Exactly 26 days ago, Hard's Holy Ship! electronic music cruise packed Skrillex, Steve Aoki, Fatboy Slim, Rusko, Diplo, A-Trak, dozens of other professional party starters, and 3000 beat freaks onto the MSC Poesia for a full weekend of uhntz-uhntz-ing across the high seas.
And yes, there were a couple of incidents on the ocean liner. Like, after chugging outta Port Everglades at approximately 169 BPMs, Holy Ship! encountered choppy waters, skipped a beat, and ran aground in the Bahamas.
But mostly, the sailing was so beat-freaking smooth that Hard has already announced, "HOLY SHIP! will return in 2013."
And why not? Mere minutes after returning to dry land, the interwebs were awash with compliments from the cruise's superstar jocks. Just take these superkind words from brostepper Skrillex, who got wild with the hyperbole via Twitter:
Or this breathless post-party tweet from Dim Mak mastermind and Benihana heir Steve Aoki:
Even Rusko dropped a load in his dub drawers over Hard's oceanic EDM adventure:
So while all y'all beat freaks might still be recovering from sea sickness, sorting through flashbacks of the Bahamas incident, and slowly peeling the Mad Decent stickers off your tits, it's almost time to reserve your 2013 cabin aboard the MSC Poesia.
The high seas shall uhntz-uhntz again.
