ASK4 Entertainment has announced that the 2025 cruise itinerary for ShipRocked is set for January 19-25, departing from Miami, Florida on Carnival Magic, with stops at St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands (a new destination for ShipRockers) and Half Moon Cay in The Bahamas.

This year's sold-out ShipRocked (February 4-10) hosted over 4,000 guests from every U.S. state and 16 additional countries on Carnival Magic during a 6-day itinerary which departed from Miami and visited Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Bimini in The Bahamas, missing a scheduled port stop in Grand Cayman due to inclement weather in the region. The ultimate rock music cruise vacation features a different theme each year, with 2024 billed as "A ShipRocked Spooktacular." ShipRocked's mascot "Skully" changes his wardrobe each year to fit the theme.

Staterooms for ShipRocked 2024 sold out in an unprecedented 3 days, well before the music lineup was announced. Look for information on the ShipRocked 2025 on-sale soon at www.ShipRocked.com.

WRIF-FM in Detroit called ShipRocked, "...the best rock & roll festival in existence. Incredible bands, great people, a family vibe, non-stop activity choices," while The Travel Addict hailed ShipRocked as "the most epic getaway!"

The music lineup for ShipRocked 2024 included: I Prevail, Killswitch Engage, Beartooth, Highly Suspect, Badflower, Nonpoint, Black Stone Cherry, BRKN LOVE, Cassyette, Catch Your Breath, Crobot, Dayseeker, Dead Poet Society, Dorothy, Eva Under Fire, Fire From The Gods, From Ashes To New, Fury In Few, Hot Crazy, Luna Aura, Point North, Scene Queen, Sleep Theory, The Warning, Them Dirty Roses, Tigercub, Winona Fighter and Yonaka, along with special performances by Andy Wood Trio, Johnny Stevens of Highly Suspect, Josh Katz & Joey Morrow of Badflower, Keith Wallen of Breaking Benjamin and Matt James of Blacktop Mojo.

2024 also marked the return of guest favorite and former Carnival Cruise Director "Cookie," who joined the ShipRocked team as a host. Here are some of the highlights from ShipRocked 2024:

ShipRocked Artist Q&A featuring Brandon Yeagley (Crobot), Cullen Moore (Sleep Theory), Daniela Villarreal (The Warning), Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage), Johnny Stevens (Highly Suspect) and Luna Aura

ShipRocked's all-star cover band The Stowaways featured guest performances from Al McManus (ASK4 Entertainment), Angela Lese (Fingernails Are Pretty), Blake Allison (Devour The Day), Brandon Yeagley (Crobot), Chris Bishop (Crobot), Elias Soriano (Nonpoint), Emily Armstrong (Dead Sara), Eva Marie (Eva Under Fire), Hayley Cramer (former Pop Evil), Jamie Madrox (Twiztid), Jasen Rauch (Breaking Benjamin), Joey Varela (VRSTY), Jorge Duenas (Unloco), Justin Benlolo (BRKN Love), Keith Wallen (Breaking Benjamin), Leo Moracchioli (Frog Leap Studios), Matt James (Blacktop Mojo), Michael Starr (Steel Panther), Mike's Dead, Monoxide (Twiztid), Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Roy Mayorga (Ministry, Stone Sour), Shaun Smith, The Warning, and Tom Hane (former In This Moment) performing with core band Andy Wood Trio. There was also a very special appearance from The Captain himself, ASK4 founder Alan Koenig on cowbell.

The annual ShipRocked Cancer Sucks! onboard charity auction was hosted by Elias Soriano of NONPOINT and ShipRocked host Cookie and raised more than $100,000 for cancer research, bringing the overall total raised through the ShipRocked Cancer Sucks! onboard charity auction to more than $1 million. One coveted auction item featuring an AVENGED SEVENFOLD VIP package for two--including a rare meet & greet with the band--garnered over $10,000 for the charity.

The Music Experience by AmericanMusical.com lounge featured instruments for guests and musicians to play at leisure, a "fan jam," as well as guitar and drum competitions for guests, and a Q&A with Dylan Bowman of I PREVAIL and Dany Villarreal of THE WARNING.

Additional activities included:

  • Band Feud with I Prevail and Badflower
  • Beach Wars in Bimini hosted by From Ashes To New
  • Beer Pong hosted by AJ Channer (Fire From The Gods)
  • Belly Flop competition judged by Tigercub
  • Bingo hosted by Yonaka
  • Captain's Quarters Q&A with ShipRocked producer Alan Koenig
  • Deck Wars hosted by Eva Under Fire
  • Drunk Spelling Bee with BRKN Love

  • Tarot card readings by Angela Lese
  • Tattoo parlor hosted by Paradise Tattoo from Fort Myers, Florida
  • Theme nights
  • Trick Or Treat Trading
  • Zombie Beauty Pageant
The ShipRocked onboard schedule also included traditional cruise activities with a rock n' roll twist such as blackjack tournament, dodgeball tournament, live band karaoke, singles mixers, trivia contests and morning yoga.

A floating music festival, a rock & roll summer camp held in the dead of winter, a family reunion for the growing number of ShipRockers who have forged lifelong relationships out of a shared passion for music (and an occasional bucket of beer) - ShipRocked is the premier rock music vacation, offering dozens of performances and unique collaborations, artist-hosted events and activities, theme nights, and ample opportunity for fans and bands alike to unwind and create new friendships in tropical paradise.

Throughout the year, ShipRocked's community of "ShipRockers"-as well as others from around the world-are staying connected via "Making Waves - The ShipRocked Podcast," which launched in 2020 and is available for free through iTunes, Spotify and Google Podcasts. "Making Waves" features interviews with ShipRocked alumni artists, as well as other top music artists, actors and entertainment industry experts. It's distributed via Sound Talent Media/Evergreen Podcasts and is hosted by Chad Nicefield and Justin Press.
