Many of this year's biggest music festivals haven't even happened yet — Coachella, Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, and Lollapalooza are still on the docket for 2013 — but the organizers behind Holy Ship!!! are already eyeing dates for 2014.

According to a press release, the next Holy Ship!!! cruise will set sail from the Port of Miami and hit the high seas from January 9 to 12, 2014. EDM fans will also get to ride aboard the MSC Divina, the newest ship in the MSC fleet. An official statement from the Holy Ship!!! organizers revealed that the cruise liner — one class larger than the MSC Poesia, which hosted Holy Ship! in 2012 and Holy Ship!! in 2013 — is actually named after Italian actress Sophia Loren. (Sure, Loren may have already earned a Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award and worked with Robert Altman, but now she's inspired the name of a cruise ship that could potentially host a Major Lazer-sponsored booty-popping contest! Ms. Loren, you have finally arrived.)

Promoters promise that the MSC Divina will bring "all the elegance and glamor of the golden age of sea travel in a new vision" and will serve as "the perfect backdrop [for a] floating EDM utopia." Watch a video tour of the Divina up top to get a peek at the ship's pools, cabins, casino, jacuzzis, bars, tanning beds, and super-fancy elevators.

A lineup for next year's Holy Ship!!! will be announced in the coming weeks. Past rosters have featured Major Lazer, Justice, Boys Noize, Knife Party, Fatboy Slim, A-Trak, and Skrillex.
