So I thought it would be fun to plan out a few hypothetical "Fan Breakout" sessions. All of these are just fun extra events where the boys wouldn't necessarily be present at all, but still super fun activities to bring us cruisers closer together because I still maintain one of the best parts of the cruise is meeting other fans.

Hosted by any/all of the lovely Backstreet wives on board (which of course would most likely just be Leighanne). The wive(s) dish about life on the road, what it's like to be married to a pop star, and of course spill some embarrassing secrets about their husbands. Q&A session to follow.
