That's right, folks. Paramore announced today that in March of next year, the band will be embarking on a four day excursion from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay - a private island in the Bahamas! And of course, it's right in the middle of my Spring Break.
Sounds crazy, right?
The price of the trip includes a 4 night luxury cruise, 2 Paramore shows (with Tegan and Sara!), a handful of other shows by other bands to be announced in the future, activites with the band, a Q&A, probably an all you can eat buffet somewhere in there.... I could go on, but I'm sure you get the gist. (C'mon guys, have you heard of The Weezer Cruise?)
But of course, something to this spectacular of an extent has a price tag. Starting rates per person for a basic double occupancy room are $650 plus $215 in taxes and fees, and of course there's always the cost of airfare to get yourself to Miami in the first place. When all is said and done, the rates actually come out to be fairly decent* for the price of a 4 day cruise, let alone a 4 day cruise with Paramore! The deposit is $150 and if you sign up for the presale, you will have first priority when booking your room.
After reading the fine print (more details will be announced in early September!), you DO need to be at least 21 to travel unaccompanied, otherwise you need to travel with someone 25 or older. Quite a bit frustrating if you ask me, considering my 21st birthday is a month after the ParaCruise.
EDIT: The age policy was changed and if you are under 21, you need to sail with someone 21+!
What are your thoughts on Parahoy? Are you going to try and go?
*There will be some kind of payment plan in place to be announced later, so don't stress about having to cough up $715 all at once!
