About Us

Xtine Santackas:  Meet Xtine, our new Cruise Coordinator and leader of our merry band of dark avengers. she has been a part of the Goth scene in Boston for a very long time! You’ll find her hosting “HEROES”, a Manray event, or assisting at Xmortis or Bean Town’s "The Gothic Formal!" Xtine helps bring the news of GothCruise to the masses yearning to sail the high seas. She not only in charge of communication with Cruises Only and Royal Caribbean, she coordinates the entertainment, our group events, and the pre-cruise gatherings. Xtine has been with the GothCruise Brain Trust since GC14.


Bob WestphalBob (aka TheOneBob) has been an integral part of GC since our very first voyage and has been at the helm since GothCruise 6. As of GCXVIII, Bob promoted himself to GothCruise CEO and turned the job of running things over to Xtine. He's still busy, however, updating the website and writing our Freakishly Asked Question page. Bob’s been on several Convergence committees, and headed up what some call the very best Convergence ever, Convergence 14-Ybor City.  He is also one of the folks featured in "Goth Cruise the Movie." If that's not enough, Bob is also known as the host of the long-time dark music radio show called The Shape of Things to Come which was broadcast in the NYC region from 1985 to 2005.

Peter Coffin: Since the earliest days of GothCruise, Peter has been a valuable source of cruise knowledge. He is a veteran of  Convergence, CorpGoth and has been on more GothCruises than most. If you have a question about a port, an excursion, a ship or an itinerary, he'll be the guy who’s researched the answer. While he may not be a know-it-all, Peter is certainly a know-how-to-find-it-all.
