LOS ANGELES (AP) — Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids On The Block is stuck on a boat with a bride who wants him to officiate her wedding.

New Kids pushed off yesterday on a five-day cruise from New York to Bermuda.

The bride brought her fiancé and her bridesmaids on the cruise.

Among the 3,000 passengers on the ship are two sisters who have a room in Seattle dedicated to New Kids and a group of Scotsmen who want to meet women.

The cruise is being filmed for a reality show called “Rock This Boat: New Kids On The Block” that will run on the TV Guide Network this fall.
