Save the date: Asia's first party cruise IT'S THE SHIP (ITS 2016) returns to Singapore this November. Attracting some 3,800 revellers last year, the sold-out event saw EDM headliners including Kaskade, Showtek, Ferry Corsten and Carnage perform aboard a cruise. Yup, this isn't your typical gambling party and guests don't look like the ones in God's waiting room — instead, expect nautical naughties, pyjama onesies and some serious festival style.

To be held aboard the Royal Carribean International cruise liner, the festival will start on 4 November from Marina Bay Cruise Centre before crossing the straits of Malacca to arrive in Penang and back. Of course, it's not all about the music — facilities on board include a spa, mini golf course, ice-skating rink, basketball court, rock-climbing wall and a casino.

The phase one artiste lineup for ITS 2016 will be revealed by end May, so watch this space. In the meantime, tickets launch today, complete with a 30% early bird discount on all cabins (except Royal Family Suite, Owner's Suite and Family Ocean View cabins) for the first 300 cabin purchasers. Cabin prices are inclusive of complimentary 24-hour dining and room service, selected non-alcoholic beverages and free usage of most of the ship's facilities.
