Cruise News: Star Wars, Celebrities, Dry Docks. Oh, My!

Nov 5, 2015 | By Lauramay LaChance

This is going to be a busy weekend in the cruising world. Anthem of the Seas is sailing out of New York for the first time, Norwegian Escape is making her public debut in Miami, and Country Music Awards winners, Florida Georgia Line, are kicking off their second music festival cruise. Good thing will be there so you don’t miss a thing.

3 Ladies, 3 Ships, 3 Adventures – Are you ready to cruise with us?

  • Friday morning we’re boarding Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas as she makes her debut in New York. We’ll give you a behind the scenes look at the galley, show you how to skydive on a cruise ship and try to figure out what the stowaway guy in the elevator is really all about.
  • Saturday morning we are cruising (figuratively and lyrically) with the CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, Florida Georgia Line.


We can’t resist the chance to blend our love of music and love of cruising into one experience. Follow us on Facebook as we show you what it’s like to go on a floating music festival when we join the "This is How We Cruise" sailing with Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Dustin Lynch, Jason Derulo and more. Don’t forget your flip-flops and cowboy boots, y’all.

  • Monday morning we are cruising on the brand new Norwegian Escape with international superstar (and soon to be Godfather) Pitbull.


After the christening ceremony we are headed out to sea where we won’t leave one towel animal unturned. We’ll show you what it’s like to play in the snow in the middle of the ocean, how chef Jose Garces whips up his famous dishes, chat with Michael Mondavi about his fabulous wines and learn about the hull art directly from the source, Guy Harvey.

We have exclusive images of the all-new Disney Dream from the Star Wars additions and the kids’ facilities to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and adult spaces.



  • You won’t believe what happens when Europa 2 comes across a local fishing boat at sea. Here’s a behind the scenes look of that and much more.
