||DUTCH MICHAELS' GIG OF THE WEEK
MONSTERS OF ROCK CRUISE
Fort Lauderdale, The Bahamas, Key West
Saturday 25th to Tuesday 28th February 2012
You'd think when a luxury cruise in February, with a bunch of bands from the 80s era was announced, that you'd be hard pushed to sell the cabins reserved, right? Well you're wrong.
Initially the organisers only chartered half of the boat, and very quickly realised that the desire for such an event far outweighed their expectations.

So it wasn't long until they went head-on into the unknown and upped capacity to the entire ship. The result has proved fruitful, with only a handful of cabins available as we write this.
The organisers posted recently that over a third of sales are from international travellers, with a lot going over from Europe. So maybe this will prove to the people that put on these floating festivals in the US, that it's worth bringing that concept to this side of the pond.
So as the hoards of fans from around the world prepare for what is likely to be the most hedonistic weekend of their life, check out what you're missing by clicking here.
And remember to check back here soon, as MetalTalk.net have got two people on board to report on what it's like to relive the sunset strip era in the Bahamas.
