Motörhead’s Motörboat sets sail September 28 through October 2, 2015 on Norwegian Sky, departing Port Miami, with stops in Nassau and the private island of Great Stirrup Cay in The Bahamas. The Loudest Boat In The World will feature performances from some of the greatest heavy rock bands in the world, including Slayer , Motörhead , Anthrax , Suicidal Tendencies , Hatebreed , Exodus , Corrosion of Conformity, Crobot , Phil Campbell’s All Starr Band , Motor Sister , Kyng , Fireball Ministry, Huntress, Tim “Ripper” Owens and more.
Motörhead’s Motörboat offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share an experience with their favorite bands and to see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship and on the island of Great Stirrup Cay.
Motörboat guests will celebrate 40 years of the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time during Motörhead’s 40th Anniversary Bash. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, guests will be invited to dress in their Motörhead best, or even as Lemmy, Phil orMikkey themselves, while enjoying cake, libations, and of course lots of heavy music in honor of the rock legends.
Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister says, “40 years of Motörhead will be celebrated aboard the Motörboat, so boys and girls, you know what THAT means, right? There won’t be a dry throat in the house!”
Slayer ’s Kerry King says, “ Slayer is crashing the Motörboat party!! I, personally, will be keeping the bar in business. Hell will be coming with us. Light it up!!!”
Motörhead –the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time– won a Grammy for Best Metal Pefromance in 2005 y for the song “Whiplash.” Through tenacity, hard work, and a deep-seated ability to produce an original, face-melting sound, Motörhead — Lemmy Kilmister (bass, vocals), Phil Campbell (guitar) and Mikkey Dee (drums)–has become one of the most popular bands in the world with a fanbase that is second to none.
The Chicago Tribune ‘s Greg Kot wrote that the five-time-nominated, two-time Grammy winning Slayer is “one of the great American rock bands of the last 30 years, forget about genre.” Indeed, few bands come close to matching the intensity that Slayer brings to its live shows, having been named “Best Live Band” by numerous media outlets including Revolver , SPIN , and Metal Hammer . With songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society, Slayer remains crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream.
2015 marks the first excursion on Norwegian Sky for Motörhead’s Motörboat . The contemporary ship offers 13 complimentary and specialty dining options, 12 bars and lounges, a coffee bar, an outdoor pool, and five hot tubs. While onboard, guests can try their luck in the Sky Club Casino, relax in the onboard spa and get their heart pumping in the fitness center or full basketball court.

Writing about last year’s experience, RollingStone.com proclaimed, “Anthrax, Lemmy Kilmister , hundreds of metalheads and a naked, inflatable doll make the Motörboat cruise completely unforgettable… Motörboat brought heavy metal to the high seas and featured a previously unseen combination of gambling, belly-flopping, shirtlessness, guitar soloing and even yoga [September 29, 2014].”
