1. Walker Stalker Cruise

Ever wondered what a zombie-themed cruise would look like? Look no further than the Walker Stalker Cruise, which sets sail in mid-January from the port of Miami. It’s the perfect vacation getaway for fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Stars of the show (or at least nine of them) will be on hand to answer questions and provide entertainment, but the other major draw is the makeup artists that are on board, whose sole job it is to turn the cruise line passengers into gruesome zombies themselves.
