Bret Michaels’ Cruise Is Canceled?!?! Some Others You Could Go On, Instead.

Bad news, guys. If you reserved yourself a cabin for the Bret Michaels’ Super Cruise—the four-day boat trek from Miami with Mr. Poison himself this summer—it has officially been cancelled. According to the company that arranged it, the event was nixed because of “lack of participation.” But Bret says that isn’t the case at all. He says the cruise was coordinated by “a less-than-reputable promoter … who feels he can take advantage of both artists and fans.” He said, “I want to reassure everyone that I have went out of my way to try and make this the best fan cruise on the high seas … Know that I am working hard to right this wrong. All money will be refunded to you.” [TMZ]

But really, dry your eyes. Here are some other pop culture cruises you can go on this year.

  • Sure, Bret might have sung “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” But KISS always had way better stage makeup. Sail with them to the Bahamas October 13-17 and enjoy a Halloween costume party and a Q&A with the band. Don’t even think of becoming the 5,001 notch on Gene Simmon’s bedpost, though.
  • Are you one of those people who watches 24 hours of “A Christmas Story” on TBS every year? Then you should probably hop aboard the The Christmas Story Cruise of the western Caribbean, taking place December 15 through 19. You can even meet Miss Shields!
  • The Backstreet Boys cruise was so popular last year that it sold out. Maybe it was the impromptu performances and the “beach party buffet”? Book your tickets now for this hot December 2nd cruise. Because Backstreet’s back, alright?
  • Wait, do we really have to wait until January 2012 to sail from Miami to Cozumel with Weezer? They will be joined by 15 other seminal ’90s bands, ranging from Dinosaur Jr. to Sebadoh. Wait, actually, I really want to go on that one.
  • Do you love Mary Higgins Clark? And have $7,845 to spend on a cruise? Then you’ll want to board the Crystal Serenity on September 7 for a 12-night cruise of the Black Sea and Mediterranean with the author, taking overnights in Venice and Istanbul. You’ll get to meet Mary herself.

Do any of these cruises make you want to sail the seven seas?
