A statement reads: “There is no doubt about it – Kiss has influenced the rock’n’roll scene worldwide with their fist-pumping anthems, show stopping theatrics, and captivating live shows. 

“In the midst of their End Of The Road world tour (opens in new tab), the Starchild, Demon, Spaceman, and Catman are excited hit the open ocean and you’re invited. 

“From Kiss’ electrifying Stardust Theater shows and exciting activities with each member of the band, to autograph sessions with artists from the lineup and much more, our ninth journey is sure to be an experience of a lifetime.”
