BEST CRUISE LINE WE RECOMMEND:
The Trophy Goes to: Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Getaway, Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Gem and Norwegian Epic
Why: It’s hard to beat Norwegian when it comes to nightlife, and its Bliss Ultra Lounge, a decadent Vegas-like club, is a winner. Don’t miss Broadway dance show “Burn the Floor” on Norwegian Epic, Breakaway and Getaway for inspiration.
Norwegian’s newest and biggest ships (Breakaway, Getaway, Escape) feature the Glow Party. It typically takes place in Spice H2O, the adults-only sun deck, though it’s often a family-friendly event. Come early to get your face decorated with paint that glows under the black lights. Be sure to wear white or fluorescent clothing so you’ll glow, too. Entertainment staffers will hand out a limited supply of glow sticks, but it’s best to bring your own.
