Holy Ship electronic music cruises in January and February are barely over, and 2016 sailings have just been announced.

Holy Ship 2016 cruises are planned Jan. 3 to 6 and Feb. 10 to 13 on the MSC Divina for sailings from Miami to the Bahamas, according to a statement. No cabin prices have been released.

Cabins go on sale to the Shipfam crowd (a.k.a. Holy Ship veterans who receive passwords for presale) next Tuesday and Wednesday, then to the general public at 9 a.m. Pacific time on March 12. Both 2015 cruises sold out.

How could it be that Swarovski crystal staircases on the Divina mesh with acts like Skrillex, Fatboy slim and DJ Snake?


“No one’s throwing furniture over the balcony, everyone’s enjoying the music and looking out for each other -- we haven’t had any major issues really,” Hard Events founder and DJ known as Destructo Gary Richards told Billboard magazine last month.

The cruises’ signature private on-shore beach parties will be held at Coco Cay in the Bahamas for the January cruise and on Grand Bahama Island for the February trip.

The floating festival for people 21 and older also features pool parties, DJ sets and other activities during a day at sea. A lineup of top DJs and other performers for 2016 will be released at a later date.
