For those who have never been on ShipRocked, it's impossible to fully appreciate not only the music but also the sense of community and family. Before embarking on ShipRocked 2017, I was among those that just knew about the music. Yes, this was my first cruise ever, and I was broken in on ShipRocked. I knew that it was a cruise that offered the best bands in Rock, including Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Alter Bridge, Pop Evil, Lacey Sturm, Art of Dying, Wilson, Crobot, Sevendust, Cane Hill, Stitched Up Heart, RavenEye and more. With each band playing twice, it allowed time for ink by the one and only SouthBay Mike or Tahiti Gil while on the high seas.
