Quite simply, the Norwegian Jewel will become the home of artists and fans, interacting in many different ways throughout the five-night voyage.

“This interactive experience affords you a variety of events and activities that will put you front and center with metal icons that have been an integral part of your life. From Artist Photo Experiences to Intimate Morning Coffee Jams, Music Clinics to Fan/Artist Sporting Competitions and more, there’s always a way to get up close and personal with your favorite artists.

“You might happen to bump into one of your faves at one of the Jewel’s many watering holes, or possibly share a moment at the Charity Auction…this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience..

“Megacruise is the ultimate Heavy Metal Experience, where music and cruising combine for the vacation of a lifetime!”
