If you ever dreamed of being on a cruise with Hallmark heartthrobs Andrew Walker and Kristoffer Polaha, it is happening! Although tickets are sold out, you may be able to attend the virtual event, “Cruisin’ with Andrew Walker & Kristoffer Polaha.” Deck the Hallmark has set up a unique online experience that allows fans to participate in the Hallmark cruise from the comfort of their homes. Check out how to join Andrew and Kristoffer aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas.
How to join Mystery at Sea Virtually
The very first Hallmark cruise event, called Mystery at Sea, will be held January 8–12 and will see several location stops starting from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Among those stops are Perfect Day Coco Cay, and Nassau, both in the Bahamas. The festive itinerary includes the Light the Night sail-away ceremony and tree lighting, engaging activities, photo opportunities, behind-the-scenes panels with Hallmark Channel stars, Christmas cookie decorating, Christmas carol-oke, an ugly sweater contest, and Hallmark Channel wine tastings.
If you decide to take part in this event virtually, you’ll be able to witness a special array of perks. Every night, you’ll be sent an email containing exclusive images and videos featuring both Andrew and Kristoffer. Additionally, you’ll receive video and audio recordings from the daily panels.
Hosted by Bran from Deck the Hallmark, the virtual event costs $25, and you can purchase your virtual pass on the official website.
Andrew Walker told Southern Living, “I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing without the fans, without people that care about my movies and continue to support me. So this is a way for me to give back to them. What I loved about it was the fact that it was really intimate. We cap the numbers at around 250 people and it’s 250 fans that really want to spend a little more of that intimate one on one time. Up close and personal with us. And we get to learn more about them and vice versa.”
Check out the hilarious post made especially for the virtual event on Instagram.
Kristoffer said “I’m excited about it and I’m grateful for Andrew. He just plucked me out of a hat and said ‘do you want to do this with me?’ So I’m grateful to Andrew for this opportunity.” He continued, “It’s almost like the ultimate fan experience. Because if you go to those conventions you’re paying for minutes of time with those people and this feels like you’re paying for hours and hours of time for five days. It’s a pretty sweet deal.”
Another Cruise Coming in November 2024
In response to the remarkable demand, the network has introduced a second sailing for its inaugural holiday-themed cruise. The announcement for the additional voyage was made earlier this year, with the new cruise scheduled to occur from November 17 to 21, 2024. Unfortunately, tickets have also sold out quickly. But let’s keep our fingers crossed that another virtual event will come. If this one coming up is popular, there is a big chance that Deck the Hallmark will schedule another virtual event with similar content, so stay tuned!
