Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee ZZ Top is one of the big names on a special 'Rock Legends Cruise' setting sail for the Bahamas from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. in December 2011.

The five-day sailing on Royal Caribbean's 3,634-passenger Liberty of the Seas departs on Dec. 1 with stops in Nassau and Coco Cay, Royal Caribbean's private island in the Bahamas, reports USA Today.

The Native American Heritage Association is organizing the trip and part of the ticket fee will go to supporting programs for Sioux Native Americans living on reservations in South Dakota.

Other rockers on the cruise include George Thorogood and The Destroyers, John Kay and Steppenwolf, The Marshall Tucker Band, Dickey Betts & Great Southern, Foghat, Johnny Winter, Molly Hatchet, The Outlaws, Blackfoot, Pat Travers and SwampDaWamp.

Most bands will play two to three times at four different venues on board with an open festival-style admission, allowing passengers to come and go as they like.

ZZ Top is the one exception. The 'sharp dressed men' will perform three nights and each passenger will get one ticket to one show.

"We are very excited to be offering music fans and friends a unique opportunity to experience five days of brilliant musical performances from these true Rock Legends in a setting that is without equal. Our hope is that this innovative approach to fundraising will increase our ability to serve Native American communities in need ten fold," says David G. Myers, the association's president.
