Concert Cruises Offer All-Access Adventure

March 07, 2016 - By: Sarah Hovis

 Part floating festival and part mini vacation, themed concert cruises offer a whole lot of fun for fans who dream of partying with their favorite bands… and thousands of their closest friends. Whatever your musical interest, chances are there’s a cruise that meets your criteria. The company spearheading many of these cruises is Atlanta-based
Sixthman. Considered the
pioneer of themed cruising, Sixthman’s motto is ‘LIVE LOUD,’ and they take it seriously. For 15 years they’ve orchestrated unforgettable music experiences—hosting over 200,000 guests on cruises
featuring artists like
KISS,
Kid Rock, Zac Brown Band, Paramore,
Pitbull, Sister Hazel, and Train. They’re also connected with
Mad Decent Boat Party, and chances are you’ve probably heard of
The Rock Boat, which celebrated its Sweet 16 this year. Setting sail on
Norwegian Cruise Lines, festival goers on The Rock Boat are treated to an
immersive experience that includes 30-plus bands who each perform multiple times during the cruise. There’s also the opportunity for additional meet and greets and sponsor events with your favorite artists. What else
is included in your ticket price besides
sun, fun, and awesome music? Round-trip cruise, all meals (everything from gourmet fare to outdoor grills), use of the ship's beautiful pool and hot tub, and other amenities. Just don’t forget the other ‘extras’ like airfare, taxes and fees, etc. Read the fine print
carefully. And memories. These cruises are as much about the people you’re with as the bands you’re watching. They become your family—the really cool relative you see once a year, which explains why these cruises attract people from all over the world and why over 50-percent of cruisers return year after year.
