I'm also gonna go out of my way to make sure we all have a great time while on the high seas by loading the 3 days with any and all activities a fan of my flicks could want! I'll make it an experience folks will treasure - and all you have to do is bring your own booty!” Smith said in an official announcement, sharing more about Jay and Silent Bob Present Cruise Askew.
