The Independence of the Seas from Royal Caribbean is one of the biggest, fastest and most luxurious passenger vessels in service today. It is served by a crew of 1,360 on 15 decks. With a gross tonnage of 154,407, it can truly be said that the rock-themed benefit voyage will be a “heavy” experience for both bands and fans. The ship, almost as long as four football fields, cruises at 21.6 knots and is scheduled for a port stop in Costa Maya, Mexico.

What Passengers Think

We have been on RLC since day 1, we were a little skeptical about doing this, we had never cruised before! We met friends that are now like family, the music has always been over the top! We have never had a bad experience, this is just beautifully done! We will be going as long as you will be doing this cruise!!!


Once again NAHA put on an awesome time. Improved deck stage , fantastic line up, saw more shows compared to cruises 2 and 3 and even had some nice sit down dinners in the dining room with the strategic scheduling. If you like classic rock music and want to see lots of it with friendly people this is the cruise to be on. It is also for a great cause!
