Weezer and cruise company Rose Tours announced the lineup for the second edition of The Weezer Cruise. Launching from Jacksonville, Florida on February 13 of next year, the cruise will hit new Caribbean ports—including Freeport and Nassau in the Bahamas—as fans celebrate Valentine's Day and President's Day weekend with their favorite bands, before returning to port on February 17.
What a fun way to spend two holidays – get your romance on, nerd rockers who like the day off that comes with Prez Day!
The artists hand-selected by Weezer to rock the boat in 2014 are: Toro y Moi, comedian Adam DeVine (from "Workaholics"), Ash, Bleached, Caveman, DIIV, Holy Fuck, Ozma, Palma Violets, The Cribs, The Orwells and The Relationships.
As previously announced, main headliners Weezer will perform three sets during the cruise, including an unprecedented Beach Concert with Weezer on their own private island (off of Nassau's coast). Joining Weezer for the special concert on the sand will be Cat Power.
Oooh, even more fun.
Reservations for the cruise are available now. Prices start at $599 per person, with a $300 per person deposit needed at the time of booking. For more details and up-to-the-minute information, visit the Weezer Cruise website.
It's a musical vacation, so that's why the price might seem steep. But you get tons of value for your cash!
Weezer's Rivers Cuomo said, "Once we locked in all these great artists I started to feel Weezer is real lucky to be able to go on this cruise. Sharing the boat with them and all of our fans is going to be so much fun."
Weezer's Pat Wilson said, "Why not join us on a Weezer Cruise to the Caribbean? Magic feelings will turn into magic memories, magically. I am a big fan of Ash and Cat Power and looking forward to seeing the other bands too."
The Weezer Cruise 2014 will bring fans on board a world-class cruise ship to experience deluxe accommodations during an incredible four days and nights. Besides checking out the musical performances, cruisers will also get a rare chance to see their favorite musicians off-stage as well, during a special fan Q&A session with Weezer; an interactive Weezer Game Show; and a photo session for all guests (aka "Weezer shipmates") with the band. There will also be evening theme nights; complimentary meals; a one-hour open bar cocktail party; and much more. Each of the bands on the cruise will also participate in special activities with fans. With performers playing continuously every day at various on-board venues, fans will be able to get close for most sets.
In addition to all the Weezer Cruise activities, the ship features an array of amenities for guests, including: 24-hour room service; a fitness center with gym, plus yoga and Pilates sessions; two swimming pools and a whirlpool; a variety of casual and gourmet dining options; an art gallery; internet café; gaming options for adults and kids, including mini golf, table tennis and more; karaoke rooms; a library; a video arcade; a casino featuring blackjack, craps and poker tournaments; a hair and beauty salon; spa treatments; duty-free shopping options; and more.
What a rockin' vacay!
