There’s a snow storm happening in Toronto and what better time to escape then by heading to Miami for the eighth annual Monsters of Rock Cruise? Spending 6 days on a luxury liner in the Caribbean sounds quite appealing in and of itself, now add 40+ rock bands and stops on two private beaches (one on Coco Cay in The Bahamas, the other on Labadee in Haiti) and you’re living and partying like a rockstar for a week.

The cruise boasts non-stop concerts from morning till late in every venue the ship, Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of The Seas, has to offer. Time to pull out the schedule and decide which shows I want to catch tonight…. There are so many events and concerts that you almost have to plan your day around what shows you want to see, and it’s near impossible to see everyone you want. Luckily though, almost band performs at least twice over the week.

Day 1 included a headline set by Tyketto, along with killer shows by Pretty Maids and Autograph.
