Next February might seem like it’s a long way off, but it’s never too soon to start making plans. Especially if they include joining Patty Griffin, John Prine, Steve Earle and a bunch of other great musicians for Cayamo 2011.
The voyage begins at the Port of Miami, where you’ll board the Norwegian Pearl on February 13 and sail off into the Eastern Caribbean for a week of sun, music, fun, music, food, music, friends – and did I mention music?
Also scheduled to be on board for the 24-hour party so far are Indigo Girls and Buddy Miller. Organizers of the cruise promise that they’re going to spend the next few months “filling the ship with more of your favorite artists!”
Prices for the trip, which returns to port February 20, start at $1099 per person (based on double occupancy) plus $225 per person for taxes and fees. Gratuities will be charged to your onboard Sail & Sign account in the amount of $12 per person per day.
That might sound like a lot of money, but you just try to get to 20 or 30 concerts AND take a 7-day Caribbean cruise for less than $1500. Good luck.
Plus, to make it easier on the budget organizers are offering some pretty sweet payment plans. For Interior and Oceanic View cabins you’ll need to put down $199 per person when you book, followed by $299 per person by June 10, then $399 per person by August 10 and the balance by November 10.
For Balcony Cabins and Suites $399 per person is required when you book, with $499 per person due by June 10, then $599 per person due by August 10 and the balance by November 10.
Pre-sale bookings are currently being taken through March 28 for those who’ve previously sailed with Cayamo, with spots opening up to the general public after March 30.
