This October, fans of the iconic rock band KISS may very well have their dreams come true as Carnival Destiny sets sail on a five-day immersive charter. Called The KISS Kruise, theme cruise promoter Sixthman is taking names now for pre-sale sign up.
Sixthman specializes in full-ship charters and recently wrapped up the latest Kid Rock's Chillin' The Most Cruise 2011. Set to sail October 13-17, 2011, The KISS Kruise will go on sale to the general public June 7, 2011 but fans of the band can get first pick of cabins by signing up early online.
KISS ARMY Fan Club members (cool people) can sign-up for the pre-sale by May 22nd to receive priority, will be emailed pre-booking information on or around May 23rd and be able to book as early as May 26th.
Not a KISS ARMY Fan Club Member? (Who isn't?) Join now and be included in that first round of bookings.
Non-KISS ARMY Fan Club members that would like to participate in the pre-sale have until May 30th to sign up. They will be emailed pre-booking information on or around May 31st and will be able to book your cabin as early as June 2nd, 2011.
Guests on The KISS Kruise will take a photo with the band and enjoy two shows, one indoor and one outdoor. At the big outdoor show, cruisers will catch KISS' acoustic side, and the band will be sans makeup. Other events will include a Q&A with the band, a massive Halloween party, games, theme nights, and other "rowdy" onboard activities. KISS will also be inviting other musical acts to keep everyone rocking.
Several promoters and travel agencies specialize in theme cruises, chartering partial or full ships for these special sailings. Sixthman does it a bit differently.
"Sixthman cruises are different from other theme cruises because we go out of our way to make sure all of the guests are happy. They get a full festival experience and end up building lasting relationships with other guests and artists. Each event builds a community." Sixthman CEO Andy Levine told us recently adding "We also offer proximity to the artists - the performers who sail with us are open with their fans and enjoy hanging out around the ship.
We don't create a "VIP" environment - everyone who books has the same "backstage pass"-like advantages"
