The major change that sets Rock the Boat 2024 apart from previous editions is the exciting opportunity for passengers to experience the headliners on the “all-weather” pool deck.

The pool deck provides general admission standing areas, a dance floor, and a mezzanine level for better viewing, ensuring an optimal concert-at-sea experience for all attendees.

“We are incredibly excited to bring Rock the Boat 2024 to Carnival Luminosa for the first time,” said Marius Els, CEO of Choose Your Cruise.  “This cruise offers music lovers a unique opportunity to enjoy world-class performances from a new generation of artists. Rock the Boat will be a vibrant new experience for both fans and performers with the pool deck being the main focal point. The new concert setup on the pool deck takes our Rock the Boat experience to a whole new level, providing an unforgettable atmosphere for our guests. This will be a true Music Festival at Sea.”

Sailing on a return trip from Sydney, passengers will have the opportunity to explore two magnificent ports of call: Mare (Loyalty Islands) and Noumea (New Caledonia). Mare, known for its pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters, offers a tropical paradise for beach lovers and nature enthusiasts. From swimming and snorkeling in the turquoise lagoons to discovering vibrant coral reefs and exotic marine life, Mare is a true haven of natural beauty. In Noumea, guests can immerse themselves in the vibrant culture and French-inspired charm of New Caledonia. Explore the bustling markets, indulge in delicious local cuisine, or embark on an adventure to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed lagoon, where breathtaking landscapes and breathtaking underwater wonders await.
