KISS is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973. Easily identified by its members' face paint and flamboyant stage outfits, the group rose to prominence in the mid to late 1970s on the basis of their elaborate live performances, which featured fire breathing, blood spitting, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kits and pyrotechnics. KISS has been awarded 24 gold albums to date. The band has sold more than 40 million albums in the United States, of which 19 million have been certified by the RIAA, and their worldwide sales exceeds 100 million albums.

The KISS Kruise V “1975’s Alive!” To Set Sail Halloween 2015
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees set to perform groundbreaking album “Alive!” in its entirety on fifth annual sailing of The KISS Kruise.
Rock and roll juggernauts KISS are joining forces once again with Sixthman, the industry leader of festivals at sea, to bring you The KISS Kruise V: 1975’s Alive! The sold out Kruise will set sail on October 30th and return November 3th with kruisers traveling from Miami, FL to Ochos Rios, Jamaica aboard Norwegian Pearl.
1975 was such a pivotal and trailblazing year in “KISStory”, it’s only fitting that guests sailing on The KISS Kruise V can expect to find themselves immersed in the golden age of the rock legends’ rise to prominence. The band is set to play their first gold wining record, “Alive!”, released in 1975, to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the highly successful live album. Another treat for the mega KISS fans on board will be watching their rock heroes play the Alive set in vintage costumes from this revolutionary era.
For decades, fans have come to expect KISS to start things off with a bang, and the fifth voyage of this long running event will be no different. For the first time in The KISS Kruise history, KISS will play their unmasked opening sail away show electric, and riddled with rarely preformed deep cuts. Guests were each asked to submit the top three songs they’d love KISS to play during the Kruise, making the event just as guest interactive at its always been. Kruisers can also look forward to not only live performances, but also engaging activities with each of the KISS members, entertaining theme nights, and various keepsakes to remember the event, including a photo taken with the band on board.
Norwegian Pearl will travel to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, which offers a plethora of activities for travelers of all walks. Guests can stroll along the beach, take a hike through one of the many nature trails, enjoy a variety of local cuisine, shopping, and several other eclectic experiences. A destination of her own, Norwegian Pearl offers guests access to 13 bars and lounges, 19 dining experiences, one outdoor pool, hot tubs, and spa treatments that will soothe the most hardened minds and bodies. Guests aren’t limited to just live music as more activities can be found throughout the ship. Play a game of soccer or basketball on the sport court, bowl a few frames at the onboard lanes, or try your luck with a few hands at The Pearl Club Casino.
Forthcoming announcements are scheduled to follow with more shows, contest additions, activity details, and special guest artists to round out this rockin’ event!
