Super-fans of the Los Angeles native band, Weezer will be happy to know that the band is setting sail back into the water for their second annual Weezer Cruise. Wait, how can you combine paradise with one of the greatest alternative bands of all time? Well, it’s been two years since Weezer set sail aboard a Carnival cruise ship from Miami to the beautiful Mexican island of Cozumel, and the band has agreed to voyage out into the sea again in the year 2014.
For next year’s excursion, fans of the Grammy award- winning band will set sail from Jacksonville, Florida and head to a new Caribbean location to the islands of Freeport and Nassau in the Bahamas. Fans will get to celebrate Valentine’s Day and President’s Day with the “Beverly Hills” band, so if you’re a fan of planning early…perhaps this could be next years Valentine’s Day gift for your special someone.
Weezer will perform three sets throughout the duration of the cruise, including a first-time “Beach Concert” on the bands own private island exclusive for cruise attendees. Hearing “Island In the Sun” through a pair of headphones is one thing, imagine hearing it live on an actual island? The cruise will also feature various events including; a special Q&A with Weezer, an interactive Weezer game show, private beach party in Nassau, photo sessions with the band for all guests, and everything else you’d find on a cruise ship.
Bands like Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr., Wavves, and various other alternative indie acts accompanied the ship on the first cruise to provide vacation-goers with entertainment while Weezer was not. Acts supporting the band for the 2014 cruise are set to be announced soon.
Presale reservations for the cruise go on sale to attendees of the first Weezer Cruise beginning Wednesday, March 20th, and all remaining reservations will then go on sale to the general public on Thursday, March 21st.
