Event producer and promoter Beth Mays said “I could not be more excited to present this incredible lineup on this first-ever event for the United States. The level of talent in each of these bands, little less combining them into one event is really going to make this vacation/concert special for any fan. Space onboard is very limited and fans should plan to book early or they may find themselves missing the boat literally.”

“Crimson Glory is honored to be headlining the inaugural US Triton Power Cruise alongside Evergrey, Jon Oliva's Pain, Seven Witches, and Circle II Circle in April 2010.” said an excited Jon Drenning, guitarist for Crimson Glory. “We have much respect and admiration for the aforementioned bands, and we consider it a privilege to be a part of this unique show; indeed, we are looking forward to kicking ass with our longtime friends included on the roster. This will be a cruise to remember, and we know that fans of this genre will not want to miss an opportunity to be up close and personal with a great selection of some of their favorite bands. Palm trees, salty breeze and METAL on the high seas: we dare you to dream up a better vacation! So grab your flip-flops and ice cold margaritas, and climb aboard -- we're setting sail for the Bahamas! “

"When Beth asked us to join Triton Power Cruise we did not need to think for long before saying yes. We have played numerous cruises before but nothing this cool and the thought of mixing metal and Caribbean nights works extremely well in my mind” said Tom Englund of Evergrey. “I cannot tell you how much we are looking forward to the event and also the chance to watch other bands, hanging with the fans, as well as getting to see a part of the world we never visited before."
