Prepare for a blood-sucking party at sea next summer.
Holland America, one of the major cruise operators in Alaska, has announced a vampire-themed cruise up the state's Inside Passage, according to Vamps at Sea, a website touting the event.
Promotions for the party tout vampire scholars, a vampire movie festival and even a descendant of Bram Stoker, Darce Stoker, who's also gotten into the undead business of late, co-authoring a sequel to his great-granduncle's classic, "Dracula."
Vamps at Sea will set sail from Vancouver, B.C. on June 23, 2012 and cruise the Inside Passage for a week, with ports of call in Ketchikan, Skagway, Glacier Bay and Juneau.
