The annual ShipRocked cruise has officially wrapped. This year’s cruise was the biggest yet for the annual event. It saw a total of nearly 2,500 people on board the MSC Poesia. The cruise featured the likes of: Godsmack, Five Finger Death Punch, Korn, P.O.D., Sevendust, Geoff Tate, and a slew of other acts. It was sponsored by General Suns, and was fueled by Monster Energy.
The cruise’s record breaking attendance was just one high point for this year’s event. Along with the band lineup and record breaking attendance, the cruise’s annual Cancer Sucks charity auction raised some $70,000 for cancer research. The auction featured one-of-a-kind memorabilia from bands on both this year’s cruise and those bands who took part in past cruises.
Plans are already in the works for next year’s ShipRocked cruise. A pre-sale for returning guests will begin soon.
