ShipRocked veterans Sevendust will treat fans to a rare acoustic performance. Sevendust's Morgan Rose explains, "Sevendust has played ShipRocked a number of times and it's become our favorite event to be a part of. This time around we're gonna add a little twist and do an acoustic show. We haven't done this in years and thought what better time to do it again, than with our friends on ShipRocked? We are beyond excited to be a part of this amazing event and can't wait to see all you guys again!"
Tickets for the ShipRocked 2014 experience go on sale Monday, July 1 at Noon Eastern Time at www.ShipRocked.com.
Each ShipRocked is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that provides guests with the opportunity to vacation with their favorite bands, meet new friends, and reunite with old friends year after year. On any given day, guests might find themselves dining, drinking, rocking out, swimming, working out, or gambling alongside their favorite rock stars. The full-ship charter provides a one-of-a-kind experience for guests to have the time of their life with thousands of like-minded friends.
For the first time in 2014, ShipRocked will wash ashore on its own private island. Guests will spend two full days enjoying concerts and activities on a private beach on Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas (http://www.ncl.com/freestyle-cruise/great-stirrup-cay). The island features a large performance area on the beach with full production for rock shows and offers various island excursions such as parasailing, snorkeling, canoeing and more.
2014 also marks a vessel change for ShipRocked. The January 26-30, 2014 ShipRocked voyage will be held onboard the Norwegian Pearl, which Frommer's calls one of the "most original mainstream megaships." The Pearl features luxurious accommodations, along with 16 delicious dining options, 13 bars and lounges, casino, spa, fitness center, a chic bowling alley, rock climbing wall, sports court, two pools, waterslides, hot tubs, and much more.
As in the past, ShipRocked guests will enjoy multiple performances from every band on different stages throughout the ship, artist meet and greets, Q&A sessions, along with artist-hosted activities including contests, game shows, insane parties, theme nights and more.
In other news, the first ShipRocked Summer Camp was held last weekend (June 14-16) at Club Getaway in Kent, Connecticut.
