What is The KISS Kruise IV?
KISS and Sixthman together can’t be stopped. The inaugural KISS Kruise voyage united the KISS Navy to sail across the open seas. The second adventure proved the strength of the KISS Navy once again, and The KISS Kruise III rocked the boat with such intensity that the sea begged for mercy! It's time to reunite for the pen-ultimate KISS Kruise IV "Dessed to Kill" where we will rock harder than ever as we navigate towards the shores of adventure!
This kruise is so hot, it’s even Hot in the Shade! KISS Navy owns Halloween, and this year it’s no different. The Norwegian Pearl is set to host the best Hallows’ Eve celebration in the world. We’re sailing from October 31st – November 4th, so grab your face paint, your krazy costumes, your sunscreen and join us on board where we rock n roll all night and party everyday!
KISS NAVY, WE WANT YOU!
What is the Pre-Party?

The port is approximately 8 miles (25 minutes) from the Miami International Airport, and 25 miles (45 minutes) from the Fort Lauderdale International Airport. Please allow extra time for traffic. It is recommended that you book your flight to land in Miami no later than 2:00pm and to land in Ft. Lauderdale no later than 1:00pm. Everyone MUST be on board by 7:30pm, as we will set sail that evening.

All guests attending the pre-party must attend a mandatory safety drill when you arrive in our designated assembly stations beginning at 3:00pm. There's no need to attend the safety drill the following day (10/31) if you attend during the pre-party. If you miss the safety drill during the pre-party, you must attended the safety drill the following embark day.
CHEAP TRICK SHOW
Cheap Trick will take the stage at 6:00pm, so make sure you're on board by then, because you don't wanna miss it!
EXCLUSIVE! CHEAP TRICK will now be ROCKIN' the Pre-Party night!!! To add the pre-party to your reservation please call 877-379-9183.
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!
You’ll be able to check in before 7:30pm Thursday October, 30th and we’ll set sail in the evening. We’ll have the best pre-party to date, out on the ocean with live music by supporting bands, a casino, and bars stumbling distance from your room. Then, 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 cabin for the pre-party night for a flat rate based on room category and number of guests at the same time you make your cabin reservation. ** PLEASE NOTE THE LAST DAY TO ADD THE PRE-PARTY TO YOUR RESERVATION WILL BE OCTOBER 3, 2014 FINAL PAYMENT DEADLINE AT 6:00PM ET. CONTACT US AT 877-379-9183 TO ADD THE PRE-PARTY TO YOUR RESERVATION.
|Cost Per Person|
|Double (2)||Triple (3)||Quad (4)||Quint (5)|
|Balcony & Suites||$225||$167||$138||$120|
- The pre-party is only for guests sailing on KISS Kruise IV in 2014.
- KISS will not be in attendance at the pre-party
- Guests will stay in the same cabin they reserve for the cruise.
- The cost of the cabin for the pre-party is determined by the number of guests in the cabin during the cruise. For instance, if you have a triple occupancy cabin 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 does ticket forfeiting work?
We are offering this program on a limited basis to solve two challenges. 1) We have gotten feedback from some guests who come on the cruise to support their significant other and do not attend the indoor shows. 2) Because of the number of guests who add 3rd or 4th guests to their cabins, it results in us pushing the capacity of the indoor shows right to the edge. We want to delight all our guests while still maintaining the best, most comfortable concert experience, therefore, any forfeited tickets will not be reassigned or available to purchase.
How do I make a reservation?
Placing a reservation is easy! Please visit www.thekisskruise.com/booknow to get started. If you need help or would like to book over the phone please call 1-877-379-9183 Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm ET!
PLEASE NOTE! Lead Passengers, if you or your guest(s) needs a Sixthman Username you can create one while booking. If you and your guest have Sixthman Usernames, have your guest add you as an Approved Lead Passenger in their account. You'll then see your guest in Your Authorized Guests list and you'll be able to add them as a guest in your cabin while booking!
Anyone who has traveled with Sixthman previously or signed up for the The KISS Kruise IV Pre-Sale has a username and will not need to create one. If you don't know your login credentials, you can recover them here.
What information will I need to book my cabin?
Cabin Selection: During booking you will select your desired cabin 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 KISS Kruise IV Pre-Sale you have a username.

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 cabin. 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 cabin. 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 does automatic billing work?
Enroll in automatic billing, and relax knowing that your future payments will be made automatically. When you book, we'll calculate an even monthly payment plan and you'll choose the day of the month you want your payments to be processed. It's that easy! Be sure to read the Automatic Billing FAQs for the answers to all your questions.
How do I let someone add me to their reservation?
To let someone add you to their reservation, you'll need to have a Sixthman Username and add your lead passenger to Your Approved Lead Passengers list. Create a Sixthman profile here, or login to your existing profile. Then, in the Guest Permissions section, click the "Add New Lead Passenger" button and enter your lead passenger's username. Once you save it, they'll appear in Your Approved Lead Passengers list. You're all set, the lead passenger can now add you as a guest in their cabin!
What is a Sixthman Username, and how do I create one?
Each guest needs a Sixthman Username to create, manage, or be added to a reservation. Click here to create your Sixthman Username. Your username should be something that is easy for you to remember such as your name or nickname.
If you have traveled with Sixthman previously or signed up for the The KISS Kruise IV Pre-Sale, you have a username and will not need to create one.
