If you have not heard, the rock band KISS is bringing back the KISS Kruise in 2012. The KISS Kruise II is a 4-night Halloween cruise, departing from Miami, Florida, on October 31, 2012, and returning on November 4, 2012. Passengers will sail aboard the Norwegian Pearl cruise liner, spending two days at sea and stopping off for a full day in Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas.
Passengers receive exclusive KISS perks aboard this Halloween-themed cruise including an indoor KISS rock concert, a KISS acoustic “unmasked” outdoor show, a pre-signed KISS Kruise II print and a cabin photo with KISS. Other on-board KISS events passengers can look forward to are the KISS Q&A session, where fans can ask all kinds of questions to all four band members, and KISS-hosted activities – and yes, this year, each band member will host an activity. Lastly, there are the wild-theme nights aboard the ship, the KISS Halloween party where passengers can dress up and participate in costume contests, and KISS’ all-new Navy activities that are strictly at-sea events.
The cruise itinerary is as follows:
– Depart Miami, Florida aboard the Norwegian Pearl on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, at approximately 4:00 pm EST
– Day at sea – Thursday, November 1
– Spend the day at Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Friday, November 2
