Paramore is back and busier than ever. The band just completed its first destination cruise with fans (cleverly dubbed Parahoy!), which included four days and nights aboard the Norwegian Pearl, sailing from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas.

Fans enjoyed two outdoor shows by Paramore, a Q&A on the cruise ship's deck, and myriad onboard activities while sailing to the Bahamas. Other acts included Tegan and Sara and New Found Glory. Next, Paramore will prepare for a joint summer tour with Fall Out Boy, which kicks off on June 19 and hits Red Rocks on August 12.
