In an interview with Wallace Immen
bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons
stated about the first-ever Kiss Kruise
(which was held in October 2011), "The Kiss Kruise
is a chance for all of us — the band and the fans — to have a ball. Just let your hair down and not worry about it at all. KISS
has always been about breaking the rules. We've never liked that moat — the stage — separating the band from the fans. So whenever we do a show, we try to take the action right to your face. A cruise will let the fans get up close. We try to take it inside you, we want you to smell it and taste it and feel it."
When asked if the fans were going to get to interact with the band on the cruise, Gene
said, "We're going to have a deck up top to ourselves and we will certainly want to bring up fans. It may to a little difficult to get down to the lower levels and hang out a lot, because you've got 3,000 people on board, who are basically going to shred you to pieces. It's all appreciated, of course, and I say all this with tongue in cheek — I don't mean my tongue in your cheek, but you know what I mean. The real idea of this cruise is to have fun. Everything about KISS
is over the top. Everything about it is meant to really make every day we have above ground a fun day."
