In November 2009, QUEENSRYCHE — Geoff Tate, Michael Wilton, Scott Rockenfield, Eddie Jackson and Mike Stone — will board the MSC Poesia to headline “ShipRocked,” an unparalleled five-day rock and roll music cruise. Departing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 15th, ShipRocked will sail to Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Grand Cayman, before returning on November 20th.
“Everyone in the band is excited to share this new performing experience with our fans,” states QUEENSRYCHE front man Geoff Tate. “We’ll crank it up, drink some wine and bask in the sun on the Caribbean together. The ShipRocked cruise will definitely be rockin’ come next November and we hope you can join us in the festivities.”
In addition to QUEENSRYCHE (www.queensryche.com), ShipRocked will feature live performances on multiple stages by Skid Row, EndeverafteR, Lynam, StoneRider and several other major artists being announced soon. Throughout the cruise, ShipRocked passengers will be treated to an array of on-board events and activities, including meet and greets with the artists, theme nights, heavy metal karaoke, contests, charity auctions, and maybe even a few all-star jam sessions!
Everyone on-board will feel like a rock star, as they bask in both sun and luxury on MSC’s Poesia. The Poesia is the third spectacular vessel in the MSC Cruise Line’s “Musica” family of ships. This amazing super-liner features MSC Cruise Line’s signature Italian inspired decor, impeccable service, sumptuous cuisine in multiple restaurants, beautiful swimming pools, hot tubs, a full-service spa and fitness center. Nearly two-thirds of the ship’s staterooms include private balconies!
ShipRocked will truly be the ultimate rock and roll vacation and backstage pass!
