It’s back. Asia’s largest floating festival, It’s The Ship!, is returning for a second year of insane partying. If you haven’t snapped up your tickets already then you’d better be quick. Word on the street is they are well on their way to selling out.
We were lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the ship and get the inside scoop on everything from pop up parties to Playboy bunnies. One thing is for sure, this is going to be a four day extravaganza you do not want to miss.
For those of you who weren’t lucky enough to attend last years inaugural event, let us bring you up to speed with exactly what to expect from ‘It’s The Ship’. For 4 days and 3 nights you will sail to Langkawi and back again aboard the huge Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas cruise ship. Along the way you can expect epic parties, performances by international and regional acts, chilled out sundowners, an exclusive beach party, and above all else – a whole heap of fun. Think luxury vacation meets music festival.
2015’s event is set to be even more outrageous than last years’ maiden voyage. Firstly, the ship is bigger, better and double the size. Boasting 10 pools and jacuzzis, a 9000 sq ft casino, a climbing wall, a basketball court, a mini golf course, a cinema, huge dining rooms, a spa, numerous bars, a shopping arcade… I could go on. Trust us. There is so much to do you won’t have time to sleep.
Secondly, despite last years’ event being crowned by JUICE magazine as the ‘Most talked about event of 2014’, the team behind It’s The Ship have not rested on their laurels. If you thought 2014 was awesome, 2015 is set to be legendary.
Exclusive parties will be popping up around the ship over the course of the cruise, ensuring each day will bring a new surprise. The 6 hour beach party on tropical Langkawi is set to be a highlight of this years’ itinerary. Whilst the hotly anticipated Playboy party, complete with twelve authentic bunnies, is no doubt going to be the talk of the ship.
Thirdly, the international and regional acts lined up to entertain the 3,800 of you on board are awesome. Headlining this year are the likes of Kaskade, Showtek and Adventure Club, we can’t wait for the pool parties with this lot playing.
One of our favourite things about the ship is just how up close and personal you can get to the artists themselves, many of whom will be enjoying the cruise when they’re not busy entertaining you lot. Last years’ headliners, Basement Jaxx, even took to the mini golf course to have a quick round with fans in between sets. Keep your eyes peeled as you never know who you might bump into!
If you do decide you might need to sleep at some point, the comfortable cabins are great sanctuaries. Twelve room options are available with prices ranging from USD 588 – USD 2798 (per pax), you can go all out or save your cents for extra champagne whilst on board.
Due to set sail on the 20th November, we are busy counting down the days until we can set foot back on board and get the party started. Be sure to snap up a cabin quickly for what is certain to be an unforgettable festival.
