Rocking the Waves
As festival mania continues to sweep across the UK, and cruise holidays get ever more popular, one enterprising company has come up with a classic combination.
A luxury cruise to iconic UK destinations combined with a Rock music festival on-board with some of music's greatest performers.
Cruiseco have been successfully running music cruises or festivals at sea for the past seven years and now they are bringing their unique themed cruises to the British market with the Rock the Boat 2017 cruise setting sail from the Port of Tyne in North East England on 2-9 September.
Joe Lavers, National Sales Manager, Cruiseco, said: "Rock the Boat is a really exciting opportunity to set sail with the legendary Suzi Quatro, The Troggs, The Yardbirds and many more music legends from the Rock and Roll hall of fame.
"If the idea of standing in a field, packing the wellies and camping isn't for you, our Rock the Boat cruise provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy luxury accommodation, five star cuisine and seven days of world-class live music, not to mention cruising around the British Isles on-board the impressive Cruise & Maritime Voyages flagship Magellan."
Rock the Boat 2017 sees headline acts performing every night while you slowly cruise from Newcastle visiting Aberdeen, Isle of Skye, Liverpool (visit the Cavern Club home of the Beatles), Dublin and Invergordon. Even a day at sea provides the opportunity to meet all of the artists performing on the cruise and get autographed memorabilia signed or pose for a selfie.
Artists taking up residence on-board also include The Manfreds, The Animals and Friends, Slade, Big Country, From the Jam and Rod Stewart and Bon Jovi tribute acts.
American glam rock singer and songwriter, Suzi Quatro, said: "I can't wait to perform on Rock the Boat, the ship looks amazing and I'm really looking forward to rockin' out!"
Cruiseco offers a wide range of Worldwide Cruise Holidays. With offices based in Sydney, Australia and Warwick, England the music themed cruises have already been hugely successful in Australia with 9,000 people setting sail on a trip of a lifetime.
Nolan Gray, Business Development Director Port of Tyne, said: "Cruise travel and tourism is enjoying a tremendous resurgence as cruise operators continue to invest, innovate and expand fleet sizes to attract greater numbers of guests.
"Themed cruises offer unique experiences and we are really looking forward to welcoming guests on board Rock the Boat."
