Boston has a special place in graffiti history — and not just because one of our early marquee vandals, Popeye, was Jordan Knight of the New Kids on the Block.
This year, fans get to vote!
In the past it's been PJs, Dress to Impress, White Night and casino night. The latter was a dream as the five members dressed to the nines in black tuxes, while another evening on last year's cruise, Donnie, Danny, Joe, Jordan and Jon dressed in togas showing some well-defined muscles.
Each year, leading up to the May sail, fans anticipate what the themes will be because, of course, a girl needs to go shop for the perfect ensemble.
Every year since 2009, the New Kids on the Block and more than 1,000 Blockheads sail to the Bahamas. This year, the 2011 cruise is one day longer and on a bigger ship.
But, the same antics and greatness will be enjoyed ... meet and greets, a concert, gambling, dancing, and an all-time favorite: running into a New Kid who happens to be wandering the ship.
The Carnival ship leaves from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., May 12. Every so often since the 90-day countdown began, the New Kids tweet how many days remain until the ship blows its horns.
This year, lucky ladies (and boyfriends and husbands of the ladies -- yes, they go too) can vote for the themes. They are as follows:
4. Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness
5. Hawaiian Luau
6. Red Carpet
7. Sports Team/Jersey
