U.D.O., SABATON, CIRCLE II CIRCLE, VAN CANTO and ESKIMO COWBOY are the latest acts confirmed for the first and the biggest metal cruise in Europe, the Full Metal Cruise, set to sail from from May 5th to 12th of 2013.

The Full Metal Cruise starts in Hamburg, Germany and enters the harbors of Southampton, UK, Le Havre, France and Amsterdam, Netherlands. After seven days full of sea and relaxing and metal and party feeling, the ship then returns to Hamburg with a special show at the harbor anniversary fest. While there will be big fireworks and a special show on onboard, the cruise will return to the harbor and this will be one of the many things leading to a great overall experience for every metal-sailor!
The special features of this Metal Cruise:
- Drinks and food are included
- No difficult travelling to the starting point – Hamburg, the gateway to the world!
- Concerts take place onboard and onshore
- Interesting shore excursions for every metal-heart
More than 20 high-quality bands from the metal and rock scene will perform on three stages at the Mein Schiff 1.
In the many lounges onboard, the metalheads can party and meet the artists – nowhere else it is possible to have such a direct connection to the musicians. Furthermore, metalheads can book shore excursions with more concerts at the harbors. The line up of the shows at the seaports and onboard of the cruise will be announced soon.
“Heavy and hard music and a cruise don’t conflict with each other”, says Wacken boss Thomas Jensen. “With the Full Metal Cruise we want to bring a real Metal festival to the sea!”
