Pandora Cruise 2014 Announcement

pandora-cruise-coverBreaking news tonight as the Pandora Cruise 2014 information has just been updated!  Lots of anxious fans have been waiting for this announcement and it comes a bit later than last year’s.  The 3rd Annual Pandora Unforgettable Cruise will be setting sail from April 6 – 13, 2014 on the Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas!  I’m so excited that this will be a tour around the West Caribbean islands including Haiti, Jamaica, and Cozumel, Mexico.  I haven’t seen Haiti or Jamaica so I was hoping that it would be this area of the Caribbean.

rates-2014The boat will be setting sail from Fort Lauderdale, FL again and the itinerary looks identical to the one from earlier this year, with Pandora events on the boat during the sailing days and then 3 destinations to visit and shop.  If you’re curious about the events, check out Pandora Cruise to review my live posts while underway.  Unfortunately, it costs more than this year’s cruise, about an additional 10%, probably because the Allure of the Seas is the newest ship from Royal Caribbean and it’s also the biggest as one of the Oasis Class.  A $250/person deposit is required upon registration with the final payment due January 14th, 2014.  Guests must register through the website to participate in the Pandora events and receive the Pandora swag.

My husband and I had an amazing time at this year’s and I felt that most of the kinks had been ironed out from the inaugural trip.  There’s still plenty of time to decide, but space is limited and on a first come first served basis.  We had ~200 Pandora addicts on the 2013 Cruise and with the bigger ship, it might mean that the group size will be increased as well.  I’m hoping to go again and see friends I’ve made from the cruise and meet new people!  Have you been considering the Pandora Cruise?  Will you be onboard next year?

    oh wow i want to go so bad not sure if i can afford this though, going on the disney cruise the first week of January, is that the final price or there are other fees and taxes too?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

    • Leann

      It is the total but also price is per person, yikes!

      • nelia almeida

        ya i figured it was per person too bad its not per couple…a little pricey for sure really hope i can make it, do you know if theres a cut off date that we can book

      • Leann

        It is a bit pricey :/, there’s a slight markup to sign up with the Pandora group vs. just booking the cruise yourself, but it includes all the activities, drinks, swag, etc. I believe the cutoff will be the final payment date, January 14th.

    Oh no…I will be in Whistler B.C. from March 29 to April 12 2014….Grrrrr

    • Leann

      Oh no! 🙁 That’s too bad, is it a skiing vacation?

  • Elyse

    I have been to this area via cruise already so I’ll pass. Would need to be a new destination area for me. You’ll love cozumel LOTS of shopping right off the dock area. For my hubbies 40th I rented him a motorcycle to see the island that way and he loved it. From what he saw & what I saw(shops only) I think he may have had the better island view.
    Hope all who go enjoy and have an excellant, safe cruise.

    • Leann

      That sounds like fun! The first Pandora cruise went to Cozumel so we ended up spending the entire port call at the stores. I think this time we’ll skip the shops and go on an expedition. I really wanted to see the ruins last time but we definitely didn’t have enough time to do shopping and explore so I’m very excited! I’ve never been to Jamaica or Haiti so I’m happy it’s this leg of the Caribbean :).

      I hope to see you some time! 😀

  • Ashley

    I’m really wanting to get my gang of girls together and go on this! I’ve always wanted to go but every year something came up and wasn’t able to commit. Hopefully, this next year will be THE year! 🙂

    • Leann

      Omg, that would be amazing!! I hope you can make it, Ashley :D.

  • Nadia Thomas

    Do I have to go through Royal or can I go through delta SKYMILES cruises? Would it make a diff? I’d like to some miles outta this

    • Leann

      You have to register through the Cruise Planners website to participate in the events and get the swag. 🙁

  • michaele

    I’m going to try to send my husband in my place 🙂 I don’t do cruise lines…..EVER

    • Leann

      Good luck! I hope your husband is a good sport :).

  • Lena

    I want to go on this with my future hubby once we’re married. I think it would be fantastic! I LOVE Pandora!

    • Leann

      That would be perfect, it’s a nice vacation for couples! 🙂

    Hi Leann
    I know I can’t go on the cruise. But, Hum, Ok I know that , Pandora Crusie sell’s a special charm, would you be allowed to get charms for other people. A pre-order or a gift order. Thanks very much :0

    • Leann

      Aww, too bad :(. The cruise charms are not available for order, they’re given out one each with the swag bags.

  • Littlevoice

    Hi I am a single disabled lady in the UK and would love to know if this cruise, (well 2015 now as i’ve missed this one), would it be suitable for me and my wheelchair or mobility scooter if available?

    • Leann

      Yes, the ship is ADA compatible! ADA is the American Disability Act that governs how buildings and facilities are constructed to accommodate handicapped people. 🙂

  • Halle

    Any word on 2015 yet?

    • Leann

      Not yet, maybe next month.
