Rock fans and cruises? They go together more than you think. Cruises featuring bands -- from heavy metal to classic rock ‘n’ roll -- give you a chance to party at sea and meet some of your favorite performers.

And who doesn’t want to dress up for a costume party on the KISS Kruise? Here are four Caribbean cruises that are all about the music

KISS Kruise VI calls on fans to sign up for a “head-banging, fist-pumping mission at sea.” Yes, you can join the KISS navy and rock out to heavy metal aboard the Norwegian Pearl.


The cruise sails from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico; and George Town, Grand Cayman, Nov. 4-9.

Most of the cheaper cabins have already sold out. As of Thursday, there are about 50 staterooms left. Prices range from $1,055 to $2,110 -- but there’s no saying how long they’ll last. Info: KISS Kruise VI
