There's gonna be music, excitement, craziness and maybe — just maybe...somebody's goin' to get naked. Come join us on ShipRocked!!"
Adds SEETHER's Shaun Morgan: "We're really looking forward to being back on ShipRocked! We had a blast in 2016 and we intend to go even bigger on the next one!"

ShipRocked producer Alan Koenig of ASK4 Entertainment says: "We are very proud that the ShipRocked experience continues to grow, and gets better and better with each sailing. This year, we're primed and ready to take our ninth voyage to infinity and beyond, combining two of our favorite things, space and great live rock music! Blasting off from Port Canaveral with an incredible lineup, 2018's mission will continue to push the limits and promises to be the most out of this world vacation yet, taking one small step for man, one giant leap for ShipRocker-kind!"
