70000TONS OF METAL is The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise – 60
Metal Bands play 120 Shows for only 3000 Fans on one 154,000ton Cruise
Ship sailing from Florida to Jamaica on board the Independence of the
Seas, leaving from Port Everglades, FL on Thursday, February 4th 2016
and returning on Monday, February 8th.
Now in the Sixth year, the event is boasting its sixth consecutive
sellout – a testament to the brand’s staying power, innovation and
intense customer loyalty. Fans on 70000TONS OF METAL get unrestricted
festival access to all live shows on board, not just one show per band
with assigned seating based on which cabin category was booked.
Two full days at Sea and the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with
World Class artists on a floating luxury resort in the middle of the
Caribbean. This event truly has no comparison and since there are no
VIP areas it’s like everyone has a backstage pass!
