i wonder if this is really a marketing strategy for coachella island. the cruise "crashes" and BAM, lostchella.
on a boat for a few days with jarvis cocker and james murphy? where do i sign up?
Cruise lines are like hotel chains. I wonder if this ship is a converted motel 6 or a Fairmont. We need a get to know your captain and crew thread started.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
I'm keeping an open mind. The boat looks amazing. And the whole idea that there's no curfew is cool. But I agree about the weirdness of attaching Coachella's name to it... Coachella at Sea, Coachella Europe, Coachella NYC, Coachella Africa. At some point you start to cheapen the brand.
Oh, and I especially like the $200 booking fee. Nevermind.
After crunching some numbers I decided it wasn't worth it. It's pretty ridic that they are charging extra for all of non-buffet restaurants.
Also no happy hour
The thing is, for many people who potentially could afford a spot on this, you'd need to know 2, 3, 4 other people willing to cough up money at the same time, or you have to take on the entire 2-4 person reservation on yourself and hope to scrape up non-flakey people later on to split the cost.
They've lost their shit.

Oh my god. Make it stop.
