How would you like to sail the Mexican Caribbean with Buckcherry, Hinder, Hellyeah and Sevendust? Then you need to book passage on “Shiprocked.”

Presented by ASK4 Entertainment, “Shiprocked 2011” happens on the good ship MSC Poesia as the Italy-registered ship sails out of Fort Lauderdale Nov. 14 for Mexican ports Costa Maya and Cozumel.

In addition to the bands listed above, the five-day cruise will also include In This Moment as main support as well as performances by Lynam, Broken Teeth and Rival Sons.  You also get all the amenities you’ve come to expect from cruise ships, including two pools, four Jacuzzis, sushi bar, state-of-the-art cardio gym and a wine tasting bar. Then there’s the Teatro Carlo Felice, a three-level Las Vegas-style theatre, something you definitely don’t see at your typical music festival.

“ShipRocked 2011 will be five days of wall-to-wall music, giving fans the rare opportunity to listen to and hang out with rock stars on a luxury cruise ship,” ASK4 Entertainment’s Alan Koenig said. “With the confirmed artists onboard, there’s enough music for whatever your heart rate can withstand.”
