Margaritaville at Sea is introducing three-night weekend sails, including new “Saturdays at Sea” experiences, for August through December 2024. 

Departing Friday and returning Monday, the three-night itinerary includes a full Saturday at sea, which will feature new dining, entertainment, and other experiences, such as a “Bottoms Up Party Brunch” with live music, special menus and drinks. 

Other Saturday programming will include “Tropic Like It’s Hot” island night with suggested themed attire for passengers; new, complimentary dinner menu at the Fins main dining room; a “Sail Yeah” deck party; pickleball competitions; spa specials; casino promotions; and more.

"This new three-night itinerary is our response to guests who’ve requested longer sailings so they have more time to enjoy our irresistible Margaritaville experience,” said Christopher Ivy, president & CEO of Margaritaville at Sea, in a release. “And our fun new Saturday at Sea is designed to help them make the most of their extra time.”

Among the 10 passenger decks, guests will enjoy endless entertainment, including two Stars on the Water shows – Caribbean Heat, and Radio Margaritaville: LIVE! At Sea. Several dining venues feature a variety of cuisine, while bars and lounges provide non-stop excitement paired with premium cocktails. 

The ship, which docks in Port of Palm Beach, also features a regulation-sized pickleball court, renovated kids clubs, an action-packed casino, pools, hot tubs, a rejuvenating spa and salon, and plenty of quiet spaces to soak up the Caribbean sun. 

The three-night “Saturdays at Sea” weekend sails will take place August through December 2024, with bookings available starting Nov. 9.

The Margaritaville cruise brand launched in 2022 as a partnership between the former Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line and the Margaritaville resort brand.

When the cruise line was started, the companies transferred the former Classica built in 1991 from Bahamas Paradise and rechristened her Margaritaville at Sea Paradise at an event that welcomed VIPs, including Jimmy Buffett himself, who gave a surprise hour-long live performance, singing iconic songs such as "Margaritaville" and "Cheeseburger in Paradise."

Buffett sadly passed away on Sept. 1 after fighting merkel cell skin cancer for four years.
