What is Kid Rock Cruise 2016?

How does the Waiting List work?

Kid Rock Cruise 2016 is currently full. If we have cancelations prior to departure (which we often do), we will fill those rooms via our Waiting List.

When signing up for the waiting list, you will be asked what type of stateroom you want. You will be required to put down a $199 deposit that is NON REFUNDABLE, except in the event we do not have a stateroom for you by January 11, 2016. This means that we will refund your deposit if we cannot accommodate your stateroom request by January 11, 2016, but you will forfeit your deposit if you decide to take yourself off the list before that time.

After January 11, 2016 we will send an email to everyone still on the waiting list asking if they would like to remain on it. If you would like to take yourself off of the waiting list at that time, you may do so and receive a check for the full refund of your deposit. If you choose to stay on the waiting list past January 11, 2016, and we cannot accommodate your stateroom request before the cruise sails, we will automatically refund your deposit a few weeks after sailing.

FIRST AVAILABLE - If you chose “First Available – Waiting List First Available”, you are committing to take any type of stateroom that may come available, including suites.

How do I book a stateroom?

Booking your stateroom is easy! You can book online at, or over the phone by calling 877-379-9178.

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 has a username and will not need to create one.  If you don't know your login credentials, you can recover them here.

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 do I make a payment?

To make a payment, booked guests can login to their Sixthman account and click 'Make a Payment' next to their reservation.  Any named guest on a reservation can submit an online payment.

Payments can also be made via phone by calling Sixthman at 877-379-9178.

Can I make changes to my booking?

Only Lead Passengers can request to change or remove existing guests, or to upgrade to a higher priced category.  Downgrading your cabin to a cabin of lesser value is not allowed. The Lead Passenger must request these changes by phone or email.  In some cases a signed Reservation Change Form may be required.  This form can be found here.

Because the Lead Passenger owns the reservation, any changes to this passenger are subject to a Lead Passenger change fee of $299, and will require a signed Reservation Change Form.

ALL names must be received by December 9, 2015.  Each reservation is allowed one free name change prior to December 9, 2015.  Additional changes prior to that date are subject to a $50 administrative fee per change.

Any changes, including adding unnamed guests made after December 9, 2015, but more than one week before the cruise are $75 per change. Any changes, including adding unnamed guests made within a week of the cruise are $100 per change. Changes or additions made within the week prior to sailing must be done in person at check-in, and may incur a fee up to $299 per change.

What if I want to book a single occupancy stateroom?

Guests traveling by themselves in their own stateroom are responsible for the double-occupancy rate of the stateroom. Single occupancy staterooms will be charged Taxes and Fees for only one guest, and will receive a discount of $199.00 off the second cruise fare.

If you place your single occupancy reservation online please contact us upon completion so we can add the single occupancy discount.

You also have the option of participating in the Independent Traveler Program (ITP). Read the FAQ on the ITP here.

What is the Independent Traveler Program?

If you are planning on joining us for Kid Rock Cruise 2016, but you haven't been able to find someone to go with you, don't worry - this is the program for you!

The Independent Traveler Program (ITP) allows you to book a cabin and only be responsible for your half of the cabin (plus the standard taxes and fees of $225.00). However, by signing up for the ITP, you agree to be paired with another guest who is also participating in the ITP.  Full details can be found here.

Interested? Have questions? Please contact us at or call 877-379-9178 for this unique opportunity!

What type of identification will I need to board the ship?

Remember, at time of booking, you acknowledged that the laws that regulate the necessary travel documentation are subject to change and that it is your responsibility to be aware of what is required for travel.

View the latest information from Norwegian at  Below are recommendations based on the current U.S. government policy. This information could be updated without notice.

Please note that the name on your ticket must match the name on your passport or you will need to provide an original copy of proof of change of name (marriage license, etc).

U.S. Citizens

Sixthman highly recommends all guests travel with a passport valid for at least six months beyond completion of travel. Although a passport is not required for U.S. citizens taking cruises that begin & end in the same U.S. port, travelling with a passport enhances your disembarkation experience, as delays may be expected upon your return to the U.S. if you do not have one. Additionally, passports make it easier for you to fly from the U.S. to a foreign port should you miss your scheduled port of embarkation, or need to fly back to the U.S. for emergency reasons. If you do not have a passport you can use an original or suitable quality copy of a Birth Certificate as listed below.

The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) allows U.S. citizens (including children) sailing on cruises that begin and end in the same U.S. port to travel with one of the following WHTI compliant document:

  • Valid U.S. Passport
  • Passport Card
  • Enhanced Driver's License (EDL)
  • Original or suitable quality copy of a Birth Certificate*
  • Certificate of Naturalization*
  • Trusted Traveler Program Membership Card, e.g., Nexus Card, Sentri Card or Fast Card*

*A government-issued photo ID is also required for all guests, including children 16 and over. For more information, a complete list of WHTI-compliant documents or to obtain a passport application, visit

For more information or to obtain a passport application, visit

Non-U.S. Citizens

All guests must carry a valid passport, and if necessary, a multiple entry visa is required for entry into the United States (i.e. B-2 Visitors Visa), or a visa waiver. Please be sure to check with the proper agencies and authorities (such as your local immigration office) before you sail because we can't board you without the proper documents. Travelers from the 38 Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries* must have a machine-readable passport to enter the U.S. without a visa. All VWP travelers are required to obtain an electronic travel authorization prior to boarding a carrier to travel by air or sea to the U.S. under the VWP.


If you are not a US Citizen and are uncertain that you have the correct documentation please call US Immigrations at 1-800-375-5283 to be sure your identification will be satisfactory.

Alien Residents of the United States holding an Alien Registration Card (ARC or "Green Card") (Form I-551) may travel to Canada, Mexico, Bermuda (see Visa Restrictions on Bermuda) and the Caribbean with just their valid ARC and Proof of Identity. However, it is recommended that these guests also carry their passports from their country of citizenship if available. In some instances, ARC holders may still be required to have sailing permits and/or visas to enter countries Norwegian Cruise Line visits in these areas. Please note that travel anywhere else in the world requires a valid passport from the country you are a citizen of and subsequently subjects you to any documentation, visa and health requirements of all countries visited.

What if I do not have proper identification?

There is no Jedi Mind Trick around this, you MUST have proper identification to be permitted to board the ship. If you arrive at port without proper identification, while Sixthman will assist you in contacting the appropriate agencies, we cannot guarantee that you can successfully attain proper identification from the port, and this may result in being denied boarding without compensation. And this makes us sad.

Am I guaranteed access to all shows onboard?

Kid Rock Cruise 2016 is run “festival style,” with multiple shows going on simultaneously. All of these shows are general admission, so you’re welcome to come and go as you wish!

There are performances where capacity is limited, however the artists perform multiple times during the cruise.
