Norwegian Escape – The world’s newest cruise ship, Norwegian Escape was christened in PortMiami on Monday by Mr. 305, Pit Bull.

Norwegian Escape will sail 6, 7 and 8 night cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean from PortMiami.
Anthem of the Seas – Royal Caribbean’s newest cruise ship, Anthem of the Seas arrived in New York Harbor last week and will sail out of Cape Liberty, New Jersey. Billed as the most innovative cruise ship ever built, the cruise ship has unique features that no other ships sailing to the Caribbean have.
Among these unique features are robot bartenders, a sky diving simulator, floor to ceiling virtual balconies on all inside staterooms, and the innovative Two70 Lounge. The SeaPlex is one of the most versatile rooms at sea. It can be used as a full sized basketball court, bumper cars, roller skating, and even a circus school.
Joining these two new cruise ships to the Caribbean, this past week saw Allure of the Seas and MSC Divina make their way back to South Florida for the 2015-2016 Caribbean cruise season.
Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas is currently the largest cruise ship in the world. The ship arrived back in Port Everglades on November 6 after a dry dock and a season in Europe. During the dry dock, Allure of the Seas received a few upgrades as well as new restaurants and shops. Allure of the Seas sails 7 night cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean.
MSC Divina arrived back in Miami, Florida on November 11 and will now sail year round to the Caribbean from the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami. MSC Cruises offers Mediterranean style cruising on one of their most elegant ships. From the Swarovksi crystal staircases to the aft infinity pool, MSC Divina offers the best value to the Caribbean with seven night cruises starting at $399 per person.
