The Rock Boat XII will sail March 1-5, 2012, on the Carnival Ecstasy from New Orleans to Cozumel. Acts include hosts Sister Hazel, along with Alternate Routes, Tim Brantley, Carbon Leaf, Freddy Jones Band, Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers, and Vertical Horizon.

The return to New Orleans is a special one for veteran Rock Boaters. In 2005, The Rock Boat V was canceled in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and in response, Sixthman organized "Rock For Relief," featuring many of the bands who had been scheduled for the cruise, to raise funds for residents of New Orleans.
