REPORT FROM THE KRUISE: DAY 3
KISSONLINE
Our ship, the Norwegian Pearl, docked in Mexico yesterday, and many KISS fans spent the day exploring Cozumel. It was fun to watch a sea of KISS t-shirts exiting the cruise terminal and spreading through town!

Back aboard the ship, it was "80s night." The KISS Navy put its own spin on dressing for the decade. Many Kruisers sported big hair, neon colors, and spandex to get into the spirit. This was also the night of KISS' second indoor show, so a lot of fans wore their 80s wear to the concert, which made for a fun-looking crowd!

And what a show it was. KISS kicked off the show with "Take Me," mixing up the setlist quite a bit from the previous night's concert. The song selections were often guided by fans shouting out song titles. KISS played "Makin' Love," "I Stole Your Love" and even a short version of "Magic Touch" after the audience began chanting it. Just as the previous audience was treated to five songs from "Monster," KISS performed these songs for for this enthusiastic audience too.

At the end of the show, after the encore had ended and the house lights came up, Eric returned to the stage and threw out every set of drumsticks he had near his kit. After he ran out of sticks, he and his tech began dismantling his drum kit, then autographing and distributing two cymbals and a cowbell to three young fans.

Today is the last full day of the Kruise! There are a lot of fun events scheduled, including a poolside band Q&A session with KISS and fans, Casino Night with Eric, a Belly Flop contest with Paul, and a pick-throwing contest pitting KISS Kruisers against long-range pick-throwing master... Gene! At night, a KISS costume contest promises to showcase hundreds of fans showing off their best face paint!

(Fun fact: All KISS Kruise guests received three gifts when they boarded the ship -- a KISS Kruise beach towel, a KISS Kruise poster autographed by all four members of the band... and a set of black-and-white KISS makeup, so everyone can rock the greasepaint tonight!)

REPORT FROM THE KRUISE: DAY 2
KISSONLINE

KISS Kruise: Day Two

The second day of the KISS Kruise II kicked off with several fan events. A t-shirt swap quickly turned into a swap-everything event, with fans trading memorabilia and guitar picks too, especially the new KISS Kruise II picks. It was fun to see how many different shirts fans made and brought from around the world.

As we continued sailing toward Cozumel, many KISS Kruisers spent the day relaxing on the many lounge chairs, couches and daybeds all around the ship, like the fans from Australia shown in this photo! The ship's bowling alley and lounge features 24-hour live KISS concerts playing on the TVs.

A tattoo artist applied permanent tattoos to fans in one of the lounges, including KISS Kruise-themed tattoo designs.

Last night, KISS also played the first of two indoor live shows in the ship's Stardust Theater. KISS opened the show with "Psycho Circus," launching into a setlist heavy on hits, classics, and many selections from the new Monster album! The band treated fans to the first-ever live performances of "Wall of Sound," "All For the Love of Rock and Roll," "Out of This World," and "Long Way Down," as well as "Hell or Hallelujah." After rocking the Kruisers all evening, KISS left the stage, then returned and encored with "Lick it Up" and "Rock And Roll All Nite."Confetti flew, the lights went down again, and the show was over. Or was it? KISS came back again and played even more songs, including "Nothin' To Lose" and "Deuce!" The guys were in fine form, happily interacting with fans and enjoying themselves onstage.

The day wrapped up with entertainment from a variety of bands around the ship, and an enthusiastic round of KISS Karaoke in the ship's lounge.

Tomorrow, the KISS Navy is scheduled to port at Cozumel.
