Mark McGrath Cruise Canceled After Carnival 'Poop Cruise' Fiasco, The '90s Weep

Mark McGrath's '90s nostalgia nautical adventure is no more: The singer canceled the Mark McGrath & Friends Cruise in the wake of the Carnival Triumph disaster that left passengers stranded on a lifeless mega-ship without electricity or running water.

In a series of tweets to disappointed fans (the Sugar Ray fandom remains strong, it seems), McGrath acknowledged that he was torn up about the cancellation but that "the poop cruise did us no favors."

The cruise was set to include Smash Mouth, the Gin Blossoms and Spin Doctors and scheduled for an October journey from Miami to the Bahamas.

In an endearing gesture, the 44-year-old singer has been offering those who had planned on coming aboard the cruise free admission into shows on his upcoming Under the Sun tour:

McGrath's tweets also included a peculiar revelation. Apparently the singer missed the whole "Mad Men" phenomenon that the rest of the nation has been hip to for six years:

All is not lost, however, for aficionados of the '90s. 98 Degrees has confirmed it will release and tour in support of a new album, "2.0." The tour will also include New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men.
