Ten Cruises We'd Rather Take Than the KISS Kruise

Imagine a vacation where made-up members of your favorite glam rock band wander the decks of a cruise ship. Does that sound like heaven on earth? Well, glam boy, you're in luck as the second annual (yes, they've done one before this) KISS Kruise sets sail this October featuring that cuddly '70s powerhouse that just keeps on ticking.

We started thinking about what a cruise like that would entail. Sure, a young KISS in their prime probably would have rocked the house and brought with them a bevy of hot young ladies ready to rock and roll all night and party ev-a-ree day. But, now? At $750 per night, we're guessing most of the guests will be more interested in shuffleboard than "Cold Gin."

So, we put together a list of some cruises we think would be more fun or at least more interesting and imagined the promo teaser that might lead off the press release.
