Specialist cruise creator Choose Your Cruise is excited to announce that legendary Australian rockers Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss and Ross Wilson will be headlining the Rock The Boat 3 cruise in 2013.

This is the third voyage of this nautical rock and roll festival and features the biggest line up of Australian rock legends ever assembled on water.

Taking to the ocean October 19-28, 2013 onboard the Rhapsody Of The Seas, Rock The Boat 3 will take music fans and cruisers on a nine-night round trip from Sydney to the South Pacific, calling at Noumea, Lifou, Mystery Island and The Isle of Pines.

Along with Barnes, Moss and Wilson, Rock The Boat 3 will feature bands playing shows around the ship through the day and night, with performances from Joe Camilleri, Glenn Shorrock, Frankie J Holden, Wilbur Wilde, Mental As Anything, The Chevrolets, Fender Benders, Swinging Sixties, Phoenix, Boris Loves To Boogie, Rave On, Party Cats, Paul Fenech, Leisa Kerris and comedian George Kapiniaris.

Jimmy Barnes said, “Translating my live show from the road to the ocean will be one of the most fun things I’ve ever done. Rock The Boat gives fans the rock and roll they deserve and I’m excited to be playing a part in their experience”.

Choose Your Cruise specialist music-themed cruise founders Mick Manov and Woodstock winemaker, Scott Collett have put together the most comprehensive line up of legendary Australian artists and are looking forward to welcoming them onboard.

"The chance to have such an amazing line-up of Australian rock and roll talent onboard is an honour for Choose Your Cruise," said Mick Manov. "We can’t wait to bring the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll party to the high seas, for the third year in a row, and give fans the time of their lives. The ship will literally be rocking!"

Adding to the non-stop music experience, guests can also enjoy all of the amenities and facilities aboard the Rhapsody Of The Seas, which earlier this year underwent an extensive multi-million-dollar refurbishment that saw a host of new dining options and technology enhancements, completely refreshed staterooms and numerous other features.

Cabins are now on sale to the public; prices start at $2482 per person for double cabins, or four people can sail together for just $1739 per person. For more information go to or call 1300 247 371.
