The annual ShipRocked cruise has slowly been leaking more and more details and amping up the fans as the January 16th, 2017 set sail date slowly approaches.

ShipRocked 2017 began pre-booking in early February this year and was completely sold out by mid-May, just one week after going on sale to the public. The lineup announcement came in early May, and with hard rock headliners Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach and Alter Bridge, it's no wonder tickets sold out in record time. Additional bands onboard the Carnival Victory ship will include: Sevendust, Pop Evil, Another Lost Year, Avatar, Cane Hill, Crobot, The Dead Deads, From Ashes To New, Lacey Sturm, Monster Truck, Mothership, Shaman's Harvest, Wilson, 12 Stones, Art of Dying, Letters From The Fire, Living Sacrifice, Them Guns and Stitched Up Heart. Aside from the full bands, ShipRocked also pulls together a unique all-star band they dub The Stowaways. This year's Stowaways are to include Oli Herbert (All That Remains), Frank Bello (Anthrax), Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal (former Guns N' Roses), Geoff Tate (former Queensryche), Rob Caggiano (Volbeat, former Anthrax), among many others.

Onboard activities are to include photo meet and greets with band members, artist Q&A sessions, trivia challenges, game shows, parties, contests and more. Nightly themes, comedy performers, tattoo artists, magicians and even more activity details have been slowly leaking out via ShipRocked's official Facebook page this week.

Despite being sold out, ShipRocked has a waiting list you can join in the case of cabin cancellations between now and cruise time. There is also a Cabin Mate Search site for single guests looking for an open bed in already booked cabins.
