If there’s anyone in the NFL fit to host a party on a cruise ship, it would be New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. That’s exactly what’s happening this weekend on the Norwegian Pearl — known for the next few days as the “Gronk Party Ship” — as it embarks from Miami on what is sure to be a memorable trip to the Bahamas and a private island, which has been renamed “Gronk Island” (because of course it has).

Rob and brothers Chris, Glenn and Gordie — the fifth brother, Dan, reportedly opted out because his wife is pregnant and didn’t want to risk catching the Zika virus — are hosting the shindig, which departed Friday, and have several celebrities accompanying them, including Flo Rida and Waka Flocka Flame.

So far, the party is exactly what you’d expect from Gronk and Co.





While the festivities appear to be mostly non-stop if tracking social media, there have been some down moments.

Former Terrapins defensive lineman Dean Muhtadi, who goes by Mojo Rawley in WWE circles, is also attendance. Muhtadi played with two of the Gronkowski brothers, Dan and Chris, at Maryland. He’s on the left of this action photo posted by DJ Whoo Kid.


The Boston Globe has two writers covering the event, so if you want to feel like you’re actually partying with the Gronks, take a trip to James Reed and Christopher Muther‘s Twitter timelines. It’s worth it.
