This year’s instalment of It’s The Ship will focus on providing shipmates with an all-inclusive festival experience that showcases an impressive array of artists.

Household trance act and fan favourite Vini Vici will showcase their signature sound and infectious energy that will undoubtedly send shipmates into a frenzy onboard this year’s 5th festival edition.

Joining them will be the Grammy award winning record producer Paul Van Dyk who is set to close IT’S THE SHIP’s most epic edition yet with his signature beats and style which earned him the title of World’s Number One DJ twice in a row.

You can check out the full line-up here!

If this is your first time, don’t fret. Here’s what you can expect on board It’s The Ship 2018.

Themed Pop-Up Parties

Remember that really weird minion costume you bought last year for Halloween that’s now hidden at the back of your wardrobe? Put it to use for the many themed pop-up up parties on board.

From everyone’s all-time favourite Onesie Party to the loud and colourful Bloc Party, get your photos taken as you dance the night away decked in the wildest costumes you own. Who knows, you might even form your very own minion army.

Side Activities With Your Favourite Artists

“Meet-and-greet passes”? “Backstage passes”?

What are those?

Bump into your favourite DJ while you’re in line for breakfast, while you’re having a dip in the pool or they might even be busting a move on the dance floor next to you.

If you think that lady luck is never by your side, then sign up for various side activities with artists including a morning yoga session, 3-on-3 basketball and some good ol’ beer pong to name a few fun stuff.

Gala Night

A staple of the festival is the much awaited Gala Night where shipmates come dressed to the nines to enjoy a swanky themed evening together.

Trade your bikinis and boardies for gowns and suits at the Gala Night event. It’s The Ship 2016 edition saw David Hasselhoff perform numerous songs during the ship’s gala night and serenaded everyone in the audience. Did we tell you that he has a great singing voice?

Who knows who will be serenading you next at this year’s Gala Night!

Relax With The Best Facilities

Take a break from all that hardcore partying to explore the ship and its facilities.

Enjoy pampering sessions at the spa with your girls (or boys), try out all their different six water slides, ping pong tables, a mini golf course, and rock climbing wall.
