It's tough to put a price on music, but the going rate at sea seems to be about $700 per person plus tax and miscellaneous fees. At least that's what virtually every four-night music theme cruise to the Bahamas seems to cost these days.

Yes, even the latest indie progressive metal cruise.

Legendary skins man and Death Theater co-founder Mike Portnoy recently announced that he's re-launching his signature "Progressive Nation" aboard the Norwegian Pearl, navigating the warm waters of the Caribbean with some of his prog-rocking besties.

Best of all, the ship sets sail from Miami.

"I have decided to resurrect Progressive Nation and this time we are taking it to the seas," Portroy said in a statement. "But rather than a 4 band bill like previous Progressive Nation tours, we have expanded the bill to over a dozen of today's greatest progressive bands, musicians and artists!"

Among them, prog-rock supergroup Transatlantic, the Flower Kings, Pain of Salvation, Jon Anderson, and others.

But that's not all!

The Norwegian Pearl offers a boatload of sweet amenities in addition to killer tuneage. All-you-can-eat buffets, bingo, a bowling alley, a few hot tubs, a library, and a ton of bars to help you forget about the $1,4000 (plus fees) you spent for you and your honey to rub elbows with prog rock royalty.

Bon voyage!
