JUNEAU -- A weeklong vampire convention on a cruise ship is planned for Southeast Alaska next summer.

Holland America's cruise ship Zuiderdam will be the setting for the event scheduled for late June.

KINY says the ship will make stops in Juneau, Glacier Bay, Skagway and Ketchikan after it departs from Vancouver, B.C.

Scheduled to join the cruise is Dacre Stoker, a great-grandnephew of "Dracula" author Bram Stoker.

Dacre Stoker is a co-author of a sequel, "Dracula: The Un-Dead."

Vampire scholar John Edgar Browning is scheduled to host a vampire movie festival.

Other planned events include a vampire ball and costume contest.
