Each island stop on these cruises brings a different Spring Break experience:
Located on the southeastern shore of Florida, Miami has miles and miles of Instagram worthy beaches. It’s amazing mixture of beach and city vibes make it a perfect spring break location. Miami has something for everyone, from the local shore front bars to extravagant night life. Miami is home to some of the craziest clubs that are sure to make your stay worthwhile every day of the week. This thriving city is full of places to explore before your cruise and keep the party going after!
Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas
The first stop when cruising on the Norwegian Sky. The Grand Bahama Island is the northernmost island of the Bahamas, located just 54 miles from the southern tip of Florida. Covered by miles of sand, shopping, and beachfront bars you won’t be bored on this island. Enjoy your day by soaking up the sun while sipping on Bahama Breeze or see how much money you can make for more drinks at one of their casinos. Wander through the colorful towns and party with the locals!
In Nassau, hop off either cruise ship, smell the salty air, then head straight into Señor Frog’s (or any of the water front bars that are just a steps away from port).You’ll feel like you’re in a computer screensaver because of all the white sand and crystal water you’re surround by. Indulge in rum punches out of a coconut on Junkanoo Beach and maybe, if you’ve had just enough to drink, compete your Spring Break look with hair braids or henna tattoos.
Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas
Spring Break like a celebrity on Great Stirrup Cay, a private island paradise just for the Norwegian Sky ship passengers! Every picture will be the perfect one with a beach like this. The unlimited street tacos are the perfect cure to your hangover and the pick me up you need to start drinking again! Just like on board, DRINKS ARE FREE! DJ’s and live music are constantly playing from all of the 4 bars on the island. Nothing beats the piña coladas from the Bacardi bar. Chill with your friends in the beachfront cabanas or lounge chairs before you have one last party on board!
The fun doesn’t stop when you step off the ship. CocoCay is the picturesque private island for Mariner of the Seas guests. Spend your day taking advantage of the water sports/activities they offer. Scope out the perfect beach spot from above as you parasail over the island or race through clear waters on a jet ski. Grab a floaty and plop yourself right next to the floating bar so you never have to leave the water for a refill! Bring a speaker and lounge like a VIP in the private cabanas as you sip your drink out of a pineapple. All bars on the island honor the unlimited drink package so never worry about running out of money for drinks!
When you disembark at the end of the week you’ll be wishing you could do it all over again. You and your friends will leave with a 10/10 tan, the best Bahamian rum, and plenty of stories to tell (if you can remember)!
