Bah. I guess it's only a surprise to me and Linda Wolf, owner of the travel agency that is organizing this August's Twilight Cruise (a.k.a. my husband's nightmare vacation):
“In the 20 years I’ve been in the business, I’ve never seen anything like this,” said the self-professed Twilight fan of the buzz generated by her Twilight Fans Cruise. Scheduled to arrive and depart from Seattle, the cruise will offer a costume ball, a Q&A session with “Twilight” actors, movie viewings and more. Film stars Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene are slated to be aboard, and, according to the Twilight Fans Cruise MySpace page, other special guests may also be invited.Read the rest at LA Times Blog.
The response from the Twi-kind? “Overwhelming,” said Bobbi Weinstein, Wolf’s sister, who works in their small, family-run office. Calls and e-mails about the cruise have been streaming in, and “we are working 12-hour shifts,” said Weinstein.
