Carnival Sensation

We’re going to add some old skool beats to your ultimate vacation break, transforming your wack daily life into a gangsta’s paradise and VIP-worthy Caribbean holiday!

Featuring over a dozen of the most iconic names in 90s Hip-Hop and R&B, the boat will shoop ba-doop with live performances of hit jamz all week long!

You’ll re-live your favorite party mix-tape hits live and in-person over 4-days on the sun drenched deck of a luxurious ship that will make you exclaim “OMG Becky, look at that boat!”  Boasting a world-class spa, casino, 24-hour dining, and bars stocked full of cold medina, the Sensation has all the amenities you’ll need to stay pampered and pumped to dance all week long!

If that’s not enough to give you the vapors, you’ll also have the opportunity to mingle on-board with the artists and DJs during a number of interactive events and activities, photo meet and greets, theme nights, and more! No diggity no doubt!

All of our artists plan to join you for the full cruise. However, there may be some cases where an artist needs to join us during the cruise or depart early due to a scheduling conflict or other personal commitment.

Most of our artists are scheduled to perform two shows each during the cruise.

Guests will have the opportunity to see all of our artists perform at least once, and in many cases will be able to see artists perform twice. Similar to a festival, performances will take place on multiple stages throuought the ship at varying times, with some performances taking place in venues where capacity is limited. All shows are general admission.

Concerts will take place throughout the ship on multiple stages from the time you get on until you get off! We’ll post the complete jam-packed schedule a few weeks prior to the cruise… so stay tuned!

There will be multiple photo-only meet and greets scheduled throughout the cruise, with most of our performers participating. Ship-Hop’s photographers will be taking all of the meet and greet photos for you, and the photos will be posted on our Facebook and Flickr pages following the cruise so you can share, download and print them!

Lines for each meet and greet session will begin to form 30-minutes prior to each session. Please note that due to the number of Ship-Hop performers and guests, lines may need to be cut, subject to the limited time available. Additionally, artists will not be able to sign autographs during the meet and greet sessions.

One of the best things about Ship-Hop (besides all of the dope live performances) is the opportunity to see and interact with your favorite artists in such a unique environment. Throughout the cruise we’ll have a number of interactive Events and Activities, like photo meet and greets, Q&A sessions, wine tastings, poolside games, contests, game shows and more! We’ll also have a few wild Theme Nights so you can dress up and let your freak flags fly!  As we confirm the details, we’ll post them on the website and send out emails with all the info!

Guests are permitted to take personal photos using fixed-lens cameras everywhere onboard the cruise. However, please refrain from flash photography in all indoor concert venues. The use of detachable lens cameras (DSLR, other professional cameras, etc.), tablets (iPads, etc.), camera and video sticks, and any video or audio recording devices, will not be permitted during shows. Remote controlled photo/video drones are strictly prohibited.

We request all guests be respectful of our performers’ personal space and time between shows, and refrain from photo and autograph requests. They, like you, have been invited onboard to relax and enjoy themselves with their friends and family, during their vacation time on the cruise. We will have several photo meet and greets with the artists scheduled for the opportunity to have your photo taken with them. We, and they, appreciate your cooperation!

Yes. A Variety of Ship-Hop event merchandise, as well as merchandise from our performers will be available onboard in multiple locations. Merchandise may be purchased using your personal credit card or cash. You will not be able to purchase merchandise using your onboard spending account.
