NCL boosts world class entertainment and don't forget to pack an all-white outfit for the White Hot Party, the big shipboard dance party. Plus, for those who love to relax, consider a Thermal Spa Pass to truly get away from it all.

Shore Excursions

Key West is a great walkable town with historic sights (Hemingway Home), great food, and activities (parasailing, jet skis and fishing)! Plus a thriving gay scene. We recommend dropping by AquaPlex in the afternoon for a quick drink a short 10 minute walk from the dock. At Great Stirrup Cay, relax on the beach, try the lighthouse zip line, snorkel in the clear waters, or consider a luxury cabana great for groups of up to 8 that want to indulge in the ultimate beach day experience.
