The 2007 Browncoat Cruise was a unique vacation/convention designed to allow fans of the Firefly/Serenity ‘verse to enjoy each other’s company in a cruise ship environment. Traveling from San Diego, California to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and back, the participants enjoyed an endless array of Browncoat activities, as well as the chance to get up-close-and-personal with a bevy of celebrity guests.

Now Kids Need to Read Charity Auctions offers you two mementos from this landmark event. First, an official Browncoat Cruise Souvenir Program signed by Brian Wiser, producer of Done the Impossible and one of the cruise directors. Brian also designed, printed and made all the programs himself! This 30+ page, full color booklet includes bios of the guests, ads from your favorite Firefly/Serenity sources, and cover art by artist Adam Levermore-Rich (Lexigeek). Second, a limited edition (only 500 were made for the attendees) Browncoat Cruise Travel Poster measuring 17 x 22 inches. The poster bears the signatures of Ron Glass (Shepherd Book), Michael Fairman (Niska), Jonathan Woodward (Tracy), Nectar Rose (Lovebot), “Firefly Theme” vocalist Sonny Rhodes, The Bedlam Bards (Cedric & Hawke) and poster artist Adam Levermore-Rich. Adam designed the poster to complement the five Blue Sun Travel Posters he created and released through QMx — he affectionately refers to it as the “unofficial 6th travel poster”.

    Of the many seagoing idylls possible in the Caribbean, these voyages through the Leeward Islands are some of the best. They begin in St. Thomas, right in the heart of the Caribbean, and sail to less- visited playgrounds further south….
