Mark McGrath Cancels Cruise, Citing 'Poop' Ship
"Recent public events" help sink singer's nostalgia cruise
Sugar Ray singer/television personality Mark McGrath's 90s nostalgia cruise has been cancelled, according to its official website, and McGrath offered an awfully "stinky" excuse via Twitter.
The cruise was supposed to set sail from Oct. 18 to 21 of 2013, from Miami, FL to Nassau of the Bahamas, with 90s rock acts like McGrath's Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, Spin Doctors, and the Gin Blossoms performing. Instead, the official site today announced "The Mark McGrath & Friends Cruise Has Been Cancelled," offering no other explanation.
McGrath dug a little deeper on Twitter, essentially blaming the cancellation on "recent public events," aka, "that poop cruise."

@fuckthefalcons my apologies, I'm really bummed as well...that poop cruise did us no favors— mark mcgrath (@mark_mcgrath) February 28, 2013
McGrath was referring to this month's nautical fiasco, which left a Carnival cruise ship without running water and smelling of human waste for nearly a week after an engine fire knocked out its power.
McGrath had been hyping the cruise on his official website as recently as Jan. 29, mentioning promotional appearances he'd been making.
