Videos: Rob Gronkowski's Gronk Party Ship is every bit as wild as you'd imagine

NFL star Rob Gronkowski definitely subscribes to the mantra of work hard, play hard.

The New England Patriots beast is on pace to be the greatest tight end to ever play the position, but is equally adored by NFL fans for his often hilarious off-the-field antics, from his late night chat show appearances to his way with the ladies.

So when he announced that his offseason relaxation programme would involve a three-day cruise on the Gronk Party Ship that includes performances from a host of rappers, including Flo Rida, tickets were quickly snapped up by fans hoping to get a piece of a potentially legendary Gronkowski bro-down.

Naturally, while Gronk's boat shares many of the qualities of Las Vegas, the famous 'What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas' slogan is certainly not in force here.

Here's a half-naked Gronk on the dancefloor...

There is a full troupe of dancers on hand to back him up...

Gronk has three of his four brothers on hand - poor Glenn is busy preparing for this week's NFL Combine and is missing the fun - and his Dad, and Papa Gronk is more than willing to join in the craic, although he does at least appear fonder of keeping his top on.

Although this is where we begin to wonder whether a three-day frat party in the Bahamas is really such a good idea...

Although for at least one couple, the sight of all the hardcore partying was the inspiration for a surprise proposal.

Because romance.
