New Kids on the Block posted an update on their website this morning saying there will not be a cruise in 2019, but they will have one in the Spring of 2020! It seems like the text is not showing up on some mobile devices, so here is the complete announcement:
IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM NKOTB
We've received so many inquiries about the next NKOTB Cruise. Including many questions about whether there will even be another cruise. Rest assured — NKOTB Cruise XI will be happening. In fact, we cannot wait to set sail with you again! That said, we've long wanted to find a way to return the cruise to its original Spring-time period.
Since we will already be spending this coming Spring and Summer hanging out with all of you on the Mixtape Tour, we've decided that this is the perfect opportunity to begin the process of making plans to give everyone a reset, and prepare to set sail on our next cruise in the Spring of 2020. We know you all like to plan ahead and so do we! This will give us all ample time to prep for what we all hope will be the greatest cruise ever and in the most optimum weather!
We can't wait to release our new music on the Hangin' Tough Re-issue this March and kick off this tour in May 2019. It's going to be an epic journey together with you filled with new memories. We will announce further information on our 2020 Cruise XI at a later date — most likely towards the end of this year. We will see all of your beautiful faces at the Mixtape Tour if not sooner
