The inaugural John Schneider Offshore cruise will set sail from the city to Cozumel, Mexico on 5 November (15), but on the eve of the four-day party at sea, the actor will host a wander around New Orleans' spookiest sites.

He tells WENN, "I love spending time with my fans; these are some of the people who paid my rent over the years."

Schneider will perform music on the cruise and host question-and-answer sessions.

He adds, "There will be a few surprise guests as well."
