Donnie Wahlberg and the rest of the New Kids on the Block crew will be hitting the high seas in a new reality show — set on a boat cruise — for the TV Guide Channel.

The network announced on Tuesday that it will be bringing the eight-episode series, titled “Rock This Boat: NKOTB,” to the small screen.

The show will follow a week-long “vacation of the lifetime” where the boy band gets to party like it’s 1984 while they’re out at sea with a number of their adoring fans.

“Rock This Boat” will also get a 30-minute casting special, according to Deadline.

There is no word yet on when the series will premiere.
