The Press Release:
ASK4 Entertainment has announced a shift in dates for ShipRocked 2021. The premier rock music cruise vacation originally scheduled for January 2021 will now take place on May 9 – 14, 2021 on the Carnival Magic, featuring the same ports as the original itinerary.
After selling out the past five years, ShipRocked expanded to the larger Carnival Dream class ship for 2021 and staterooms are nearly sold out.
Guest reservations for ShipRocked 2021 will automatically be transferred to the new sailing dates. For those unavailable for the new itinerary, a full refund will be available with no cancelation fees incurred prior to Tuesday, August 25.
ShipRocked 2021 departs Miami, Florida for 5 days of music and adventure, including ShipRocked’s first-ever visit to the Dominican Republic – at Amber Cove just outside of Puerto Plata. ShipRocked 2021 will also include a return to the private island of Half Moon Cay in The Bahamas, an idyllic sun-drenched paradise with turquoise seas, where guests can attend an epic ShipRocked beach party. Look for the initial ShipRocked 2021 music lineup to be announced in the coming months at www.ShipRocked.com. In the meantime, see highlights of ShipRocked 2020 here: https://youtu.be/smI25ypelOw
ShipRocked creator and producer Alan Koenig of ASK4 Entertainment explained, “After careful thought and consideration for all of our guests, artists and crew, we have decided to reschedule ShipRocked 2021. We know how eager the ShipRocked Family is to rock hard and vacation harder together again #SOON, and we didn’t want to them to have to wait any longer than necessary, so we’ve pushed the date to spring and look forward to delivering the kind of experience that our guests have grown to love, expect, and deserve!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Historically speaking I’ve never been on any of these music cruises despite having interest in participating in a few of them. My main interests of course fall to the 70K Tons of Metal Cruise and the KISS Kruise but I’ve not been able to work out the financials or schedule at the time that is needed to do so. Despite this, I do think its a good idea for them to move the experience to a little later in the year because we’ve just learned that events like the NAMM Show along with CES and the NY Times Travel Show being curtailed. These are all big happenings for their fans and in January, and while some have become online affairs there are others that have just decided to cancel for the season and say “see you next year”. Closing up I wonder what you fans that have done this cruise think about the news and actually has the news of the day found you deciding to miss it this time around and wait to go in another year or so. Chime in down in the comments and I will see you next time.
