311 Joins the Cruise Craze March 3-7, 2011

For the most eclectic of music fans with a penchant for shuffleboard and swans made out of towels, 2011 already promises the Jam Cruise on January 4-11, the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise on January 24-28, the indie-rock Bruise Cruise on February 25-28, and the just-announced New Kids on the Block cruise on May 12-16.

Not to be left out (or conflict with an already busy schedule on the high seas), stoner funk-rap group 311 hijacks a Carnival Destiny cruise ship on March 3-7, 2011, sailing from Miami to Turks and Caicos. Pepper and DJ Soulman from Phunk Junkeez will also perform in the March 2011, AKA 3/11(!), celebration. As part of the festivities, which start at $818 per person, 311 plans to

take pictures with all guests (capacity 2,700) as they board the ship

and will entertain song requests ("Down" is a given, right?) for each of their three concerts during

the cruise. On August 18, presales begin here.
