The crux of the matter is that ShipRocked essentially replaces the Motley Cruise as the flagship (get it?) standard for water-based festivals. So far, ShipRocked includes a roster of Queensryche, Lynam, Endeverafter, Stonerider and Skid Row. There are two more bands to be added - and they are headline-level acts. Trust me!
Cabins are available for sale very soon. As five day cruises go, ShipRocked is cheap. Just $599 bucks. The cruise departs next November from Fort Lauderdale and ports in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Grand Cayman. The cruise happens aboard the MSC Poesia.
You can visit the official website here. Cabins go on sale November 17. I'm not lying: I want to go on this cruise. I like the length and the time of year. Besides concerts there are other activities, like heavy metal karaoke and charity auctions. Plus, you get to do all the traditional cruise stuff like eating too much and laying like a slug by the pool. We'll see if I can scrounge up the cash for this. I think I can promise you some pretty good coverage if I can make it happen.
