I can’t claim to be a “Parrothead” or even part of the flock of fanatics that love Jimmy Buffett’s music. I am, however, a huge fan of a good hamburger and if I’m washing it down with a margarita (salt the rim of the glass, please), all the better! So I was pretty excited to hear that Jimmy Buffett is taking to the high seas by opening his “Margaritaville” restaurant and “5 O’clock Somewhere Bar” on the Norwegian Escape.
“Margaritaville”, will be one of the Norwegian Escape's complimentary dining options. The “5 O’clock Somewhere Bar” will be one of the line's restaurants on the Waterfront, a row of indoor-outdoor dining options, complete with live music and seating for optimal ocean viewing. The brand will also have a presence on the line's two private resorts at Harvest Caye in Belize and Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. The partnership will eventually extend to the line's other vessels in the fleet as well.
The Norwegian Escape, as well as “Margaritaville” conjure up images of what the perfect Caribbean cruise vacation should be…. a family-friendly, laid back, sandal wearing, take life easy kind of atmosphere! Beginning November of 2015, the Escape will homeport in Miami year-round, sailing an Eastern Caribbean itinerary.
