We are deeply saddened by the news that one of our guests on our current cruise went overboard on November 12. The Coast Guard is now leading all search and rescue efforts and the ship is enroute back to Miami. The safety and security of our guests and the ship’s crew is our number one priority, all appropriate safety precautions will continue to be taken for this and all of our events.  Our hearts go out to the family and all involved in this incident, and we will continue to support those affected during this difficult time.

Guess who's playing basketball...

5-on-5 Basketball Tournament with Diplo and Friends

How it works: In the qualifying round, you'll have 30 seconds to make 5 shots from different points on the court.

The top 9 scorers get to play 5 on 5 b-ball with Diplo and friends! (We can't tell ya who just yet. But trust us -- you wanna sign up.)  The championship game is played until one team has 7 points.

Qualifiers will be notified via email prior to sailing!

Ask Sixthman

Whether you sailed with us last year or this is your first time, you’re bound to have interesting questions about the production of a massive floating festival. This is your shot to ask COO Anthony Diaz, Sixthman Jayne, and the rest of the Sixthman gang whatever is on your mind about Mad Decent Boat Party, Sixthman, themselves, each other… or anything else you happen to be pondering!

Body Painting by Borgore

Thursday, October 22, 2015

You’d look hot AF on the cover of Forbes with a little body paint. Good news: Borgore is ready to go Picasso on you! 15 lucky guests will get the opportunity for the Booty Monsta himself to create some custom art on their Boat Party bods. 

Where do I sign up?

On the first night of the cruise, drop off your name and cabin number at the Guest Services desk (Deck 7, MID). We’ll randomly select 15 guests for a 5 minute body painting session with Borgore. If you are selected, you will be notified by cabin note and by a phone call to your room — so be sure to check your voicemail! Body Painting by Borgore takes place on day two of the cruise at 11:00am. Better schedule a wake up call! You don’t want to keep Daddy waiting…

New Dining Policies Aboard Norwegian Pearl

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Norwegian Cruise Line has rolled out some new dining options aboard our home away from home.

There is a brand new room service menu! If you can't come to the restaurant we'll bring the restaurant to you. We offer a menu of items, which can be prepared and brought to your stateroom. Room Service is available 24-hours a day. There will be a $7.95 Room Service Convenience charge for all staterooms.

Please note that NCL will no longer offer 24-hour $5 pizza -- but you can order a personal pizza off of the new room service menu.

Also, Lotus Garden no longer had a specialty dining charge. Go get you some free noodles, team!

Something tells us you won't have any trouble finding some good grub once on board! There will still be plenty of late night buffet options, bacon, chicken fingers, and all of your favorite Boat Party cuisine.
