FT. LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (July 21, 2009) - Get ready to Ratt n' Roll on the high seas! Sunset Strip superheroes Ratt will sail the Caribbean this November as part of ShipRocked, a multi-day floating festival. ShipRocked sails from Ft. Lauderdale on November 15 and returns you to reality five days later. Along the way, ShipRocked ports in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Georgetown, Grand Cayman. Queensryche, Tesla, Skid Row, Lynam, Endeverafter, Broken Teeth, Stereoside, Stonerider and the Niki Barr Band will join Ratt for the wet n' wild vacation of lifetime.
Ratt are known for mega glam metal hits like "Round and Round," "Lay It Down" and "Back for More." Ratt will rock your face off and party hard with fans aboard ShipRocked. Who knows? You might even hear a choice cut or two from the band's new album, due sometime this fall.
On ShipRocked, it's all about the music - but other activities abound like exclusive meet and greets with the artists, theme nights, heavy metal karaoke, contests, charity auctions and maybe even a few all-star jam sessions!
"The biggest advantages ShipRocked has over other land-based festivals are intimacy and access," says ShipRocked promoter Alan Koenig. "The venue and audience size are smaller, so the performances are much more up close and personal than they would be otherwise. Plus it is substantially easier for the bands to meet and greet all of their fans onboard, versus just a few people before or after a show. Add to that a number of other unique interactive events hosted by the artists and our guests will have plenty of opportunities to spend some quality time with their idols."
ShipRocked sails November 15 -20, 2009 on the beautiful MSC Poesia. The Poesia is the third vessel in the MSC Cruise Line's "Musica" family of ships. This ship features MSC Cruise Line's signature Italian inspired decor, impeccable service, sumptuous cuisine in multiple restaurants, beautiful swimming pools, hot tubs plus a full-service spa and fitness center. Nearly two-thirds of the ship's staterooms include private balconies! Pricing varies by cabin and is subject to availability, but starts at only $749 (per person, double occupancy) for an interior stateroom. The prices include your cruise (room and board), all the concerts, meet and greets and other exclusive events during the trip.

ShipRocked will truly be the ultimate rock and roll vacation and backstage pass!
