A metal fans dream to soak while you watch your favorite band.

Andy Piller, 70000TONS OF METAL’s Skipper states: “I want to make sure the intimacy between the bands and the fans does not change in our new environment. When we had 2000 cruisers we booked 40 bands. Now we will have 3000 cruisers which means we will be inviting 60 bands to perform!” Every Genre Of Metal! Something For Everyone!

70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, will set sail on Thursday, January 22nd, 2015 aboard the Royal Caribbean “Liberty Of The Seas” from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale near Miami, FL and will not return to the real world until Monday, January 26th, 2015
