NKOTB: Virtual Cruise 2020
This is a huge 3-day bash for fans, which includes a myriad of virtual events that are reminiscent of the ones that would’ve taken place on the actual cruise ship.
On Friday, fans can dress up in “Roaring 20’s” attire and celebrate the kickoff of the epic weekend. It’s a part of their Don’t Rush Challenge. Another contest fans can participate in is the door decorating challenge, where you decorate your door with whatever makes it feel like you’re on the cruise with NKOTB! You can post your photos to social media with the hashtag: #NKOTBDoorDecoration. The winners will be chosen on Sunday, April 26.
Throughout Friday, Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood, and Jonathan Knight will be making various appearances on talk and radio shows, including GMA, Jenny McCarthy Show, Entertainment Tonight, and Sirius XM.
At 5PM ET, the guys will do a virtual gathering live stream, which they’re calling the “Lido Deck Party.” Then, at 10PM ET, join Donnie on Twitter, as he’ll be live tweeting during the new episode of CBS’ Blue Bloods. Lastly, join Donnie, and his wife Jenny over on his IG for a virtual 80’s/90’s theme karaoke party at 11 PM ET.
On Saturday, the theme is “Glitter” so be sure to bust out your best sparkly looks! At 12 PM ET, Jordan Knight will be doing a solo event on his Instagram, followed by another live stream at 1PM ET. At 2 PM ET, you can see Danny Wood bake his mom Betty’s delicious peanut butter cookies via live stream; 8PM ET, Joey McIntyre will be doing a live concert.
