Those three exclamation points signify three years for electronic dance music's raddest four-day party cruise. (It ain't just bad grammar or Internet-y hyperbole.)
Coincidentally, though, we're exactly that beat-freaking excited about the 2014 edition of Hard Events' EDM humpfest at sea. Especially since it's finally floating outta Miami.
For the last two years, Holy Ship has sailed from Fort Lauderdale's Port Everglades.
But for 2014, this annual uhntz-uhntz-ing trip upon the high seas will cruise off toward the Caribbean from the Port of Miami on January 9 before humping back to the MIA's shores on the following Monday after 72 hours on the open ocean.
Another exciting tidbit: The 2014 cruise will be goin' down aboard an entirely new vessel, the MSC Divina.
"Named," according to Holy Ship!!!'s official hype, "to honor Italian actress Sophia Loren," she is a Fantasia-class luxury cruise ship that's tricked out with a "Broadway-size theatre and real stone piazza" and "Swarovski crystal staircases and [an] expansive pool deck" and even a retro '80s sci-fi discotheque.
In other words ... Holy Effing Ship!!!
Holy Ship!!! 2014. Thursday, January 9, to Sunday, January 12, 2014. MSC Divina, boarding at Port of Miami, 1015 N. America Way, Miami. Visit holyship.com.
