Day 1 - Miami Boarding ship
Arrive at Miami and transfer independently to board the Norwegian Escape cruise ship for a seven-night cruise of the Eastern Caribbean. Set beside the intoxicatingly blue waters of Biscayne Bay, the lively city of Miami revels in the contemporary high-rise of hotels and sophisticated apartments, while the colourful shades of art deco architecture recall the era of Miami’s 1920s. And it’s not just Miami! With so many of Florida’s treasures on the doorstep such as the Florida Keys, the Everglades, Fort Lauderdale, the Kennedy Space Center and Orlando to name but a few, why not treat yourself to a few extra nights by extending your stay either at the start or at the end of your cruise to take in Florida’s hotspots. Depart at 4 pm.
Days 2 & 3 - At Sea
With two days at sea, this is the perfect opportunity to really get to know your cruise ship and take advantage of the excellent facilities. Work up an appetite in the fitness centre or on one of the sports courts or take a dance class before choosing from a choice of the main dining rooms or more casual eateries. If you want to slow the pace down a little then indulge yourself in some spa treatments and at the end of the day, relax in one of the many bars and lounges. Settle in for some big name entertainment from Broadway shows to musical spectaculars or enjoy a flutter on one of the casino games.
Day 4 - St Thomas, American Virgin Islands
Although one of the most multicultural and activity filled of all the Virgin Islands, St Thomas still delivers in bucket loads everything you associate with a secluded Caribbean paradise – sparkling turquoise waters lapping at your feet, colourful coral reefs and sun-kissed white sand. The gorgeous coastline provides a stunning retreat from all the excellent duty-free shopping available including Magens Bay, hailed as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world while Skyline Drive promises breath-taking views of the island 800 feet below.
With a wide choice of excursions on offer you may wish to take in St. Peter Great House and Botanical Gardens, a magnificent Caribbean estate featuring classic Caribbean architecture and vintage furnishings all in the most beautiful, tropical setting. If you are looking for a little bit of adventure, sail on an idyllic cruise along the coast to Abi Beach, only accessible by boat. Take a refreshing swim or rent some snorkelling equipment and discover the abundant sea life. Depart at 6 pm.
Day 5 - Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Big surf, white sand beaches and a collection of lively beach bars make Tortola a popular stop. You can hike to the top of Sage Mountain, tour the botanical gardens or explore the quaint diversions of Road Town, the island’s main settlement. Depart at 3 pm.
Day 6 - At sea
A leisurely day at sea gives you another chance to enjoy your ship’s incredible facilities.
Day 7 - Nassau, Bahamas
As soon as you disembark at Nassau, you will instantly feel the friendliness of the Bahamians and with a very distinctive British flavour. The Bahamas’ capital city is a bustling metropolitan hub full of character and culture boasting miles of spectacular beaches and stretches of vivid coral reefs.
To the north lies the appropriately named Paradise Island, developed almost exclusively to delight and a snorkeler and diver’s Mecca. James Bond fans will certainly want to visit the British Colonial Hotel, the setting for two of the earlier films. Ship excursions take you on a tour of the historic points of the island. The incredible Adastra Gardens has four acres of tropical plants with over 200 birds, reptiles and mammals; while the Atlantis Hotel on Paradise Island provides the largest marine habitat, a one-of-a-kind 140 acre waterpark and dolphin and sea lion interaction experience. Depart at 7 pm.
Day 8 - Miami & End of cruise
This morning your ship returns you to the port of Miami arriving at 8 am for this morning’s disembarkation. If you would like to see more of Miami and Florida, allow a few extra nights in one of our hotels, alternatively transfer independently to the airport for your return flight home.
