Even if the New England Patriots don't repeat as Super Bowl champions in 2016, their star tight end Rob Gronkowski is planning to celebrate in the Caribbean next February.
The three-time Pro Bowler and his family will host a three-day party cruise to the Bahamas in Feburary 2016. "Gronk's Party Ship" is scheduled to depart Miami on Feb. 19 and cruise to the Bahamas before returning to the U.S. on Feb. 22.
And for fans who are skeptical they will actually get to hang with Gronk on the high seas, a photo of him with each shipmate is included in the ticket purchase.
Tickets for the roundtrip adventure start at $700.
In addition to a photo with Gronk, the cruise will include several onboard activities, many of which will be hosted by the 6'6" 275-pound gridiron superstar, who's developed a reputation as being the life of the party since entering the league in 2010.
There'll be a Q&A session with the Gronkowski family and live music performances featuring some of Gronk's favorite artists throughout the ship. Plus, passengers will disembark with an autographed piece of memorabilia.
Atlanta-based travel company Sixthman, which specializes in themed cruises for "bands, brands, and fans," is helping organize the unique experience.
"It's time to PARTY, it's time to ROCK, but more importantly, it's time to get GRONK'D!" states the cruise's official website. "Rob Gronkowski and his family want you to grab your sunnies, your swimsuits, your babes and your bros for one hell of a shindig sailing down the coast. It’s time to go big or go home 'cause we're throwing a 3-day party sailing from Miami to the Bahamas with 2,500 of his most hype'd up fans, favorite bands, DJs, and comedians!"
The cruise already has its own Twitter account, which will most likely be used to provide more information in the coming months.
Fans of Gronk, Bahamas or partying can enter their name and email address on the website to receive additional information about the cruise.
