Performances were held on the large outdoor Monster Energy Deck Stage, in the luxurious Carlo Felice Theater and the more intimate Zebra and Pigalle Lounges.

For the fourth year in a row, the ShipRocked held an onboard charity auction benefitting Cancer Sucks (, a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding innovative medical research and finding a cure for cancer. This year, the auction–which featured items including one-of-a-kind rock memorabilia from current and past ShipRocked bands–raised an unprecedented $70,000.

The media raved about their experiences on ShipRocked. Liz Ramanand of (December 3, 2012) called ShipRocked “the most hard-rocking adventure at sea.” She continued, “The coolest cruise of the year kicked off with an acoustic set by none other than Godsmack. The gig sounded impeccable…the very raw and intimate setting was truly captivating – Godsmack, outside, at night, performing acoustically, on a ship, how could things get any better?”

Describing the diverse performance settings on the ship, Liz noted, “Carlo Felice Theater is an elegant venue on the ship that holds a little over 1,000 people with a lovely purple décor and comfortable seats – Five Finger Death Punch ripped it to shreds. Their rabid fans had the ship rocking, literally, as they bounced through FFDP anthems which could be heard throughout the 15 decks of the boat.”
