    Default 200$???

    The cruise price does not include taxes, gratuity and booking fees ($200 per person added at check out), air/ground transportation, shore excursions, some beverages (such as alcohol, soft drinks and bottled water), photographs, medical services, spa services, specialty dining, etc.

    Yeah, its a standard fucking cruise.

    Save your money and just go on a real cruise. Maybe just book your cruise around a band's tour to the Carribean. The Biebz was at the Bahamas Atlantis' last time I was there. Baby, baby, baby OH!

    So how does this price compare to a regular four to five day cruise to the Bahamas? I want to go on a cruise at one point in my life but is Coachella bending us over here?

    If there are four of you to an interior phone booth, you can get as low as $500 + $200 per person, yea?

    Yes, they are. The $200 extra fee? Fuck that. Usually a cabin can run pretty low if you book in advance, also I've spoken with folks who book a cruise the day before or day of and they get RIDICULOUSLY low prices as the ship just wants to fill up as much as possible before it takes off.

    Ships make their money off gambling/alcohol/massages. Usually everything else is free, except for photos, coffee bar and the steak house dinner. Usually they will offer you 3 nights of a "fancy" dinner.

    I should note though, as a Southern Californian, the food at the "fancy places" are shite. Only those used to crappy meals will be impressed.

    There are plenty of "young people" cruises and music cruises are becoming more and more popular, but really I don't give a fuck about meeting James Murphy with another 3000 people who want to meet him. I'm sure he's just going to get drunk and think of the numbers the whole time as people bombard him with trivial bullshit.

    Find a singles cruise if you want to mingle, or a good deal for yourself with your pack. I'd rather be excited to explore the Bahamas/Jamaica without having someone tell me we need to stay near by to see fucking Sleigh Bells.

    Fuck you Goldenvoice for Sleigh Bells and Yeasayer - two of the worst bands I've ever seen at Coachella.

    ah, yeah, this is thread wherein price quotes are determined by whether you smoke pot or not.

    The shopping fits right in with the Coachella demographic.
    Exclusively on Celebrity Silhouette
    Luxurious, new Bulgari and Michael Kors boutiques join an already superb assortment of shops for watches, jewelry, fashions, cosmetics and fragrances onboard Celebrity SilhouetteSM. Find Tag Heuer, Omega, Longines, John Hardy, Tommy Bahama, Nautica, eco-friendly Mad Bags, Calvin Klein, Armani, Versace, D&G by Dolce & Gabbana, and many more exclusive brands without ever leaving the ship. And, did we mention it's all tax and duty-free?

    Wes, thank you for the in-joke of putting the $ sign at the end of the amount in the thread title. Never forget.

    You can go on a longer cruise for the same price, if not a little less if yr good at bargain hunting.

    That's the bummer with these musical cruises, man. I really recommend cruises (because, who doesn't like FREE FOOD 24 HRS A DAY) but...this is definitely pricey.

    So buffet dining is included in the fee, but not booze, soda, or fancier restaurants.

    Apparently it's standard for the high end dining options to be extra on ships like this. The regular dining options on the ship look really good though.

    It's weird that soda isn't included, not that I drink very much of it.

    the $200 is to tip the waiters, room attendents and other staff at the end of the trip. it's standard for any cruise. and you can sneak sodas, beer, alcohol on any ship with hardly any effort. get a box of wine and wrap it, let them know it's a gift for a friend also going on the cruise. get a 12 pack of soda and empty out fill the bottom rows with beer and only fill the top with soda. wrap liquor in your towels in your suitcase. this is what i've done on every cruise and it's never been an issue.
