R. Kelly announced the "Love Letters" Cruise.

All that time you spent daydreaming about a private Bahamas cruise with R. Kelly is way closer to becoming a reality. Sadly, though, you’ll need to make room in that fantasy for about 3000 other people.

Yep, R. Kelly just announced the “Love Letter Cruise,” a seaside romp with the inimitable crooner which will depart from Miami to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Nassau in the Bahamas. The five-day cruise goes down October 1st-5th, 2012, so on October 6th you’ll be able to die happy.

Here’s their pitch (I love how it sounds like a Showcase Showdown grand prize on The Price is Right):

An exciting time awaits you on Carnival Cruise Line “Destiny”, as R. Kelly presents a fabulous performance, never seen before at SEA. Enjoy delicious cuisines. Work up a sweat at the “Stepping Class”, Sign up for the “12 Play” Basketball Game. Pamper yourself with a massage, and select from more than 20 various games and activities on board, along with special guest artists. Don’t miss this exciting cruise with R. Kelly.

And if you were bidding on this showcase, we’d recommend guessing somewhere between $1499 to $2999, the low and high bookends for the 10 different cabin options on the ship. Knock $250 off that figure if you buy passes by December 17th, 2011.

R. Kelly’s not the only one participating in the nautical madness. Some other musical cruises of note:

Weezer Cruise (Weezer, Dinosaur Jr., Wavves)

Holy Ship! (Skrillex, Diplo, Steve Aoki)

Bruise Cruise (Fucked Up, Vivian Girls)
