Guns, Bruce Kulick, All Hands on Deck Super Jam featuring Lita Ford & Friends, George Lynch and the Electric Freedom, Heart by Heart, The Big Deal, and Baron. Week two will see Kiss joined by Black Label Society, Buckcherry, Bruce Kulick, All Hands on Deck Super Jam featuring Sebastian Bach & Friends, Stryper, Vixen, Plush, The Wild Things, and Micky James. All Kiss Kruisers will receive signature engraved commemorative gifts and take part in two on-board activities with Kiss as well as two on-board activities with each individual member of the band. As if all that weren’t enough, The Kiss Kruise XI will include The Kiss Expo (showcasing rare memorabilia), autograph sessions with the supporting artists, theme night costume parties, and much more. Guests who book on both sailings will receive an exclusive laminate, a poster signed by Kiss, happy hour and group photos with Kiss, and an exclusive Kiss Kruise XI two-timer t-shirt.

Norwegian Jewel will provide everything needed to make this year’s Kiss Kruise XI the best cruise vacation ever, with bars at almost every corner, delicious dining options, the Pool Deck with multiple hot tubs, the Jewel Club Casino, Mandara Spa, Body Waves Fitness Center, Sports Court, the Thermal Suite, and more.
