What is The KISS Kruise V?

Attention, KISS Navy! For 40 years, KISS has been in the business of rock and roll, recruiting legions of fans from all walks of life and every corner of the globe. The time has come to take on your next mission which will surely be the most epic adventure the high seas have ever seen…The KISS Kruise V! We’ll be sailing from Miami to Jamaica, October 30 – November 3, 2015 aboard Norwegian Pearl, the central hub for all KISS maniacs worldwide.

We’re going back to the golden age when KISS rose to prominence, taking the world by storm. What better way to celebrate the rise of these rock legends than to watch KISS perform the very live album that launched them into greatness 40 years ago? Get ready to rock out to KISS playing their first gold album “Alive!” in its entirety. You read it right. KISS is playing “Alive!” from front to back during The KISS Kruise V indoor show.

Year five has promised to bring new surprises and drive you wild and crazy. Book a cabin during the pre-sale and receive a limited edition KISS Kruise V t-shirt mailed to your door before we sail. Halloween is in the grasp of the KISS Navy once again. You know the drill; SHOUT IT OUT LOUD on The KISS Kruise V!

What are the advantages of booking during the Pre-Sale?

In early February, we’re inviting all guests who book during the pre-sale to nominate rarely or never-played KISS songs that they would love to hear KISS play live on board. Once we have collected the nominations, we will ask all booked guests to vote for their favorite songs, and we will deliver the Navy’s orders to KISS. We have been speaking with the band over the holidays and they are really excited about getting their orders and rising to the occasion.

What is the performance schedule and how does admission work?

The exact performance schedule of all bands in The KISS Kruise V lineup will be released prior to the kruise. You can count on each band playing multiple shows occurring on multiple stages!

KISS will play an Unmasked Sail Away Show on the Pool Deck. This show is general admission for every guest to attend.

KISS Indoor Ticketed Shows

KISS will perform ALIVE! in it’s entirety - front to back - two nights in the Stardust Theater. Two guests in each cabin will receive KISS Indoor Show tickets for one night. Third/Fourth/Fifth guests in a cabin may purchase a ticket to one of the KISS Indoor Shows for $250. All other third/fourth/fifth guests will NOT have a ticket.

Also available for up to 2 guests per cabin is the option to forfeit your KISS Indoor Show ticket for $250 of onboard credit*. For those traveling with someone who might not be as passionate about KISS, select the “Ticket Forfeit” option in the seat selection step during booking.  This option is only available for reservations choosing less than 2 show tickets.

*All onboard credit will be applied by the second night of sailing, however, you will still need to put down some method of payment for purchases on the first night.

All other shows on board will be general admission, so you can come and go as you please.

May I purchase tickets to the other KISS Indoor Show?
No. There is a maximum of one show ticket available per person.

NEW! Update to the PIT Section
This year we have a new, easy and efficient entrance process for all guests who select a PIT ticket. Guests will be assigned a number prior to sailing based on their cabin booking date and time. Guests will be asked to arrive at the venue at specific time before the show (no need to arrive early), and everyone will be lined up in order based on their assigned number before entering the Stardust Theater. Once in the theater guests will choose their spot in the PIT. If you’ve flown Southwest Airlines, this will be similar to their boarding experience.

What is the Pre-Party?

The pre-party is a place for you to connect with other Kruisers the night before the cruise. We’re going to give you a hotel and pre-party that rocks…and floats!

Check-in on the Norwegian Pearl before 7:30pm Thursday, October 29th and we’ll set sail in the evening. What could be better than being out on the ocean with live music by supporting bands, a casino, and plenty of bar service for an extra night? We’ll come back to pick up any additional guests the next morning. As an added bonus, you’ll already be unpacked and settled, have FREE food, AND you’ll get to sleep in while others are boarding!

You can reserve your stateroom for the pre-party night for a flat rate based on room category and number of guests at the same time you make your stateroom reservation. Single travelers pay twice the double rate.‚Äč*

  Cost Per Person
  Double (2)  Triple (3)   Quad (4)    Quint (5)
Interior $125 $100 $88 N/A
Ocean View $175 $133 $113 N/A
Balcony & Suites $225 $167 $138 $120

 

  • The pre-party is only for guests sailing on KISS Kruise V in 2015.
  • KISS will not be in attendance at the pre-party.
  • Guests will stay in the same stateroom they reserve for the cruise.
  • The cost of the stateroom for the pre-party is determined by the number of guests in the stateroom during the cruise. For instance, if you have a triple occupancy stateroom for the cruise, you will pay the triple occupancy rate for the pre-party even if all three guests don't attend the pre-party.

How is the booking order determined during the pre-sale?

The KISS Kruise IV alumni will be given the first chance to book. This group was automatically assigned and emailed an Earliest Booking Time. Earliest Booking Times are assigned in order, sorted by most times on The KISS Kruise, then by order of booking last year. Note that Earliest Booking Times will be spread throughout several days so that we may provide you the best possible guest service experience as you make your reservation. You will have FEWER people in front of you this year, even if you have to wait longer for your Earliest Booking Time to become active.

Alumni that missed The KISS Kruise IV are next. This group must register for the pre-sale and booking order is determined by number of The KISS Kruise sailings, number of Sixthman events, most recent year, then by order of booking for their most recent The KISS Kruise.

New The KISS Kruise guests who register for the pre-sale are the final group to be included. This group is randomized before earliest booking times are assigned. Note that there will be multiple groups of new guests - those who sign up before the initial deadline and then those who sign up after.

Once the pre-sale ends, the general public will be able to book.

Please Note: Being a part of the pre-sale does not guarantee that cabins will be left for purchase when it’s your time to book.

What information will I need to book my stateroom?

Stateroom Selection: During booking you will select your desired stateroom category and occupancy, so check out the pricing page.  You will select your exact room assignment, so also check out the Norwegian Pearl’s deck plans on that page.

Sixthman Usernames:  You'll need to login with (or create) a Sixthman Username to book. If you've traveled with Sixthman previously or signed up for the The KISS Kruise V Pre-Sale you have a username.  Recover forgotten login credentials here, or contact us or try our live chat for immediate assistance.  If you or a guest needs a Sixthman Username you can create one while booking. 

Guest Permissions:  If you were a Lead Passenger on a prior event and are sailing with the same guests, your guests will be in a dropdown list for you to add to your stateroom.  If you're sailing with someone who has a Sixthman Username but has NOT sailed with you previously, have your guests login to their Sixthman profile and add your username to their 'Approved Lead Passengers' list in the 'Guest Permissions' section. They'll then be on the dropdown list for you while booking.

Naming Guests: You can add your guests later but fees may apply.  See "Can I make changes to my reservation?" here for more details.  You are obligated for the full cruise fare of the occupancy level you select during the reservation process even if you do not add guests to fill your entire stateroom.  If you wish to add guests beyond the capacity of the occupancy level you select during the reservation process you may do so based on availability for the additional cruise fare associated with the transaction.

Multiple Credit Card Payments: If you are paying with multiple credit cards, you will need all of the credit card numbers (with expiration date and card verification number) as well as the name and billing address for each card.

How do I let someone add me to their stateroom?

  • Trip Cancellation can cover terrorist events, a job layoff (if employed for 1 or more year) or jury duty.*
  • Assistance will be there if you lose medications or a passport, or need help canceling lost credit cards.


This coverage must be purchased before your final payment due date. Coverage for all benefits except trip cancellation will begin on the departure date. The trip cancellation benefit will begin at 12:01 AM on the day after Travel Insured receives your application. For pre-existing conditions to be covered you need to purchase Insurance within 21 days of your deposit (other restrictions apply).

Travel Insured also offers Cancel For Any Reason 50% Protection. The Cancel for Any Reason option is only available when specifically requested on the original application and the appropriate premium has been paid.

This benefit allows the insured to receive a refund of up to 50% of covered trip costs on reservations cancelled up to 48 hours prior to departure for any reason outside of the covered circumstances.

This is a summary only containing highlights of the plan.  Download an Insurance PDF for complete terms, conditions and exclusions that apply.  Please Note: Residents of Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Texas and Washington have separate Certificates of Insurance in compliance with state requirements.
