Woke up everyday (if i do sleep) with zero plans for the next few hours. I let the music decide.

Name: Danielle
Age: 27
Country: Guam
What’s the best part of ITS?
Best part of ship was being in the middle of the sea on the deck with a ton of people riding the same electronic wave. That’s not something not many can say they’ve done. Also Krewella absolutely killed it!
Describe ITS in 5 words: Magic; positivity; connection; luxury; #teamnosleep.
What advice would you give to a shipmate who is coming on board for the very first time this year?
My advice would be to drop any expectations because you can’t even imagine & aren’t ready for what you’re about to experience!

Age: 27
Country: New Zealand
What’s the best part of ITS?
The vibe
Describe ITS in 5 words: Best time of my life
What advice would you give to a shipmate who is coming on board for the very first time this year?
Get as much information as you can and be early


Name: Jacqueline – but please call me Jacq
Age: 36
Country: Portugal
What’s the best part of ITS?
It’s the Ship is like another dimension – one where your liver can day drink, night drink, and still wake up without a hangover. The energy is incredible – everyone is just happy and excited to be there. Artists tend to exceed your expectations of what you think they’re like, or what music they play. Yellow Claw can play hip hop: Who knew?!
Describe ITS in 5 words: The best party on water
What advice would you give to a shipmate who is coming on board for the very first time this year?
Sunscreen is a must. Get a good waterproof bag that is cute, and comfortable to carry because having to go all the way back down to your cabin is a buzzkill. Pace yourself because you still have the second and third nights (my fav), if you wear makeup (and I love it) don’t bother taking too much. Your eyeshadow palette has no place on the high seas. Also, I kinda like not knowing what artists look like because it makes chatting with people more fun. Just talk to people – everyone kinda lets their guard down too on the ship, and you make all sorts of new friends


Name: Jenya Smith + Sean Smith
Age: 31, 47

What’s the best part of ITS?

Describe ITS in 5 words:
Jenya: Most fun ever getting exhausted.
Sean: Awesome Sounds Amazing Atmosphere = Nirvana
What advice would you give to a shipmate who is coming on board for the very first time this year?
Jenya: Loose yourself – go crazy and don’t waste your time sleeping
Sean: The party goes for 4 days. Don’t burn yourself out on Day 1.
