KISS has once again partnered up with the industry leaders in music festivals at sea, Sixthman, to announce the upcoming voyage of The KISS Kruise VIII. The cruise is set to sail on Halloween October 31, 2018 on Norwegian Jade leaving out of Miami, Florida.
The announcement comes on the heels of the recent return of the sold-out KISS Kruise VII. The KISS Kruise VII left from New Orleans, Louisiana on Norwegian Pearl visiting Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico. Along the way, the KISS Navy was treated to a first-ever KISS storytellers sail away set as well as 2 full-scale KISS masked concerts in the ship's indoor Stardust Theater. Joining the musical legends on board were Bruce and Bob Kulick, EXTREME, STEEL PANTHER, Derek St. Homes, BIG ROCK SHOW, BITERS, LED ZEPAGAIN, HARD DAY'S NIGHT, Sophie Simmons, THE DIVES, Jake J and the KILLJOYS, and KI.
Beyond the music, 2,300 KISS fans were treated to a wide array of activities led by the band, including: "Kruise Kitchen with Paul Stanley", "Are You Smarter Than A Rock God with Gene Simmons", "Name That Solo with Tommy Thayer" and "Drum Off with Eric Singer." KISS Kruisers were also able to get one to one with rock-n-roll history in the exclusive Kissworld Konfidential panel that featured Bruce Kulick, Bob Kulick, Big John Harte, Michael James Jackson and Lydia Criss. Throughout the sailing, the ship fully embodied Kissworld with historical costume displays, face painting, a full-service tattoo parlor, photo opportunities with KISS memorabilia, once-in-a-lifetime chances to mingle with their favorite artists, culminating with each guest receiving a signed commemorative poster and photo with KISS.
A destination of her own, Norwegian Jade offers guests Norwegian Cruise Line's signature freedom and flexibility to enjoy 11 onboard bars and lounges, 15 dining experiences, one outdoor pool, hot tubs, and a full menu of spa treatments.
