Carnival Victory

Ladies and Gentlemen! Boys and Girls! Freaks, Geeks, and Weirdos of all ages! It’s time to roll up for our annual rock & roll revue! That’s right, it’s The Greatest Vacation On Earth, under the ShipRocked Big Top!

For our 8th anniversary, we’re going bigger and better than ever before, upgrading our three-ringed floating circus to deliver a true rockstar experience. We’ll be taking our family freak-show and musical marvels onboard a new luxe abode, Carnival’s Victory, sailing January 16-20, 2017, from the Magic City of Miami to stunning Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos Islands.

So step right up, be at your Carney best, then prepare for four fun-filled days on the high seas and the most spectacular sideshow the world has ever seen! Your Masters of Ceremony have assembled a hard rocking congress of wonders for 2017’s voyage: a circus, or should we say a CarnEVIL, of wall-to-wall performances, parties, games, events and bad decision opportunities all with that one-of-a-kind Shiprocked spirit of debauchery and fun. So come one, come all, come tall and come small, step up, step in and let the freak show begin!

Mid-January temperatures in the Bahamas, British West Indies and Grand Turk range from an average low of 65-70 degrees to an average high of 80-85 degrees. We suggest you pack lightweight, “resort casual” clothing — a few swimsuits, flip-flops, sandals or deck shoes for around the pool area, sneakers, walking shoes or hiking boots for shore trips, etc. If you like to exercise or participate in sports, bring any fitness clothing and footwear you may need. T-shirts, shorts, and/or bare feet are not permitted in the main dining rooms.

Some of the shows and activities will be taking place outdoors, and there is always the chance of it being windy, cool or even a little wet. So we suggest also packing some warmer clothing and light rain gear just to be on the safe side (we’ll also have some hoodies and long-sleeve shirts available for you in the Gift Shop!). Be sure to bring your cameras, batteries, chargers, and enough film or memory cards to capture the entire event. And don’t forget ear plugs for the young ones (or yourself), sunscreen and lip balm.

We STRONGLY recommend that you hand-carry all your travel documents (passports, birth certificates, airline tickets, etc.) medications, jewelry and any other personal items that you may need in a separate carry-on bag. You should not put these items into checked luggage as they could become lost and prevent you from boarding the ship. Also, your luggage may take a few hours before it is delivered to your cabin.

On the last evening of your cruise your luggage will be collected for disembarkation the following morning. So you may want to pack a separate overnight bag to accommodate your last evenings’ clothes and sundries to carry off the ship with you.

All of our artists plan to join you for the full cruise. However, there may be some cases where an artist needs to join us during the cruise or depart early due to a scheduling conflict or other personal commitment.

Most of our artists are scheduled to perform two shows each during the cruise.

Guests will have the opportunity to see all of our artists perform at least once, and in many cases will be able to see artists perform twice. Similar to a festival, performances will take place on multiple stages throuought the ship at varying times, with some performances taking place in venues where capacity is limited. Reserved seating/areas will be available for VIP Guests, otherwise all shows are general admission.

Lines for each meet and greet session will start to form 30-minutes prior to each session. Please note that due to the number of ShipRocked performers and guests, lines may need to be cut, subject to the limited time available. Additionally, artists will not be able to sign autographs during the meet and greet sessions.

Past cruises have included photo meet and greets, Q&A sessions, drum and guitar clinics, wine tastings, contests, game shows and more!

We’ll be taking our family freak-show and musical marvels onboard a new luxe abode, Carnival’s Victory, sailing January 16-20, 2017, from the Magic City of Miami to stunning Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos Islands.

So step right up, be at your Carney best, then prepare for four fun-filled days on the high seas and the most spectacular sideshow the world has ever seen! Your Masters of Ceremony have assembled a hard rocking congress of wonders for 2017’s voyage: a circus, or should we say a CarnEVIL, of wall-to-wall performances, parties, games, events and bad decision opportunities all with that one-of-a-kind Shiprocked spirit of debauchery and fun. So come one, come all, come tall and come small, step up, step in and let the freak show begin!

All of our artists plan to join you for the full cruise. However, there may be some cases where a performer needs to depart early or join us sometime during the cruise due to a scheduling conflict or other personal commitment.

ShipRocked does not accept ‘unsolicited material’ from artists and bands. We will always be researching and looking for new talent, but this will be done internally and not accepted from outside sources. Thank you for your understanding.

There is not a specific dress code onboard ShipRrocked, and there is no “formal night,” so formal attire is not required.  However, shirts, bathing suit cover ups and footwear (including flip-flops) must be worn at all times in the Lido Restaurant (buffet). We also request that guests refrain from wearing flip-flops or bathing suit attire in the main dining rooms.  Nudity is not allowed in public spaces throughout the ship.

For your convenience, all shipboard expenses are charged to Carnival’s onboard credit program, Sail & Sign. This allows you to charge all purchases and gratuities directly to your personal onboard account for convenience throughout the cruise. Your Sail & Sign Card must be utilized for all money transactions on board, including event and artist merchandise, as cash will not be an accepted form of payment.

On the first day of the cruise, you will establish your method of payment with a credit card (Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, Diners Club®), travelers checks or cash. If you choose to settle your account with cash, a deposit of $100 will be required in advance. Carnival does not recommend the use of a debit card as payment for your onboard folio. However, if you choose to pay with a debit card, please be advised that Carnival obtains pre-authorization of $100 which some banks may hold for up to 30 days.

Guest Services can provide you with a balance update at any time throughout the cruise. In addition, you can view their balance update at a Sail & Sign Kiosk or on your stateroom interactive television.  On the final morning of the cruise, a statement detailing all purchases made with the Sail & Sign card will be delivered to your stateroom.

For additional information about Carnvial’s Sail & Sign program, click here.

 

Gratuities of $12.00 per person, per day will be charged to your onboard spending account, for the services of your cabin stewards, dining room and other ship staff.

Guests should not feel obliged to offer a gratuity for good service. However, all of our staff are encouraged to “go the extra mile,” and so they are permitted to accept cash gratuities entirely at the discretion of our guests who wish to acknowledge particular staff members for exceptional or outstanding service. In other words, there is genuinely no need to tip but you should feel free to do so if you have a desire to acknowledge particular individuals.

 

Also, certain staff positions provide service on an individual basis to only some guests, and we encourage those guests to acknowledge good service from these staff members with appropriate gratuities. For beverage purchases, an automatic 15% gratuity will be added to the bill and the charges will be applied directly to the guest’s Sail & Sign account.  For guests purchasing spa treatments the recommended gratuity is 18 percent. Room Service staff may be tipped as service is rendered.

There are multiple complimentary dining options, from three-course dining in the main dining room, to endless buffets with action stations, room service, and there is even 24/7 pizza!  During ShipRocked, the ship will offer open-seating dining in the main dining restaurant, with individual menus. Additional details and dining hours will be available once onboard.
