(1:35 p.m. GMT) -- Marella Cruises has announced the line up for its second annual Electric Sunsets sailing with nineties boy bands Five and 911 set to headline.
Bwitched, S Club Party and DJs Judge Jules and DJ Sash will also join the cruise -- departing from Newcastle on September 1, 2019 -- on Marella Explorer.
The three-night adults-only sailing will whisk passengers across the North Sea with calls in Ijmuiden in Holland and Zeebrugges (Bruges) in Belgium, before ending in Southampton on September 4.
Electric Sunsets will also feature a variety of nineties tribute acts, including Definitely Oasis, Spice Forever and The Stone Mondays.
Electric Sunsets Back to the 90s follows in the success of this year's eighties-themed sailing that saw Sarah Cox and Trevor Nelson headline.
Chris Hackney, Managing Director of Marella Cruises, commented: "We’re really excited about the Electric Sunsets lineup; the 90s were such an iconic era and we can’t wait to bring it back to life on our newest ship, Marella Explorer, with weekend party goers be able to reminisce on the perfect 90s voyage.
"Following the success of our 80s cruise earlier this year we decided to further our commitment to offering more choice to customers with our second music themed cruise. Our wide selection of dining venues, bars, lounges and fantastic themed entertainment will ensure there is something for every 90s fan onboard."
