There’s a moment on Shiprocked, when you’re standing on the pool deck surrounded by like minded people, and the future announcement is made… Then you cruise and rock out for the week, and as you disembark, all you can do is wait for token day to rebook for the following year. It’s a never-ending circle that Shiprockers have learned to live with.

Within days of booking being open, just as years previous, Shiprocked was SOLD OUT again, and no one had a clue who was playing…. This is how things go when you become a “Shiprocker”. You book and wait for the lineup to drop. As time goes on, people get restless and push the limits on harassing the powers that be, and we all get the same response… #soon. It’s become somewhat of a joke within the community because sometimes #soon isn’t soon enough. After plenty of hints, the day has finally come. The initial lineup for Shiprocked 2025 has dropped, and the Captain really isn’t playing games this year.

With a vintage 80’s theme sailing out of Miami, Florida to Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Half Moon Cay, Bahamas speculation ran rampant with ideas of who might be on the boat. Today, we learned that Australian metalcore group Parkway Drive will once again headline Shiprocked. Pyro, and crowd insanity aside, one of the greatest shows on the deck stage has been Parkway Drive. The sheer level of musicality that comes from them is a sight to behold. Hollywood Undead, who has been a long-time request to be onboard finally makes an appearance, as well as fan favorites Nothing More returning for their 4th time.

The music lineup for ShipRocked 2025 so far includes: Parkway Drive, Hollywood Undead, Nothing More and The Struts, as well as 10 Years, Atreyu, Austin Meade, Buckcherry, Calva Louise, Des Rocs, Devour The Day, Diamante, Flat Black, The Ghost Inside, GHØSTKID, Goodbye June, Jigsaw Youth, Kid Kapichi, Nevertel, Oxymorrons, Plush, P.O.D., Silly Goose, SpiritWorld and more to be added as time goes on.

ShipRocked will also feature exclusive performances by ShipRockers’ favorite all-star band The Stowaways, which have yet to be announced. While the cruise is already sold out, a waiting list is available for people to join in case Shiprocked seems like something you might be interested in.
