*311 indoor shows at the Palladium Theatre will be ticketed by zone. It is GA within each zone. When you book your cabin, you will get to select your zone preference, per availability. The earlier you book your cabin the better chance you have at getting a ticket in your desired zone. Your show ticket will have your zone # printed on it. The venue is only 1,400 capacity, so everyone is going to have a great location to enjoy the show!

311 SETLISTS – WE’RE TAKING REQUESTS!
311 wants to know what songs you want them to play on the cruise. Everyone that buys a ticket for the cruise will get to submit a song request in advance.
