ROCK LEGENDS CRUISE TO SET SAIL LATER THIS YEAR WITH ALL-STAR BAND LINE-UP
The first-ever Rock Legends Cruise in support of the work of the Native American Heritage Association is slated to depart Fort Lauderdale on December 1 of this year aboard The Royal Caribbean Line’s Liberty of the Seas. Headlining the five day cruise is “That little ol’ band from Texas,” Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top and George Thorogood and The Destroyers who bring their “Bad To The Bone” approach to the high seas.
The unprecedented cruise will benefit NAHA’s mission to provide emergency assistance and self- help programs to the Sioux Native Americans living on reservations in South Dakota. Along with ZZ Top and Thorogood, the Rock Legends Cruise includes multiple performances from John Kay and Steppenwolf, The Marshall Tucker Band, Dickey Betts & Great Southern, Foghat, Johnny Winter, Molly Hatchet, The Outlaws, Blackfoot, Pat Travers, and SwampDaWamp.
It is expected that upwards of 3,200 music fans will be aboard the ship, one of the most biggest, fastest and luxurious passenger vessels in service today, served by a crew of 1,300 on 18 decks. With a gross tonnage of 160,000, it can truly be said that the rock-themed benefit voyage will be a “heavy” experience for both bands and fans. The ship, almost as long as four football fields, cruises at 21.6 knots, is scheduled for port stops in the Bahamas that include Coco Cay and Nassau. The main attraction of the cruise is, of course, multiple performances by the Rock Legends bands aboard in four different on-board venues, The Deck, The Platinum Theater, Studio B and The Sphinx. The ship also features on-board surfing thanks to its FlowRider wave generator, an ice skating rink, a boxing ring, a full-sized volleyball/basketball court, cantilevered whirlpools and range of gourmet restaurants.
NAHA President David G. Myers commented, “We are very excited to be offering music fans and friends a unique opportunity to experience five days of brilliant musical performances from these true Rock Legends in a setting that is without equal. Our hope is that this innovative approach to fundraising will increase our ability to serve Native American communities in need tenfold.”
