Wanna go on the New Kids on the Block cruise? Start swimming


The Carnival cruise ship Imagination set sail Friday from Miami. Among the 2,100 passengers: hundreds and hundreds of drooling 20- and 30-something-year-old women. Oh, and five guys named Danny, Joey, Donnie, Jordan and Jonathan.

Yes, it's the New Kids on the Block cruise. (Hey, guys. It's okay to wear shorts on a cruise from Florida. It is like 90 degrees right now, ya know? As if!) Special cruises with music acts from the '80s aren't a new concept -- for example, Motley Crue's Vince Neil has been doing a Motley Cruise pretty regularly for a while now. But this might be the first time that five pasty-white, shaving-impaired jackasses from the Northeast are the toast of a cruise ship. Somebody cue the Gilligan's Island theme song and let's hope their three-day cruise turns to a three-decade cruise.

Thankfully, it appears our gang of misfit musicians isn't blogging from the cruise. I'm not sure how long we could handle items like ...

SATURDAY, 3:30 p.m.: Jordan and Donnie have fun with napkin-folding class. Meanwhile, Joey makes three girls faint when he shows his "elephant trunk" during a towel-animal exhibit.
