In an age where heavy metal music cruises with high-profile line-ups are becoming a dime a dozen, it’s about time that true guitar pros, gearheads, theorists and hobbyists have a voyage of their own. Imagine a cruise exclusively planned for guitarists and instrumentalists, featuring performances and personal lessons from some of the greatest guitar gods on the planet.
Wake up – you are not dreaming! Prepare to learn from the masters on what fans have dubbed the “shredders cruise”: the 5-day/4-night Axes & Anchors cruise aboard the Carnival Victory, departing from Miami, FL on February 20th, stopping in Key West, FL and Nassau, Bahamas, and docking back in Miami on February 24th.
Witness blazing performances and take lessons directly from world-class rock and metal guitarists including Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society), Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Schenker (Scorpions, UFO, MSG), Alex Skolnick (Testament, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Tracii Guns (Guns N’ Roses, LA Guns), Dario Lorian (Black Label Society, Lizzy Borden), and more, all while sailing the high seas and visiting exotic locales.
Passengers can look forward to more than 40 performances, about a dozen free guitar workshops, as well as games and mingling with guitar gods, and more. In addition, the cruise plans on featuring gear demos and displays from some of today’s premier guitar and gear manufacturers.
World-renowned guitarist and Axes & Anchors performer Alex Skolnick states, “For generations now, the guitar has remained a source of creativity and symbol of coolness, defying strange musical trends, poor economic forecasts and more, all the while providing a sonic backdrop to good times and bad. I consider it a great honor to be joining Yngwie, Zakk and many other great players as part of Axes & Anchors, the very first cruise built around the guitar.”
Tickets for the cruise start at the competitive rate of just $899 per person (based on double occupancy), and include all accommodations, meals, concerts, open workshops, games, photo ops and more. Since the ship holds a limited number of passengers, early booking is highly encouraged. Sail less-expensively and get more heavy metal bang for your buck on the Axes & Anchors cruise!
