Trip Report Norwegian Sky, A Fun Party Weekend

Jump to last reply

One of the advantages of living near cruise ports like Miami and Ft. Lauderdale or Los Angeles, is that an affordable fun weekend is always a possibility. This weekend we are on the Norwegian Sky for an escape to celebrate a birthday with friends.

A short drive to the port of Miami (US$20 per day parking, the worst part of the cruise) and our cruise begins with a rush to the buffet before the life boat drill begins. Over the years I am glad to see this drill has been made less painful. Like all “Good Cruisers”, I look forward to the day when this can be done while stuffing our faces at the buffet. Only then will cruising truly reach epic heights.

Just past 5pm massive tons of blue and white steel breaks free from port captivity. Left foot, left stomp, everybody clap your hands, our fun party weekend has began as we sail away for The Islands of The Bahamas.
