No other party cruise in Asia is wilder, crazier and flashier than IT'S THE SHIP which returns this year on the luxurious Royal Caribbean International cruiseliner. If you have heard about how the ones held in previous years were off the hooks, IT'S THE SHIP 2016 will make them seem like wading in a kiddy pool. This year, party revelers will dive head-on into a bigger and splashier EDM festival cruise featuring more than 60 acts from around the world with internationally renowned artists such as Knife Party, Andrew Rayel, Far East Movement, Sander Van Doorn, Joel Fletcher, Marlo and more.
Who else to better host the hardcore party island on water than the King of Baywatch, none other than David Hasselhoff himself who will helm the party decks and teach revelers how to get down the Hoff style.
IT'S THE SHIP 2016 will set sail on November 4 from Singapore to Penang, and back to Singapore again on November 7. It is a four-day three-night non-stop, round-the-clock, neverending party of epic proportions that is Asia's largest and the world's second biggest EDM festival-cruise. It is expected to sell out rapidly as it has in editions of yesteryear, so if you want to hop on board this massive party ship that has made waves all over the world since its conceptualization, gather your party crew and book up the cabins.
Cabin prices start from US$588 per person and up. The prices include all meals, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, 24-hour room service with a gourmet fare in the formal dining rooms and casual outdoor grill. Non-cabonated beverages such as water, tea, coffee, juices and milk are complimentary. Everyone is welcomed to use most of the ship's myriad of well-stocked facilities including the casino, swimming pools, whirpools, rock-climbing wall, ice-skating rink, and the gym.
IT'S THE SHIP 2016 will see a tweak in its program with the introduction of exciting themed nights on multiple stages. On the first night, all you party people will be able to revel in the pumping beats laid down by the talented pool of Australian DJs of Lucky Ent, who will be hosting the “Get Lucky” stage at the Hot Tub Time Machine featuring Kate Foxx, Joel Fletcher, Mashd N Kutcher, Some Blonde, Brooklyn and Lucille Croft.
To mark IT'S THE SHIP's debut of Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano's, the charismatic Dutch duo will present their concept show, Sexy by Nature, for the very first time in Asia.
The final night of IT'S THE SHIP 2016 will be one of the greatest parties you will ever experience in your lifetime with some of the EDM giants like Armada Night, Andrew Rayel, Marlo, David Gravell, Khomha, and Ben Gold spinning the shit out of their turntables to bring out the animal in you. It will be a party of titanium and steel, and so legendary that you will tell of its fond memories to your grand kids with a tear in your eye in the distant future. But forget about the future and revere in the present – right now, we party with every fragment of our youth.
“We believe that we have put together a solid, diverse and multi-genre line-up this year. With IT'S THE SHIP going into its third year, we wanted to refresh the customer journey by bringing acts whom we think will help us create the perfect engagement with the fans on board. But in true Livecape fashion, we still have a couple more things up our sleeves to further enhance the IT'S THE SHIP experience so we're excited to see how these elements will come together to provide a one of a kind adventure for our returning shipmates and new ones.” – Muhammad Iqbal, CEO of The Livescape Group (organizer of IT'S THE SHIP).
Last year's festival saw some of the world's biggest EDM headliners, to the likes of Kaskade, Showtek, Ferry Corsten, Carnage, Headhunterz, Will Sparks, and Peking Duk, joining over 50 other international and regional acts on the roster.
