The 2nd instalment of “It’s The Ship” takes place aboard the luxrious 70,000 tonne Royal Caribbean International’s Mariner Of The Seas from 20th – 23rd November with a pit stop in Langkawi for a show-stopping private beach party to remember.

Thomas Newson and Marco V will play a B2B set in Ferry Corsten’s signature show, “Full On”, alongside Ferry Corsten himself and Mark Sherry. For the first time ever, the much anticipated show, Full On, will be hosted on-board a cruise liner in Southeast Asia.

The mammoth-sized lineup this year will see over 50 international and regional artistes playing a wide range of music such as trap, EDM, house, hardstyle, pop and hip hop.

Fun fact: In case you didn’t know, it’ll also make for a pretty epic set as it’ll be the first time that most of us will be able to witness father and son duo Marco V and Thomas Newson take over the decks for a B2B gig.

The inaugural “It’s The Ship” last year saw close to 2,500 fans from over 49 countries set sail with this year’s edition expected to be even bigger.

“It’s The Ship 2015” is expected to attract a sold-out crowd of over 3,800 fans of which 80% will come from international destinations such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, Taiwan, South Korea, the USA and Europe.


To date, the ship is currently at 70% capacity with 50 nationalities making up those already on-board.

As part of the holistic experience, the 15-deck Mariner of The Seas flaunts a casino, 10 pools and whirlpools, 17 bars, clubs and lounges, a duty-free shopping promenade, a full service day spa, an ice skating rink, a mini golf course, a full sized basketball court and a rock climbing wall overlooking the sea.

Entertainment wise, aside from the numerous music stages, this year’s “It’s The Ship” has also partnered with Playboy Thailand to host an exclusive after-party on-board the cruise. Organisers are promising various activities where fans will have the opportunity to mingle and engage with the various international acts from the lineup.
