Is a bachelorette party in your future? Whether it’s for yourself or your best friend, there are a lot of moving parts when it comes to coordinating a destination retreat for a group of fun-loving ladies. Where will we go? Where will we stay? Can we afford that? What will we do when we get there? The answer to all of your planning needs is simple and brilliant—a short cruise with Norwegian Cruise Line.
A bachelorette party at sea? Absolutely. It’s not only affordable, but cruising is also a great value because so much is included. You can choose a 3-, 4- or 5-day cruise to a variety of cruise destinations. And on Norwegian Sky from Miami, weekend cruises leave Friday afternoon and are back in port Monday morning.
What’s more, when you cruise with Norwegian, you follow your own schedule. There are no set dining times, no assigned seating, no getting stuck at a table full of strangers. Eat when, where and with whom you want. Most entertainment is complimentary too, including award-winning Broadway shows, like Kinky Boots and Rock of Ages. With Norwegian, you can make planning a bachelorette party cruise as easy as saying, "I do."
1. Cruising is a Great Value
Now, let’s talk dollars—and sense. Your cruise fare includes dining at any of the complimentary restaurants on board — for every meal. To save even more, group discounts are available in the way of benefits and amenities that can help customize your group's need from cocktail parties to photo packages. Plus, with Norwegian’s Free at Sea promotion, you can take advantage of things like Free Unlimited Open Bar, Free Specialty Dining, Free Shore Excursions, Free WiFi and Family & Friends Sail Free.
2. Group Cruise Experts Make Planning a Breeze
Planning a bachelorette party at sea couldn’t be easier—just reach out to the Groups Cruise Department at Norwegian. They’re experts in all things group related, including booking your staterooms close to each other and helping you plan activities on board and on shore. Does everyone love martinis? Arrange a special martini-tasting where everyone can sample the latest trends and the classics. Or maybe you’d like a private lunch or dinner party, where the guest of honor can be celebrated in style. Just ask!
Where do you want to cruise to? With a 3-, 4- or 5-day sailing, you can cruise to the Bahamas, The Caribbean, Western Caribbean or the Mexican Riviera from Miami, Orlando, Tampa, New Orleans, and Los Angeles. These tropical destinations offer exciting experiences for history buffs, adrenaline junkies, sun lovers, and explorers. How about a private beach cabana? Or a swim with dolphins? Shore Excursion Specialists can help arrange an activity that perfectly suits your group and your budget.
At Norwegian’s private island in the Bahamas, Great Stirrup Cay, you can spend the day lounging by the ocean, splashing in the crystal-blue water, dancing in the sand, enjoying a free beach BBQ or set your sights high and go parasailing.
3. Eat, Drink, Spa, Repeat
Back on board, there is something for everyone, including the Mandara Spa, where you can let the world melt away as you relax and rejuvenate with a hot stone massage. Mandara Spa offers over 50 specialty treatments, so you can be pampered from the top of your head, with a scalp massage and deep conditioning treatment, to your tippy toes, with reflexology and a pedicure. Life is good in the spa, girls. So good.
When it's time to dine, depending on your ship, you'll have up to 12 different complimentary options to choose from-and they're all delicious! Gorgeous sit-down dining rooms, casual buffets, poolside grills, even a 24-hour pub-style eatery. Chicken wings or cheesecake at 3 am, anyone?
When you’re ready to live out the mantra “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” you can explore up to 22 Bars & Lounges, including nightclubs like Bliss Ultra Lounge, where you can dance till the wee hours. Norwegian’s White Hot Party is a poolside extravaganza under the stars complete with music, neon, black lights, and amazing dancers. You won’t want to miss it. Wear matching white outfits and get your group groove on.
Feeling lucky? You’ll find the most popular slot machines and table games in the cruise casino. Take the bachelorette for a spin around the casino floor and let her try the latest video slots, or place a bet on her game of choice. Of course, she’s already lucky to have found her perfect person—and fortunate to have all of you there to celebrate.
