Following the historic announcement and immediate sell-out of Week 1, CREED has announced a second sailing of their immersive Nineties rock ‘n’ roll celebration at sea, Summer Of ’99 Cruise. The Summer Of ’99 And Beyond Cruise is highlighted by the GRAMMY® Award-winning band’s second public live performances in more than a decade.

The first sailing of CREED’s Summer Of ’99 Cruise heads to sea April 18-22, 2024 from Miami, FL to Nassau, Bahamas aboard Norwegian Pearl. Heralded earlier this summer with a series of viral teasers that lit up social media, Summer Of ’99 Cruise was met by worldwide media attention spanning Billboard, SPIN, Metal Injection, Loudwire, Sportskeeda, Stereogum, and American Songwriter, and proved the fastest sell-out of any artist-headlined cruise in Sixthman history, with all reservations booked in just 29 hours. In addition, Summer Of ’99 Cruise is now the top 3 among Sixthman’s all-time Pre-Sale Signups and Waiting List Signups for cruises of any kind.

The GRAMMY® and American Music Award-winning CREED formed in Tallahassee, Florida, in 1994. The more than one billion streams between “Higher,” “My Sacrifice,” “One Last Breath,” “With Arms Wide Open,” and “My Own Prison” on Spotify alone is a testament to the band’s enduring power. Nearly 30 years after CREED’s formation, the ubiquitous anthems composed by singer Scott Stapp and guitarist Mark Tremonti, performed for millions of fans around the world together with drummer Scott Phillips and bassist Brian Marshall, are part of modern rock and alternative’s DNA. My Own Prison (1997) is one of the late 20th century’s biggest debuts. Human Clay (1999) and Weathered (2001) both entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 1. Full Circle (2009), released after a hiatus, bowed at No. 1 on the Top Rock, Hard Rock, and Alternative charts and No. 2 on the Billboard 200. With more than 53 million albums sold worldwide, CREED stands alongside iconic bands like Van Halen, Guns N’ Roses, and Metallica as one of an elite few hard rock outfits to earn RIAA Diamond-certified status, for more than 11 million sales of Human Clay in the United States.
