The MSC Divina is one gorgeous white lady. The newest in the Italian fleet, she's named in honor of the equally stunning actress Sophia Loren. She can carry up to 3,959 passengers with a crew of 1,325.

This weekend, she's going to be packed to the brim, but not with families and mild-mannered romantics looking for an oceanic escape. Instead, a merry band of raving bastards is charging its lasers for the world's raddest EDM cruise. But exactly which types of party animal would embark upon such a fiesta?

These are the six people you meet aboard Holy Ship!!!

The Ship Fam

Holy Ship!!! is unlike any other EDM festival, because it breeds a cult-like atmosphere. This is only the third voyage (hence the three exclamation marks -- get it?), and that means some of these people have been on board for every journey. Those already-indoctrinated veterans target newcomers and feed them the Kool-Aid that this is the best weekend of their lives. Et voila! Everyone becomes "Ship Fam." It's like going to summer camp and having a group of friends that you see only once a year. These people are insane, and you will love them.

But it's all right, 'cause those of us with sailing experience are here to guide you newbs every dubstep of the way. Of course, this is a brand-new boat, so the playing field has been ever-so-slightly leveled. Let's discover the treasures of the MSC Divina together. And then let's get plastered and dance like rabid monkeys.
