Independence of the Seas will have an even more glamorous launch than what was previously anticipated.
The Association of Cruise Experts website highlights that rockers Scouting for Girls are set to arrive onboard via helicopter on April 26th to perform a special gig.
Virgin Radio will do a live broadcast of the event, which will be experienced by 2,000 guests onboard.
The concert also forms part of the broadcaster's 15th anniversary celebrations.
It was "typically Virgin Radio" to celebrate its birthday on the world's biggest cruise ship, said David Lloyd of Virgin Radio.
Southampton city council is offering website visitors the chance to win a pair of tickets to see the special gig and enjoy a night onboard the Independence of the Seas.
It suggests those who are not lucky enough to have a ticket to go onboard the vessel can enjoy her magnificent looks from Mayflower Park, which the council claims is the best vantage point.
