PiercingMetal Thoughts: In the past I’ve pointed out that I’ve never been on any of these musical cruises but this is one of the excurions that has interested me the most. This and of course the KISS Kruise since I am an absolute diehard for all things KISS. As you might have realized this will be the first adventure since their 2020 cruise. The 2021 edition that was announced HERE never came to pass or was even announced as being cancelled. This distressed a lot of people in an already precarious time. The 2022 edition was never even attempted and if there was a discussion, I never saw a single press item about it or heard about one from colleagues in the realm. I am happy to find an event that brings so many awesome bands together coming back for another run and who knows…maybe this time I will look into going. What about you readers? Have you gone on this before and if you have will you be returning to the high seas with Metal as your soundtrack? Chime in down below in the comments and I shall see you again next time.
