311 Caribbean Cruise 2012 Hits High Seas in May

​If there's any lesson County Grind learned this year, it's that 311 fans are among the most devoted around. Look no further than the vitriol unloaded on a writer who suggested that the 311 Pow Wow Festival at the Suwannee Music Park would be less than glorious. Lesson learned.

Moving on, it's no surprise that the masses are getting another opportunity to rally around their band on an enormous boat next year for the second-annual 311 Caribbean Cruise, which is set to sail from Miami to Half Moon Cay from May 10 to 14.

So far, the hosts are the only band solidified for the roster of the cruise and have two shows planned, but if last year's event is any indication -- Pepper, the Expendables, Pato Banton, the Movement, Full Service, and Trailer Park Ninjas all performed -- this could fill out quite a bit in the months to come.

Read more about the 311 bros and their experiences aboard the Carnival Destiny in a lengthy recap posted here. Just to get a sense of the scale of the thing:

Sixthman, which is also responsible for the Kiss Kruise and the Weezer Cruise, promises that next year's 311 Caribbean Cruise "will once again include lots of onboard games & activities (casino gambling, swimming, karaoke, 311 trivia contest, cannonball contest, bingo, movie screenings, late-night dance parties, etc.) and many excursions will be available on Half Moon Cay (snorkeling, horseback riding, jet-skiing, fishing, biking, etc.), making this an unparalleled fan experience for 311 fans from around the world."

Those who were on the cruise last year can hop on the presale until September 30, and booking begins October 10, and booking for first-timers begins October 18.
