From their website:

Progressive Nation at Sea is an infusion of music and technique that’ll heighten your senses in a way no other vacation ever could! Imagine a couple thousand prog enthusiasts surrounding you on the Norwegian Pearl, as we set sail from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay and Grand Bahama Island, February 18-22, 2014. You’ve never experienced anything like it.
Progressive Nation at Sea boasts the musical genius of Transatlantic, Portnoy, Sheehan, MacAlpine, Sherinian, Jon Anderson, Adrian Belew's Power Trio, Devin Townsend, King's X, Spock's Beard, The Flower Kings, Pain Of Salvation, Riverside, Animals as Leaders, The Safety Fire, Tony Harnell & Bumblefoot, Bigelf, Beardfish, The Dear Hunter, Haken, Jolly, and Next to None. We’ll be adding more artists to the mix to compliment our stellar starting lineup.

And if there's a band playing you don't care for, hey, you're on a ship in tropical waters!
