Paramore have announced their first ever sponsored cruise, dubbed “Parahoy!”

Set to take place from March 7-11, 2014, the four-day cruise will depart from Miami and sail to Great Stirrup Cay, a private island in the Bahamas.

The cruise will include two performances from Paramore, and dozens more from other artists, including special guests Tegan And Sara. A Q&A, sponsored activities with band members, signed memorabilia, and various other events are also included, and registration for the pre-sale is taking place now at the cruise's site.

Check out an announcement video from the band:

Though this marks Paramore's first time hosting a cruise, the practice has been catching on in recent years with other popular artists, notably Weezer. Prior to setting sail, Paramore will embark on tours of Europe, North America, and Australia.
