SHIPROCKED CRUISE 2017: JANUARY 16TH – 20TH
ShipRocked is just around the corner. If you have ever stowed away on a previous excursion, you know that it is not just a music cruise, but a family of sorts. Those that have been on ShipRocked come back year after year, one of the reasons it typically sells out 6-7 months in advance of setting sail on the high seas. Not only are you on a cruise to warm tropical paradises, but you are afloat with the best of the best in the music world and world famous tattoo artists. It’s such a family to many people that they’ve had the ShipRocked logo(s) tattooed to various parts of their bodies (as seen in the following pics).
This year’s version, leaving Miami January 16th & returning January 20th, is living up to that. This years musical lineup includes: Papa Roach, Alter Bridge, Sevendust, Pop Evil, Breaking Benjamin, Art of Dying, Crobot, Lacey Sturm, Stitched Up Heart, Letters From the Fire and several more. The boat will also feature The Stowaways – an all-star group of scaliwags and who’s who of music with artists from bands including: All That Remains/Oli Herbert, Anthrax‘s Frank Bello, Aranda‘s Dameon and Gabe Aranda, Buckcherry‘s Josh Todd and Stevie Dacanay, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Hoobastank‘s Doug Robb and Chris Hesse, King’s X‘s Jerry Gaskill, Madame Mayhem, former Papa Roach drummer Dave Buckner, P.O.D.’s Sonny Sandoval, Geoff Tate, The Halo Method’s Lukas Rossi and Miles McPherson, Unloco’s Joey and Jorge Duenas, and Volbeat‘s Rob Caggiano. The high seas ink masters tattooing on board include Southbay Mike & Tahiti Gil.
Now that you know who is performing and who is tattooing, what else can you expect from this music adventure on the seas? The ship will be leaving Miami, FL and head to Grand Turk. This Carnival Cruise will include all the cruise must haves: food, food, and more food, big kid drinks, pool parties on board and on the beach at Grand Turk, meet and greets with the bands, more onboard entertainment, and more fun in the sun than may be legally allowed. The bonus is the MUSIC and tattoos. Not only can you rock out on this cruise you can get inked. With tattoo artists Tahiti Gil and Southbay Mike on board to get the best in the ink world.
