Beyond the epic performances and parties onboard curated by FRIENDSHIP’s founder DESTRUCTO (including last year’s Dial-A-DJ where cruisers could dial a special # to have a DJ delivered to their room for a private set), shippers will find themselves this turn on the Navigator of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s ship which recently underwent a $115 million-dollar upgrade. Check out the current updates to the boat’s upgrades HERE.
The inaugural FRIENDSHIP took place late 2018 aboard the glamorous Celebrity Equinox and sailed from Miami to two private island beach parties in Coco Cay, Bahamas. The four-day/four-night electronic music cruise was attended by 3000 revelers and sold out in less than 24 hours. It featured live performances and DJ sets from some of the best and most-popular international music acts, including Rüfüs Du Sol, Boys Noize, Dixon, 2manydjs, Claptone, and many more.
It’s not too late to come aboard. A limited number of cabins remain for purchase up until December 30. For full details log on to For full details log on to www.thefriendship.com.
