Monsters Of Rock Cruise 2018 on sale now




MIAMI, Florida —   The waiting is over and the time is FINALLY here…the 2018 Monsters of Rock Cruise is ready to go on sale, beginning TODAY at 12 noon Eastern!  

If you’ve never attended, now is the time to become a part of the greatest floating Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Festival to ever sail the seven seas! Get ready…the Monsters of Rock Cruise awaits you!

This year’s MORC has more bands, more fun than any past cruise and is on track to sell out faster than any cruise in our history!


The Navigator of the Seas is unlike any ship we’ve experienced before on the Monsters of Rock Cruise. This Voyager Class ship features the Royal Promenade, considered the center and heart of the ship. Spanning the length of Deck 5, this naturally lit, four-story boardwalk allows guests to stroll into restaurants and coffee bars, stop in to do some shopping and of course, grab a drink before the next show. Not to mention, this vibrant and exciting hub will connect MOR Cruisers to many of our Heavy Metal Venues, including, not one, but Two Indoor Main Concert Venues to listen to the biggest and baddest MORC lineup in history!

These are the cruise industry’s first “Virtual Balcony” cabins… interior cabins featuring floor-to-ceiling HD display screens that give occupants real-time views of the sights outside (provided by cameras mounted on the ship’s exterior). You get to control the volume on the display, allowing you to pipe in the natural sounds associated with the views.  It’s also great for light sleepers who prefer some white noise while dozing.  The view you get in your cabin depends on which wall the 80-inch HD screen is affixed. If you face the front of the ship to see your “balcony,” you are getting the view from the high-quality digital camera mounted on the bridge. Facing back, you get the view of the ship’s wake from the camera mounted on the rear of the ship. Curtains can be drawn to conceal the HD screen. The balcony view includes a virtual railing, too.


Labadee is the ultimate private destination for MORC Cruisersand is exclusive to Royal Caribbean guests! 

Adventure, exploration and relaxation are just the beginning of what Labadee has to offer.  Hang with MORC friends at one of the many bars, swim in pristine waters and don’t miss the complimentary lunch provided to keep up the blood sugar…Welcome to Paradise!

LOOKING FOR A THRILL?…strap on a helmet and harness, and soar 500 feet down on the Dragon’s Breath Flight Line, the World’s longest zip line over water. Want more action?  Check out the Wave Jet Rides, Parasailing, Snorkel Safaris, Kayak Tours, Basketball, Soccer and much more!*

*Nominal fees may apply.

MORC is headed to Falmouth, Jamaica…It’s where Jamaica’s Best Adventures Converge!

Situated on Jamaica’s North coast between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Falmouth has something for all travelers.  MORC Cruisers…don’t miss Dunn’s River Falls, one of the most incredible natural wonders in the world and a shore excursion unlike any other! This series of lush, tropical waterfalls cascade over terraced natural stairs as you take the picturesque hike all the way to the Caribbean Sea! Enjoy the journey, taking breaks to swim in the small lagoons and grottos as you ascend the vertical sections of the falls.

Wrap up your hike with a dip in the Caribbean Sea or enjoy a myriad of activities, such as windsurfing, kayaking, horseback riding, river raft rides or sightseeing. If the falls were all the adventure you can handle…not to worry.  Simply grab the perfect spot on the beach, relax with your 
favorite beverage and take in the panoramic ocean views.
