Sign-Up Activities

These activities require advance sign-up to participate.

Basketball with P-Nut & Nick

It just wouldn’t be the 311 Cruise without this Basketball Tournament with P-Nut. And this year Nick is getting in on the action!

To qualify, you'll have 30 seconds to make 5 shots from all over the court. The top 8 scorers get to play 5 on 5 with P-Nut and Nick! The championship game is played until one team has 7 points - and then the winner is crowned! Sign ups for the lottery ended February 6th, winners will be notified by February 17th. 

Name That Tune With Nick

This has become a great tradition on-board the 311 Cruise! Nick will play a quick snippet of a 311 song – and a randomly chosen panel of contestants have to be first to guess what the song is. If you REALLY know your 311 songs and trivia... you’re going to want to sign up for this! Sign ups for the lottery ended February 6th, winners will be notified by February 17th. 

Family Feud with Tim & P-Nut & Friends

We asked 100 brodels, What is another name for “herb?"…And survey says….

Tim and P-Nut are in for the fun challenge of Family Feud and they want YOU to participate. Joining Tim & P-nut's team is Doug Benson & DJ Trichrome playing Marley from Rebelution, Howi from Ballyhoo!, DJ Soulman, PLUS 1 guest on each team to round it out! Sign ups for the lottery ended February 6th, winners will be notified by February 17th. 

Flip Cup Tournament

311 Cruisers are flippin’ prodigies at this game – so of course we had to bring it back! If you got what it takes, sign your team up HERE. Teams are made up of 6 players.

After teams are checked in on-board, you will be placed into brackets and flip it out to the championship game. Start working out that pointer finger & show us what you’ve got!

Battleshots Tournament

Have you ever played Battleship? Well this isn’t quite that. Teams will form to try to sink opposing team's fleet of ships by guessing where they are without seeing the other teams board. The main difference, their ships are filled with margarita shots provided by our friends at Cabo Wabo! If you sink it, they drink it. The winning team gets to play for glory and 311 Cruise prize packs!  Sign your team up HERE. Teams  are made up of 5 players.

Costume Contest with Rebelution

On Costume Night channel your inner creature as we’ll host an official Costume Party & Contest. We’re making improvements to the contest portion of the evening, especially after reviewing your comments & suggestions in the 2015 post-cruise guest survey. We heard you and we’ve made the following changes to the contest:

  1. First, YOU got to pick the categories! Guests had until Tuesday, October 1 to submit suggestions. AND the most requested Costume Contest Categories were: Superheroes & Villains, 311 Inspired, Movie Characters, Funny, and Scary!
  2. No more check-in process/waiting in Spinnaker for an hour missing out on other programming.
  3. Everyone that wants to be considered for the contest just needs to show up during The Unity All Stars Saturday Night Pool Deck Set where a panel of Sixthman judges will take note of the top contenders. A group of finalists in each costume category will be picked to parade their costumes on the Pool Deck stage in the official contest for our judges, Rebelution, following that show. And the winners will get special prizes!
