I'm not too sure about that. Even with Mike Portnoy's name and influence behind it, the Progressive Nation At Sea cruise failed. I doubt a Dream Theater-headed cruise would fare much better.
You can't compare the success of individual band members to that of their main/original bands. You see Steve Harris and Vince Neil playing the monsters of rock cruise and getting only marginal attention for it. I'm sure it would be a much different story if that were Maiden or Crue.
