Presented by Monster Energy with ASK4 Entertainment doing the heavy lifting, ShipRocked departs Fort Lauderdale, Fla., aboard the good ship MSC Poesia Nov. 27. This year’s four-day voyage will also include performances by Filter, Fuel, Black Stone Cherry, LIT, Queensryche’s Geoff Tate, former GNR member Gilby Clarke and In This Moment.
Returning Dec. 1, ports of call include Key West, Fla., and Nassau, Bahamas. Expect more bands to be announced.
Along with more than enough bands to awaken anyone sleeping with the fishes, ShipRocked will also feature artist meet-and-greets and Q&A sessions along with game shows, contests, parties, theme nights and more.
ShipRocked is also a Caribbean cruise, meaning you get all the amenities and facilities cruise ships are known for, such as fitness centers, whirlpools, swimming pools, multiple restaurants, a disco and a Vegas-style casino.

Not only does ShipRocked see fans returning year after year, but the annual cruise also attracts bands for repeat performances. Sevendust has been on the last two cruises, Black Stone Cherry was onboard in 2010 and Godsmack’s Shannon Larkin played ShipRock 2011 with his band Another Animal.
“Being invited to be a part of ShipRocked again is amazing,” Sevendust’s Morgan Rose said. “We’ve had an awesome time the past two years. It gives us a chance to be so close to the people, while on tour it’s nearly impossible to do that. I hope to see all of our fans on the boat!”
