This has got to be the most unpleasant vacation ever. I love metal as much as the next guy, but being stuck on a ship with 2,000 of you loud, smelly fuckers is just not how I’m spending my holiday budget. Slayer shows are fun and all, but they don’t last four days, and I can come and go as I please.

Meet the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise, traveling January 2011 from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico and back. The surprisingly reasonably-priced cruise promises 40 metal bands playing on its deck, with Amon Amarth, Sodom and Sonata Arctica among those confirmed.

These types of cruises have been done before in Europe, but as far as we know it’s the first metal-themed cruise in the US.

What do you think, does 4 days of fun in the sun and awesome bands make for the best trip ever, or is it metal overload? Sound off in the comments!
