Guiding Light Bids Final Farewell on a Cruise

Fans of the legendary soap opera Guiding Light will get a chance to bid their final farewell to the canceled show this summer on the high seas.

A dozen of the actors for the daytime soap opera, which was canceled in September of last year, will be aboard the Carnival Glory to sign autographs, pose for photos, and to commiserate with die-hard fans, all while they make their way to Nova Scotia.

Stars present will include Kim Zimmer (Reva), Jordan Clarke (Billy), Verdorn (Ross) and Ron Raines (Alan), and Grant Aleksander (Phillip).

Other actors, like Michael O'Leary (Rick), and Liz Kiefer (Blake), will also be on board.

The five-night trip, dubbed the "So Long Springfield Tour," will depart New York City on July 31st making stops in Saint John, New Brunswick and Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Loyal fans that are quick to register will be invited to a VIP Breakfast, where they can dine with their favorite soap stars. A disco dance party, fan karaoke, trivia sessions, and a workshop with a daytime TV director are all part of the on board activities.

Guiding Light, which was originally created in 1937 as a radio show, was the longest running drama in the history of both television and radio.

Rates start at $949 per person, based on double occupancy.
