While late February is the slowest time of year for most NFL players, members of the Steelers didn’t have any time for breaks during the Legends of Pittsburgh cruise.

The Legends of Pittsburgh cruise is a vacation experience that gives fans the opportunity to party with past and present Pittsburgh media icons. Athletes and artists from across the city gathered for this five-day getaway that sails from Florida to Mexico, one that offers dozens of up-close and personal events.

One event that wasn’t expected, though, was this:

The Legends of Pittsburgh cruise features a list of current Steelers besides Deebo: Antonio Brown, Chris Boswell, Shamarko Thomas and Roosevelt Nix all are advertised on the cruise’s website. Former Steelers greats on the cruise include Rocky Bleier, Dermontti Dawson, Frenchy Fuqua, Chris Hoke, Louis Lipps, Greg Lloyd and Antwaan Randle El. Current WDVE Steelers analyst Tunch Ilkin is serving as the cruise’s host.

No official announcement has been made regarding the well-being of the sixteen passengers, but based on Harrison’s photos, everyone seems to be in good condition. Given the geography of the situation, many are assuming that the stranded boaters were Cuban migrants. This has not been confirmed.

Harrison likely beats up sharks for fun. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that AB can walk on water either. Perhaps the only thing deeper than the ocean is the pit of sadness in the hearts of Bengals fans.

The cruise is expected to return back to Miami, Florida this Monday, February 29th.
