Second Weezer Cruise Set for February 2014
Fri, 15 Mar 2013 15:37:53
Two years after their first music festival-at-sea set sail, Weezer and cruise company Rose Tours are returning for another round. The 2014 edition of The Weezer Cruise launches from Jacksonville, Florida on February 13 and 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.
So you have a whole year to plan. Buy a cabin on your credit card and pay it off for the next year, so you can look forward to the fun you are going to have. That's our suggestion.
Main headliners Weezer will perform three sets during the cruise, including an unprecedented "Beach Concert with Weezer" on their own private island. Yes, their own private island show. Fucking cool, right? In addition, the cruise will feature a variety of acts hand-selected by the members of Weezer. Those bands will be announced soon.
Presale reservations for the cruise will be available to attendees of the first Weezer Cruise beginning Wednesday, March 20 at 12 noon ET. All remaining reservations will then go on sale to the general public on Thursday, March 21 at 12 noon ET. Prices start at $599 per person. A $300 per person deposit at the time of booking is all you need to join the biggest Weezer party the Seven Seas have ever seen.
Here is why it is worth the coin you are going to drop, besides the fact that it's WEEZER!
The Weezer Cruise will bring fans on board a world class cruise ship to experience deluxe accommodations during an incredible four days and nights across the Caribbean Sea. Besides checking out performances throughout each day and night, cruisers will also get a rare chance to see their favorite musicians off-stage as well, with a special fan Q&A session with Weezer; an interactive Weezer Game Show; and a photo session for all guests 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, with no long lines for the bar. A continually updated list of 2014 cruise activities can be found www.theweezercruise.com.
In addition to all the Weezer Cruise activities, the ship features an incredible array of amenities for guests, including: 24-hour room service; a fitness center with gym as well as 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; comedy performances; a casino featuring blackjack, craps and poker tournaments; a hair and beauty salon; spa treatments; duty-free shopping options; and much more.
It's a vacation where you can rock!
