(12:25 p.m. EDT) -- From classic rock to heavy metal, three new theme cruises will give rock 'n' roll fans more opportunities to head-bang with their favorite legends at sea.

The Zombies, Jefferson Starship, Dave Mason and other stars will headline the five-night Moody Blues cruise, which kicks off January 2 on Celebrity Eclipse, and includes stops in Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Ahead of the cruise, fans also have an opportunity to ring in the New Year with a free classic rock concert in Miami.

On the Cruise to the Edge sailing, the band Yes will be joined by Marillion, Steve Hackett and other progressive rock stars for five nights beginning February 3. The cruise, which takes place on Brilliance of the Seas, will visit Belize and Costa Maya roundtrip from Tampa.

From February 11 to 16, fans can enjoy performances by Tesla, Queensryche, Lita Ford and more on the Monsters of Rock cruise. Sailing roundtrip from Miami, the cruise on Navigator of the Seas will call at Jamaica and Royal Caribbean's private island, Labadee.

While a full lineup of activities is still in the works, passengers can expect concerts throughout each cruise, a variety of themed games, and opportunities to meet the stars.
