Nothing says 'big weekend' like a party cruise and 2017's debut of The Ark cruise was easily one of the biggest weekends of the year. So we rushed at the chance to get back on board for a double sailing this year.

2018 will see The Ark embark on back-to-back cruises with a unique lineup on each cruise. You can come for the first or second, or both if you're hardcore. We'll once again host our own stage on board the biggest party ship on the high seas.

This year we'll be taking over The Reef on Thursday 30th August for the first cruise, which will feature CamelPhat, Monki, Cristoph and The Menendez Brothers. While for the second cruise we'll be In The Deep on Wednesday 5th September with Solardo, Route 94, Yousef and The Menendez Brothers.

Elsewhere on the ship there'll be performances from Luciano, Loco Dice, Faithless (DJ Set), Patrick Topping, Andrea Oliva, Claptone, Art Department and Nic Fanciulli.

The ship will be converted to a luxurious floating club with four different stages. Specially for the cruise, on-board facilities such as the current cinemas and theatres, as well as the ice skating rink and the upper deck, will all be converted into festive stages with just the right vibe.

As well as partying, guests will be pampered on the culinary front with a choice of many on-board restaurants, an impressive wellness centre and spa, plus the many sports facilities on board will also be available to all passengers.

The ship sets sail from Barcelona on Thursday, August 30th and from there will travel to Sète, where it will dock for the morning. Passengers will have the opportunity to disembark and explore the historic French town. Next up the ship will dock on the world famous party island of Ibiza. Here guests will be able to disembark and spend an afternoon and evening soaking up all the White Isle has to offer. From Ibiza it's just a quick island hop to Palma Mallorca, where guests can spend an entire day. Finally the cruise returns to Barcelona on Monday 3rd September. From here it's all change as the second sailing will begin the journey all over again!
