Monsters of Rock Cruise 2023

APRIL 29, 2023 - MAY 05, 2023


Live out your 80s rock n’ roll fantasies in international waters with Faster Pussycat, Winger, Tesla and 40 other rockers

Pack your leather ensembles and bikinis for five nights of rock n’ roll paradise. Departing from Port Canaveral, FL, you’ll swim and snorkel at Sousa Beach in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic and bask in the sun at Labadee, a private resort owned by the Royal Caribbean and reserved for those of us who live for reverb. Sunbathing, drinking and exploring aren’t really why you’re here though— after all this is the Monsters of Rock Cruise. Concerts take place across two stages and wild performances by Great White, Saxon, Rose Tattoo and Doro are a rocker’s dream. Professional photographers will be there to capture your experience with many of the bands, and VIP guests will get special access to cocktail hours, photo sessions and venue entry.    

All meals at the Main Dining Hall, Windjammer, Cafe Promenade and the Dog House are included, but why not indulge in more than just hot dogs? While docked in Puerto Plata, take yourself on an adventure to try the authentic Dominican cuisine, And keep the late-night adrenaline pumping during your days at Labadee. The Private Isle of Labadee is home to crystal clear water, parasailing and kayaking. For a fast pace view of the resort, grab a helmet, strap on your harness and embrace your inner thrill seeker while riding the world’s longest overwater zipline.
