Just in time to cure your snow-congested wintertime blues, New Kids on the Block announced that their annual blowout vacation cruise is coming back in 2016.

The NKOTB Cruise, which band-member Jordan Knight called “an insane five-day party,’’ has been a tradition since it kicked off in 2009. The day-into-night festivities have cocktails, costumes, selfies, amazing weather — and it all takes place in the presence of the Boston-bred boy band.

It’s basically Coachella, but for Blockheads.

The boat will voyage October 20 to 24, from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico. Pre-sale tickets for Block Nation are on sale today, January 27 at 10 a.m., and for past cruisers and guests at 12 p.m. General sale begins Thursday, January 28 at 12 p.m. See for more details.
