The Rock Boat: The World’s Great Floating Rock Festival

What do you get when you mix epic week-long boat parties, jaw-dropping tropical destinations, bottomless cocktails, some of the best musicians on earth, and luxurious cruise ships? The Rock Boat music festival, of course!

The boat was conceptualized in 2001 by Florida rock band Sister Hazel, and a travel company from Georgia called Sixthman. The first-ever event was held on the stunning cruise ship Carnival Jubilee, attended by around 400 fans as they sailed from Florida to Mexico. Today, it’s one of the most highly anticipated annual music festivals for adults with discerning taste in music, travel, and art.

Tonic, Collective Soul, Vertical Horizon, Barenaked Ladies, Better Than Ezra, and other big musicians have performed for the event in the past. For the 2020 event, no less than NEEDTOBREATHE, Tonic, Gaelic Storm, Red Wanting Blue, Melodime, and more will be playing their hearts out for you.

Festival goers will also get to enjoy all the amazing amenities onboard the cruise ship: think hot tubs, swimming pools, a casino, fitness center and spa, sports court, and more. The organizers have also curated fun day and night activities for non-stop entertainment at sea and on the beach.

Rock Boat will be the best decision you’re going to make this year.

If you want to stay underwater, you’ll be greeted by the most vibrant marine life you’ve ever seen in Belize. Roatan is going to be another unforgettable stop on your cruise. Tropical beaches just don’t get better than this. The last stop is Honduras with its large barrier reef and jungle-covered mountains.

Miami’s tropical vibe and picturesque streets lined with Art Deco architecture, a vibrant art culture and rich history makes it a paradise on earth.
