For Bahamas, there are still 2 person interior staterooms for $750 (plus $200) a head and 3 person rooms with ocean view for the same price. For Jamaica, there are only veranda rooms left for 3-4 people starting at $1100 (+200) and 2 guest inside state rooms for $900 (plus 200) a pop. I guess "weekend 2" is the popular option, for once. I guess the Bahamas would be your best bet since you'd just need one more person. Come on, gang. Someone get in on this.

I understand that but when I go and say its just me and pair me up, the cheapest option I get is $1200 plus fees, whereas if I book with two people on my own im given the$900 plus fees. hence my confusion.

08-01-2012, 04:10 AM
You may be going alone, but you won't be lonely on this. I went to Glastonbury and Primavera alone and had the greatest times. One of the many people I met at Primavera is one of my roomies for this. Hope that helps.

I know it's a horrible idea for my bank account, but there's so much potential for this to be the best vacation ever. Four days of overindulging in all these pleasures without the hassle of camping or commuting? Yes, please. I just hope the longer set time promise means full Pulp sets. They were doing such a stellar job of mixing up their setlists on that blip of an American tour, after all. Also curious and a bit nervous about the whole signing up for the gigs thing.

brokenarrow

If it ends up going down that way, they'll have found a way to handle this situation worse than ATP did with Jeff Mangum last year. If you buy a ticket to an event, you should be reasonably able to catch any artist performing at that event.

You will certainly have the opportunity to choose to see every artist at least once.

Not sure how the numbers make that possible, but there it is.

Somewhat Damaged
08-02-2012, 03:13 PM
They're only guaranteeing the opportunity to choose. If you don't attempt to choose before all the allotted space is taken, sucks for you, but they still presented the opportunity.

Drinkey McDrinkerstein
08-02-2012, 04:00 PM
Also, has it been explicitly stated that they are selling the entire capacity to festival goers? Is that listed capacity for patrons only or does it also include employees and crew? Sure this boat has several hundred people just working on it.

Boourns
08-02-2012, 06:38 PM
Pulp already confirmed they will be playing 4 sets on the cruises, not 6, and the FAQ says most will play twice and doesn't say anything about thrice and beyond. The ship's listed capacity of 2886 passengers is in addition to the 1250 crew members.

Boourns
08-02-2012, 07:06 PM
They're only guaranteeing the opportunity to choose. If you don't attempt to choose before all the allotted space is taken, sucks for you, but they still presented the opportunity.

Oh God, that would be some bullshit.

If the cruises aren't packed, then I guess it would be a non-issue. So far, the inside staterooms are gone, the 3 guest ocean view rooms are gone (but not the 2 guest), and all the veranda price levels seem to be available. 85% of the cabins on the ship have verandas, though, so it's hard to tell how those are selling. Since there's been so much backlash, maybe it won't sell out at all?

getbetter
08-02-2012, 08:35 PM
I wonder how many times black lips will play? I am sure ill see every act i want to see.I mean how many crazy pulp fans will actuslly be on this boat.

Bumblebee
08-02-2012, 08:47 PM
Celebrity Silhouette capacity: 2886 passengers
Sihouette theater capacity: 1115 passengers

So PULP can theoretically only play to 2230 of the 2886 passangers per trip.

656 attendees will be shut out if it's sold out or they care about PULP or other higher billed acts.

I'm not going but I'm wondering how many of the 2886 "passengers" are band members and their immediate crew that would be different than other cruises head counts. I'm also wondering if some people might "scalp" their spot/ticket so super fans could see them twice.

brokenarrow
08-03-2012, 05:29 AM
With such a small line-up it's possible for every band to perform a set every day of each cruise. Which is what I thought was going to happen. But let's see how this will go.

I might be restating some obvious bits here but:

FYI - I chatted a representative and they said that they will be taking it out automatically on the 16th of every month (I thought I originally read they would take it out on the 15th). If you go in and make a payment manually before the 16th, they won't charge you twice but if you wait, they'll take it out automatically on the 16th. Just...putting that out there.

Also - we can't bring food or drink (even cases of water [aka-liquor]) onto the boat which surprised me. Guess that means we'll have to stay sober the entire 4 days, huh?!

SilverL90
08-27-2012, 10:03 AM
I've only been to landchella once and it was this past April. We had an amazing time (probably in the top 10 list of life experiences)! So when we saw this announcement, we had been wanting to go on a cruise as a group but not necessarily a family-type cruise (what with all those pesky children clogging up the walkways) so we thought this would be perfect! I don't think I'm super stoked on the lineup, more just for the experience, but honestly, I wasn't stoked for the landchella lineup and it ended up being awesome so I'm sure I'll be eating my words by the end of the trip!

Don't forget you want to get a direct flight in case of where ever you have a layoff there's the possibly of delays during the holiday season and depending how close to boarding time is to landing. I almost got a flight booked with Spirits Airlines based out of FLL since they're really cheap. Yet I started thinking about what they are going be able to provide to me as a customer and what not.Anyways I'm really excited to be down to my last payment and have my airline ticket done with.

I did the first half on JetBlue using points and the second half on Virgin America paid for to earn more points. We are flying out of LAX but have a 3.5 hour drive to get there. Both flights are nonstop which is a good idea when trying to arrive for a cruise. But we are flying in two days early to play around in FLL.

I went on JamCruise this past January- first cruise I'd ever been on, and this will be my second. I couldn't imagine doing a regular cruise (kids, lame entertainment, fellow cruisers that I couldn't relate to), so I was insanely excited when this was announced and I couldn't pass it up. But the idea that we have to sign up to see shows is really confusing to me. On Jamcruise there were 3 different main venues that had music going pretty much all the time and we could go to and from any show we wanted to. I do not think it would be possible to control who gets in to each show and who doesn't. Maybe in the theater but even that would be a stretch. They are making this seem like it's going to super organized, but this is a festival on a ship with a bunch of crazy party people, so they really should give up on that idea.

Also- there was a 24/7 buffet on that ship, and from what I'm reading on here, that is not going to be the case on this cruise. Kinda blows but apparently there is free 24hour room service!

I am surprised there isn't more people talking about this, and even more surprised by the lack of info coming from the people who are organizing it. Does anyone know how long we will be in port in the Bahamas? I'd like to go ahead and schedule an excursion but can't really do that until I find out how long we will be there.

Also, a bit of advice- I had previously been on small boats and never got sick, however I was terribly seasick on the cruise. Unfortunately, taking the meds they give you on the ship really don't work once you already feel sick. If anything they just put me to sleep. This REALLY sucked as it was putting a pretty huge damper on my dream vacation. Despite that, I still managed to have the best time of my life and I'm more than willing to do it again obviously, but this time I'm getting the seasickness patch that goes behind your ear. I highly suggest you do the same, even if you aren't sure if you will get sick or not.

Enough babbling- can't wait to see you all on the ship! 45 days!!!

Misty, I'm pretty excited too. And I can't believe there are not more people talking about it either, and the info is just barely eeking out. I'm waiting on pins and needles for our real confirmation numbers.

I have cruised a lot but this is my first time of doing the music festival thing at sea. I can't wait. I'm not sure how they will work the whole band thing, either. But they must have some sort of method they are working out. I did use my Coachella online account to mark the bands I want to see so maybe eventually we can sign up for days or times.

Regarding the food, there will be food all the time in different venues. I heard that dinner will be all open seating and casual dress in the main dining rooms. The buffets are open all the time and only close for short periods of time for change over (well, this was my experienes on my last 10 cruises). I doubt it will be open in the wee hours, though. But then there are snack areas that have pre-made sandwiches, there is a pizza place (I think there is one on this ship), there's always food. I wouldn't worry about it. And like you said, room service, too.

I have friends who get sea sick and take ginger pills for that. It's natural and won't make you drowsy. They say it works well. I have one friend who eats ginger candy instead of taking the pills. Works great for her. Ginger is a great natural alternative for seasick medications.

Ok, just found out that we should have our real confirmation numbers early next week. Then we can go online and do all that immigration and shipboard account stuff. Yay!!!

I am surprised there isn't more people talking about this, and even more surprised by the lack of info coming from the people who are organizing it. Does anyone know how long we will be in port in the Bahamas? I'd like to go ahead and schedule an excursion but can't really do that until I find out how long we will be there.

We are going in two days early but we are on the Bahamas cruise. Sounds like you got a great deal on a hotel room.

Still no reservation numbers! Now i'm getting antsy. Thanks for the tip on the ginger- I've had luck with it in the past with car sickness so I hope it can handle a boat.

33 days!!!!

I may be in for the cruise, most likely Bahamas based on the dates, but we may decide to do Jamaica. Ironing out some details to see if it will work out!

We are at the Embassy Suites on 17th. I like free breakfast in the monring and free booze in the afternoon. LOL And they are also offering a $50 resort credit right now and rates just dropped $20/night yesterday. I almost booked us at the W using my travel agent discount, but for the two nights we are staying, Embassy suites made more sense.

If it's the embassy suites I'm thinking of (About two blocks from the port entrance?), I have stayed there before. There's a badass Irish Pub across the street and a pretty sweet sports bar across the other street. In the Publix shopping center.

Yup, that's the one. We like the location, close to restaurants, bars, liquor store, grocery store, etc. I think we can walk to a water taxi stop too. The rooms are not the fanciest but they are comfy and have the living room and wet bar area. And the pool is nice.

My Wife and I are going to the Bahamas Cruise :) can't wait! Just out of curiosity does anybody have any tips or ideas of where or how to kill time between 6 am on Sunday, day of the cruise, and 3 pm when we board!

So i'm flying in on December 19th for the Jamaica Cruise my flight says it should land at like around 10. Boarding doesn't start till 10, was wondering if anyone knows the logistics of the port area, can i just go to a bar around there and wait? Are any of you fine people meeting up before boarding?

We're on the first leg - thought long and hard about doing Jamaica but couldn't shake the "sloppy seconds" thought. Arriving Saturday staying at the Aqua Hotel.

Any drinks planned for Saturday night?
