Still Kruisin’: Rockin’ the High Seas on KISS Kruise VIII (Photos/Recap)

8AM October 31st, Halloween … The massive Norwegian Jade ship is docked in the port of Miami and the silence is deafening. There’ll be a new kind of “deafening” soon: the noisy “Rock & Roll All Nite and party every day” kind, as in a few hours passengers from 37 countries will embark on KISS Kruise VIII.

Organized by leading music cruise company Sixthman, this year’s KISS Kruise, slated for excursions in in Key West, Florida and Nassau, the Bahamas, draws a multi-generational array of members of the KISS NAVY from all corners of the globe: Russia to Brazil, France to Argentina, Spain to England, Germany to The Netherlands, Japan to the USA and more.

The first few hundred passengers begin to converge on the port and excitement begins to build. It’s like a meeting of the rock and roll United Nations — men, women and children of all ages and nationalities, most looking like they stepped out of a KISS department store, resplendent in new and vintage KISS t-shirts, hats, and sweatpants, many showing off some skin emblazoned with colorful KISS tattoos. High fives and hearty hugs are commonplace as the passengers walk onto the ship ready for another trip of a lifetime (or the first, for KISS fans taking their maiden voyage with the Hottest Band in the Land).

This isn’t just a rite of passage, oceanic and lifestyle-wise, to hang out and experience KISS in intimate setting with 2300+ members of your closest friends, but a tight bond of family and renewal of friendships crossing language barriers. “I’ve been on every KISS Kruise since they started putting this yearly event on,” one fan observes. “I wouldn’t miss it for the world. I save my money up all year so I can swing it — I’ve also taken on a second night job at as a security guard at Walmart for a few months so I’m able to afford to come each year and also buy as much KISS swag as possible. Year in, year out, it’s the highlight of my year!”



Sounds like Gaston Lopez has some great friends! They threw him a KISS farewell party before he moved from Chile to Canada! So awesome!
