Joining the “Monster” headliners is an epic Metal lineup featuring artists from around the world, including The Winery Dogs, Great White, Loudness, Jake E.

The cruise is based on the legendary rock festival at Castle Donington, England where thousands of rabid fans converged on the soggy turf of Donington Park and became part of rock history as a memorable event was born...the Monsters of Rock! Fast forward to the present...the tradition of the Monsters of Rock continues, this time in the Bahamas aboard a luxury cruise ship, showcasing the greatest floating 80s hard rock festival in history.

For one all-inclusive price, fans will enjoy a myriad of special Heavy Metal concerts, events and activities, designed to please the most discerning rock & roll metal-head. While the music is the centerpiece, this is more than a “Concert Cruise” event...it is fantasy camp designed for interaction between artists and fans. The fun will begin the moment fans begin to board the beautiful MSC Divina, meeting new friends poolside during the kickoff Sail Away Concert.

In addition, fans will experience inviting Music Venues & Events, featuring artists performing all day and night on the Main Stage plus the famous Monster’s Acoustic Stages, Back-Alley Stage and a Monster’s first...the largest cruise ship Pool Stage in the world for partying under the stars. Plans are in the works for many more fan experience events and activities, all of which will be announced over the weeks to come.

The Monsters of Rock Cruise is a playground for the serious Heavy Metal fan where music and a luxury cruise hook up for the vacation of a lifetime. Additional information including rates and cruise details will be available on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at www.MonstersOfRockCruise.com.
