The FULL METAL CRUISE starts in Hamburg and enters the harbors of Southampton (UK), Le Havre (F) and Amsterdam (NL). After 7 days full of sea & relaxing and Metal & party feeling, the ship then returns to Hamburg with a special show at the harbor anniversary fest.
Whilst there will be big fireworks and a special show on board, the cruise will return to the harbor and this will be one of the many things leading to a great overall experience for every metal-sailor!
The special features of this Metal Cruise:
- Drinks and food are included
- No difficult travelling to the starting point
- Hamburg, the gateway to the world!
- Concerts take place onboard and onshore
- Interesting shore excursions for every metal-heart
More than 20 high-quality bands from the Metal and Rock scene will perform on 3 stages at the Mein Schiff 1. Certainly there will be everything which provides you with festival fun onboard: Meet & Greets, Metal Karaoke, movie nights, metal comedy, workshops for musicians and much more.
In the many lounges onboard, the metalheads can party and meet the artists – nowhere else it is possible to have such a direct connection to the musicians.
Furthermore, Metalheads can book shore excursions with more concerts at the harbors. The line up of the shows at the seaports and onboard of the cruise will be announced soon. You can find more information about this Heavy Metal Cruise at the link below.
"Heavy and hard music and a cruise don’t conflict with each other", says Wacken boss Thomas Jensen. "With the FULL METAL CRUISE we want to bring a real Metal festival to the sea!"
You can purchase your FULL METAL CRUISE ticket from 18th of July on!
On this seven days FULL METAL CRUISE, the food and drinks are included alongside with the floating festival program: drinks such as beer, wine and softdrinks are free of charge at all times, from 18 o´clock on also most of the spirituous beverages and cocktails will be for free. In addition, there is no need to pay for the food in most of the restaurants onboard.
