What is Kid Rock Cruise 2016?

For six incredible years, we’ve rocked it out and shared crazy good times! They don’t call it “lucky number 7” for nothin’ and our next adventure together is gonna hit the jackpot! Kid Rock invites you to his 7th Annual Chillin’ the Most Cruise aboard Norwegian Pearl, March 10-14, 2016 sailing from Miami, FL to Ocho Rios, Jamaica. The action will be smokin’ hot and the beers as cold as ice!

With a ship full of rebel souls, the down and dirty party won’t ever stop. Get ready to get wild with glam metal supergroup, Steel Panther along with a slew of other artists hand picked by the captain himself, Kid Rock! In addition to live shows on multiple stages day and night, this party will be jam packed with activities, theme nights, contests, and more.  We’re kicking off the festivities with a pre-party on board, because four nights with your dysfunctional family just isn’t enough!

Whether you’re a virgin or a veteran, we bet you’ll leave with some lifelong friends and memories.  There’s no better place to tempt lady luck than on a boat, mothe#$(*@er​! And on CTM, the odds are always in your favor for a badass time! 

What is the Pre-Party?

The pre-party is a place for you to kick things off with other Chillin' the Most guests the night before our 4-day adventure begins. We're going to give you a hotel and a pre-party that rocks...and floats! 

Norwegian Pearl is rockin’ the night before the cruise sails! You’ll be able to check in throughout the day on March 9th, and we’ll set sail in the evening. We’ll have the best pre-party to date, out on the ocean where you can listen to some music, hang with your friends, gamble at the casino, and chill at bars that are 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 December 9th, 2015 AT 6:00PM ET.

  • The pre-party is only for guests sailing on Kid Rock Cruise 2016.
  • 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 is the booking order determined during the pre-sale?

Kid Rock Cruise 2015 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 Kid Rock Cruise, 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. 

Alumni that missed Kid Rock Cruise 2015 are next. This group must register for the pre-sale and booking order is determined by number of Kid Rock Cruise sailings, number of Sixthman events, most recent year, then by order of booking for their most recent Kid Rock Cruise.

Kid Rock Cruise 2015 Waiting List guests who did not sail and Kid Rock Cruise 2015 Cancelled Guests will be given a chance to book next.  This group must register for the pre-sale and booking order is determined by the date you booked your canceled 2015 reservation or waiting list entry.

New Kid Rock Cruise 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.

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.

Sixthman Usernames:  You'll need to login with (or create) a Sixthman Username to book.

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.

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 stateroom?

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!

How does travel insurance work?

Sixthman offers you a leading travel insurance plan through our partnership with Travel Insured International. Travel Insured specializes in providing quality coverage and superior customer care and claim service to our Sixthman guests. When you add our plan to your trip, you protect yourself from your policy's effective date through your return home. Your prepaid trip costs are protected against Trip Cancellation or Interruption due to an unforeseen accident or illness to you, your traveling companion or a family member. You also receive Emergency Medical Protection, Baggage Protection, Travel Accident Protection and Worldwide Emergency Travel Assistance available 24/7 during your trip.

Remember that sometimes unwelcome events occur to disrupt great trips:

  • You are protected, up to full trip cost, if bad weather causes your common carrier to cease operating for 24 hours or more.
  • Illness or injury to you or a traveling companion or immediate family member causing you to cancel or interrupt your trip.
  • Missed Connection coverage can pay your expenses (up to $500) to rejoin the cruise or tour when you miss the departure due to a three-hour or more flight delay.
  • Emergency Medical Expense covers you if you need treatment in a foreign hospital for a sudden illness or accident. We guarantee your admission!
  • 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. The Cancel For Any Reason benefit must be purchased within 21 days of your initial trip deposit. 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.

We know you might have questions about what is and is not covered so we encourage you to read the Insurance PDF or call Travel Insured at 1-866-684-0218 and specify you are calling about Sixthman Travel Protection.
