The creator and producer of the festival cruise, Alan Koenig of ASK4 Entertainment has said the following about the first band additions for the cruise:

“Everyone likes to open their packages and get just what they asked for, so we try our best to book as many of the artists that we know our guests have on their wish lists, but also give them something they weren’t expecting that we know they’ll love.”

Koening is especially excited to welcome Falling In Reverse on board. He had the following to say about the band’s headline show:

“Falling In Reverse and their co-headliner, who we’ll announce in early June, have been heavily requested for a number of years, and we couldn’t be more excited for them to make their ShipRocked debut in January,” said Koenig. “In addition to the ‘big gifts’ we’ve got a number of amazing presents and stocking stuffers for our SR23 kids to enjoy, including several fan favorites and some incredible up-and-coming artists. It’s going to be a very Merry ShipRocked!”
