!
