A future MegaCruise has not yet been announced. Stay tuned.

From face-melting rock concerts to metal-themed parties, MegaCruise offers a bone-rattling getaway for headbangers and superfans of the band Megadeth. This heavy-metal music theme cruise is headlined and hosted by Megadeth, one of the most celebrated bands of the genre. Moreover, a lineup of influential bands from the metal music scene -- from Anthrax to Toothgrinder -- are scheduled to perform live concerts onboard.

General Info

Onboard Vibe

This is a heavy metal cruise. The vibe will be loud, flashy and exhilarating, with no shortage of epic guitar mega-riffs and maniacal performances. But not all of the concerts will be powerful thrash scenes. Several more intimate shows, such as morning coffee jams, are on the program.

Who Would Like It

Naturally, 'deth-heads will feel at home and among friends on this Megadeth-hosted sailing. But any serious metal fans will likely have a ball on a cruise set to be "thrashing through the Pacific" in 2019.
