ATTENTION KISS NAVY! Are you ready to join us on another wild, rockin’ vacation of a lifetime with your leaders, KISS? The seventh mission of The KISS Kruise will be filled with tons of music, camaraderie, and KISS-themed activities!
Before you can embark on this mission of KISStastic proportions, you've got to do two things:
Save the date! We’ll be setting sail from New Orleans, November 5 - 10, 2017, aboard Norwegian Pearl.
Join the pre-sale! Visit the pre-sale page and you'll be well on your way to sailing the high seas with the best band in the world, KISS!
Those who book during the pre-sale will receive a limited edition KISS Navy Salute Scarf prior to sailing.* This comfortable, lightweight scarf can be worn all year long and is the perfect way to salute your KISS Navy Leaders. Whether you're wearing it around your neck or holding high above your head for all to see, it’s a great way to show your passion, love, and dedication for the best band in the world - the one and only KISS!
*To avoid any shipping issues and to ensure all guests receive their scarves, we will deliver our Argentinean and Brazilian guests' items on board.
Getting involved in the pre-sale is easy! Register at thekisskruise.com/presale.

The KISS Kruise 2016 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. This group will have earliest booking times on January 12th through January 17th.
Alumni that missed The KISS Kruise 2016 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. This group will have earliest booking times on January 17th, after the 2016 alumni have a chance to book.
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. This group will have earliest booking times on Jan 18th, 19th and 20th.
Once the pre-sale ends, the general public will be able to book at 2PM ET on January 20th.
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.
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.
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 VII 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.
Credit Card Payment: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are all accepted. 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.
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 stateroom!
Each guest needs a Sixthman Username to create, manage, or be added to a reservation. Click here to create your Sixthman Username.
If you have traveled with Sixthman previously or signed up for the The KISS Kruise VII Pre-Sale, you have a username and will not need to create one. If you don't know your username, you can recover it here. You can also contact us and we will be happy to look it up for you (try our live chat feature or call us at 877-379-9183).

The exact performance schedule of all bands on The KISS Kruise VII lineup will be released prior to the kruise. You can count on each band playing multiple shows occurring on multiple stages!
KISS will play a Pool Deck Sailaway Show for all of The KISS Navy. This show is general admission for every guest to attend.
KISS Indoor Ticketed Shows
KISS will also perform two nights in the Stardust Theater. Two guests in each cabin will receive KISS Indoor Show tickets for one night. Pending availability, 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.
How does the Pit Section Work?
So you have one of those coveted spots in the pit? Sweet! Here’s how the pit process will work for The KISS Kruise VII.
- The Pit does NOT have spots assigned within the pit area. However, you'll be assigned a pit line entry number based on booking date and time. Earliest booking time = first in line.
- Show up to your scheduled indoor KISS show 30 mins prior to doors. PIT guests will line up in front of the Stardust Theater Deck 6, STARBOARD Side.
When the theater is ready, PIT guests will be the first to enter. We will allow entrance into the theater in small groups. For example, numbers 1-15 will enter the theater first. Once that group is all settled, we will then let in the next group, numbers 16-30 and so on.
