The day is finally here. I arrived at the airport at 4:45 this morning to catch a 6a flight to Miami to embark on the Country Cruise. If you’re a fan of country music, both new and known (classier word for old) will be sailing. Folks like Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Wynonna Judd, Lonestar, Neil McCoy and so on.
This is going to be my first theme cruise, first music cruise and first time participating in a full ship charter. I’ll have plenty to report back.
As for now, I’m sitting in the American Airlines Admiral’s club, so I don’t have much to report except the basics.
- Miami – embarkation
- Sea day
- Sea day
- Ocho Rios, Jamaica
- George Town, Grand Cayman
- Cozumel, Mexico
- Sea day
We’ll be sailing on Norwegian Pearl, a ship that was launched in 2006 and sails seasonally in Miami and Alaska.
- Ocho Rios, Jamaica: All-inclusive resort day pass at Sandals.I booked this excursion through Shore Excursions Group and it looks really cool. The whole all-inclusive part sold me. Here’s the link to it: Sandals Ocho Rios Day Pass.
- George Town, Grand Cayman: I had no clue that you could buy a day pass at Royal Palms Cayman for only $2 per person. This isn’t all-inclusive but it does let you hang out on seven mile beach. You will have access to the stunning Seven Mile Beach and use of our showers, change rooms and washrooms. Lounge chairs are available on the beach for $ 7 each.
- Cozumel, Mexico: I’ll probably just going to chill out at the beach here or find a watering hole. There are a couple of all-inclusive resorts for really cheap and close to the ship. Last time I went to El Cid Resort and it was $15.
