PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I’m sad to keep sharing the bad news here at the Metal Media Command HQ about pretty much everything, you cannot disagree that 2020 has been a bear for this kind of stuff for sure. Now based on the logistics of this particular cruise we were not planning on attending but it sure sounded interesting because we do love a good time here at PiercingMetal.com – I’ve not been on any of the music cruises yet despite my interest in several of them. Sure I’ve been on boats plenty of times over the years but I hardly think that the Staten Island Ferry and the Circle Line count as much when it comes to entertainment. That being said I wonder what the vox populi has to say about this latest bit of news. Feel free to chime in with your topical notions down in the space below. See you next time.

At Sea and in life, unpredictable storms can arise and you have to stand your ground and wait for the high winds to pass. The 70000TONS OF METAL crew did this last year and will once again confront the winds with the loudest Heavy Metal growl imaginable. They are ready for their 10th Anniversary Voyage and together with their trusted Sailors, they are confident that they will guide their ship through any stormy Sea.

A Headbangers Paradise on board a luxury cruise ship… and that for ten years in a row! What to many people seemed like an unlikely and unrealistic combination back in 2011, when 70000TONS OF METAL first set sail, is now 10 sold out events later. This one of a kind festival proves how cruising and Heavy Metal do in fact go hand in hand. Indeed, what’s not to love about enjoying your favorite Heavy Metal bands under the hot Caribbean sun from a jacuzzi with an ice cold beverage in your hand?
