11:30 pm – Norwegian Cruise Line

As the innovator in global cruise travel, Norwegian Cruise Line has been breaking the boundaries of traditional cruising for over 52 years. Most notably, Norwegian revolutionized the industry by offering guests the freedom and flexibility to design their ideal vacation on their preferred schedule with no assigned dining and entertainment times and no formal dress codes. Today, its fleet of 16 contemporary ships sail to nearly 300 of some of the world’s most desirable destinations, including Great Stirrup Cay, the company’s private island in the Bahamas and its resort destination Harvest Caye in Belize. Additionally, Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America is the only ship that sails year-round from Honolulu on seven-day inter-island Hawaii cruises. Norwegian has been named "Europe's Leading Cruise Line" for the eleven consecutive years, "Caribbean's Leading Cruise Line" for the seven consecutive years and "World's Leading Cruise Line" for the third year by the World Travel Awards.

Our newest ship is Carnival Horizon, which debuted in April, and we’re introducing the new Carnival Panorama and the totally transformed Carnival Sunrise setting sail in 2019. In a nutshell… we’re all about fun vacations at sea and ashore! A Carnival cruise features day and nighttime entertainment like stage shows, musical performances, deck parties, casinos and more. (Like what? Like waterslides!) We invite our guests to come as they are, and we make everyone feel right at home with comfy staterooms, attentive service, casual and elegant dining, plus a variety of bars and gathering places indoors and out. Guests enjoy this unique experience against the backdrop of some of the world’s most beautiful seaports.
