i'm still sorting through the pictures from my trip to the Bahamas on the SS Coachella. i did something different this time. i made a slide show of the pictures i intend on posting for Day 1. The resolution is crummier, but it was easy to do, so:

Pictures will be put up the traditional way as well at some point.

i started a flickr set:

SS Coachella 2012: Bahamas (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ivankay/sets/72157632314138011/)

Mostly the same pics from the slide show, but they stay still. Here's some:

A lot of suites has verandas. It was great and we had breakfast on it a couple of times.

Walking around the first day before departure i saw a lot of people performing on the boat. It was a bit crowded by the bar to take pics. When i broke free, saw Killer Mike, El P and friends.

Everyone on the boat had to go to a safety meeting to learn how to get on these.

The elevators were a major part of the trip. You could run into someone playing on the boat or just get that minor connection with fellow passengers.

The line to get into the Silhouette Theater before Yeasayer. i went to dinner with my girl and we ended up catching only the last couple of songs. Should have allocated more time for dinner, but it was fun. No pics of dinner because i have to put the camera down sometimes.

Great photos. Too bad you couldn't do the Jamaica cruise. The extra day felt essential and we also had more surprise activities like the Jarvis lecture and karaoke.

And yes, it was very special. So easy and so much to see and do, and the crowd size was perfect. Well, not perfect for GV, but the intimacy was priceless. Good luck not running into all the people you met.

Those are awesome. After looking at those, i am ashamed to have not been familiar with the photographer, Greg Cristman. This guy is becoming one of my new heroes. Thanks for sharing that.

Thanks. i hope you checked out the photographer's website (linked in the article). Lots of great stuff.


OK fine I'm officially jealous.

i wish you were there. Hopefully the cruises become an annual thing and all future goers have wonderful experiences.


YES! Nice work all around, Mike! You never fail to make me totally jealous I've missed something special.

Thanks Crispin. i hope i captured the vibe, but i know i missed capturing so much. Like all Coachellas, i wish there was another me. It was special and i also wish you could have been there to enjoy it. i feel very fortunate to have been on that first cruise.

my girl had a cloud of sadness over her when she heard about the Jarvis lecture. She's a huge fan (but i tell her you are number 1 in that book). we could only get in the first leg of the trip and were sooo sad to leave the Silhouette. i did have a legitimate fear staying on the boat for both trips would prompt my stomach to explode at the midway point the 2nd journey.

Here's a few from the end of my Day 1 with Cloud Nothings. Loved them. The sound was clean and loud. Hope they will be at the Polo Fields:

This is the library. If you wanted your peace in a quieter and more isolated fashion, many spots could be found. Being only a few minutes from your room was a pleasure the whole experience.

Quick stop by the Buffet before the show. Leaving the buffet we encounter Jarvis for the first time as he and friends are walking in. we get to tell him how awesome the show was.

My room was down the hall from the hideaway. Never made it to the library, unfortunately.

I went the RV route at Sasquatch, which was heavenly compared to camping but still a couple miles walk away, much of which was uphill. At ATP I was just four blocks down the street, and at Primavera I was at a hostel 5 minutes away from a subway, and as much as I thought all these spoiled me, nothing compares to getting from my room after a nap and shower to the Sky Lounge or buffet in three minutes.

01-04-2013, 10:02 AM
Yes. we had brief encounters with Jarvis a couple of times (buffet and the James Murphy dj set) and James Murphy at the wine tasting. Pretty much anyone that was playing on the boat i walked by at certain points. Be scooting through people at one of the bars and there was Alexis from Hot Chip. Walking to see a show and Black Lips were hanging in some lawn chairs. Get in an elevator and there's Grimes. Do i have pictures? Not really unless they were unintentionally in the backgrounds of wide shots. Of course i got pictures of my girl with Jarvis and James. Reading what other people have written, most had friendly encounters.

i didn't know i was missing this boat in my life until it happened. we did the breakfast on our veranda 2 out of the 3 days. If you were proactive, you filled out a little menu and put it outside your door before 1AM. They would bring the breakfast to you at you requested time. If you didn't do that, just call room service and it was at the door 45 minutes later. And thank you.

Wow! These photos are stunning and take me right back to my fondest memories of the cruise. I thought my iphone photos would suffice, but your photos really capture the spirit and mood of the trip. You must have been standing right by me at Pulp because the photos look like they were all taken from the same location I was. I even found myself in your photo of the crowd waiting for the show to start... I think you were in the same row as me. Funny. Thanks for sharing these.

Thank you. The best compliments i get include "spirit and mood". Getting the vibe is one of my main goals. Pulp was awesome. we had great seats.


Coachella should be comping you a room next year, Ivan.... this is the most effective advertising ever.

i will definitely accept the invitation if offered. One of the best trips i ever took.


its really amazing how well the Coachella culture translates to a cruise, or at least the way you presented it. Sun or Shade, Afternoon DJs, Merch, Naps, Sunsets, and we all know what comes next! I think I will go next year.

It felt like a Coachella on a boat. Just not as many acts or stages, but the super comfy poshness made up for that. my negative experiences on the boat equaled nada.

more pics (sorry about the lag, been busy):

There were upper tier restaurants on the boat that cost extra. This is Qsine (http://www.celebritycruises.com/onboard/level3Type1.do?pagename=onboard_celebrity_restaura nts_cafes_qsine&parentpage=onboard_celebrity_restaurants_cafes). we ate there and it was $40 each. The food was all over the place as far as types go and it was delicious. we ordered too much and our waiter asked us if we wanted our last course (tacos) and we had to decline due to being stuffed.

Tuscan Grille (http://www.celebritycruises.com/onboard/level3Type1.do?pagename=onboard_celebrity_restaura nts_cafes_tuscan_grille_restaurant&parentpage=onboard_celebrity_restaurants_cafes) was $30 a person. we were considering it, but time was not on our side.

These came from a cool bar called Molecular Bar. They were under the $12 price so were part of the drink package. i took my drink into the Desert Sessions and this guy looks at me and says "Black Mamba, yeah!" It was tasty.

Wow. Thanks ivankay. I've loved your photo's each year after the Festival but these past couple set of pictures in this thread actually makes me want to go to this if they offer it next year. Look like a blast It might offer some relaxation before this line-up wait. Haha. Kudos man. Can't wait to see your pics from 2013.

Thanks. It was my first cruise and i was happily surprised by the modern poshness of the ship. Cost vary on the rooms (http://ss.coachella.com/reservations/stateroom-pricing) and what you want to do. we did it for under $4,000.

A couple days ago I looked back through old emails and saw that tickets for SS Coachella went on sale this time of the year which is making me think it isn't happening again. :( Or if it is, it won't be in December. What do you think? Was it a one time thing? I would do it again in a heartbeat. Here's hoping...

i wish i knew. Also wish for another cruise because this was one of the best things ever. There's all sorts of talk and theories from those of us that went, but nothing from GV and that make me sad too. i get a little bit of sunshine from an encounter i had with Bill Fold at Coachella. i was super stoked about the ass kicking Franz Ferdinand did and mentioned how awesome it would be to have them on a future cruise. He thought they would be great too. That of course is no confirmation, but at least he didn't say "Too bad there won't be another cruise." Fingers always crossed on this.

So the next day the ship parked in the Bahamas. we slept in since we didn't have an agenda. When we were good and ready, left for a walk around Nassau:

Gunz, i have heard from more than a few who i know would LOVE this if it weren't on a boat. This was my first cruise and i thought it was pretty smooth. i heard the Jamaica portion had a little rough going because of a faster trip back, but i would hope it wasn't anything that would lead to misery.

Frank, we need to go back!! So much missed while so much done. Isn't that the Coachella way?

And the rest....

After food, we went back to our beloved room to pack and rest our bellies. we packed at this time because concierge put up notice our bags could be collected around 11 so we wouldn't have to lug them down the next morning. A lot of people missed this and were lugging the next morning. After nap, take a short walk and elevator ride to see...

I skipped girl talk in favor of karaoke with father john misty, har mar superstar, black lips. Third favorite karaoke session ever. Looks like it was, fun, though. Did this happen at the end of the Bahamas set, too?
IPf8k-zvsQc

The cruise was beautiful and needs to happen again. I don't see them ever topping the last pulp shows as a headliner, but the possibilities for a brilliant lineup are seemingly endless.

Tempting to do the weezer cruise but I wish it had a better lineup and nicer ship.

Beautiful photos, as always.

Wait...WHERE ARE THE WARPAINT SHOTS?

ivankay
08-02-2013, 07:52 PM
That didn't happen during the Bahamas leg. Hilarious. i would have loved to have done both trips, but life's obligations get in the way.

And sadly, but with no regrets missed Warpaint. i was with my girl and we did a lot of the eating meals together and enjoying the many relaxing aspects of our room. we really looked forward to just getting away from werk for a few days and chilling with each other was a primary goal. Missed a few sets as a result. But like i suggested, all was great and we loved the cruise with all of our hearts.

I was in the same ship. It's August already, so we should quit hoping this will happen again? I have no choice but to spend and book the flights for December / Christmas & NYE in Europe now.

I would go again regardless of the lineup / departure port for as long it is another Coachella and Celebrity collaborations. I will never do any other long multi-days ship cruising, not my traveling style. Short river / ship cruises are more up my alley but anytime anywhere with Celebritychella again.

Great pictures, thanks for sharing.
