The Vessel

For the first time ever in MORC history, you will be setting sail on the Norwegian Joy®!

This isn’t just any cruise ship; it’s one of the crown jewels of the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet, and it’s packed with incredible experiences.

The Norwegian Joy features several decks brimming with unique shops, a mix of complimentary and specialty restaurants, and entertainment that will leave you in awe.

The ship itself is a visual feast, with vibrant décor inspired by legendary music venues.

Need some grown-up time? Head over to the adults-only Vibe Beach Club or unwind in the Thermal Suite at the Mandara Spa. Pure bliss!

And that’s just the start. Ever imagined racing on a two-level track in the middle of the ocean? You can, at the Norwegian Joy Speedway!

It’s the first of its kind at sea, designed to let you soak in the stunning ocean views while zooming around. Talk about adrenaline and scenery combined!

Craving a new favorite cocktail? The Observation Lounge offers 180-degree panoramic views, perfect for sipping and soaking in the horizon.

Or maybe you’d prefer dining under the stars along The Waterfront, feeling the fresh sea breezes as you enjoy a fabulous meal.

Speaking of meals, the food options are to die for! From mouth-watering ribs at Q Texas Smokehouse to fresh seafood at Ocean Blue and perfectly cooked ribeye at Cagney’s Steakhouse, there’s something to satisfy every craving.

Nassau Bahamas

The Beaches

Nestled in the Berry Island chain of the Bahamas, Great Stirrup Cay is like a dream come true, spread over 250 acres of pure bliss.

Imagine yourself unwinding on soft, white-sand beaches, the waves gently lapping at your feet. There’s so much to do here in paradise!

You could snorkel with sea turtles and vibrant fish in those warm, turquoise waters. Or maybe you’d prefer a peaceful kayak glide along the coastline?

For thrill-seekers, riding a WaveRunner, swimming with stingrays or pigs, or even ziplining across the island is a must!

And don’t forget to craft your own tasty taco at the complimentary Abaco Taco while sipping on a cool, refreshing drink. Do everything, or just soak in the serenity—the choice is all yours.

Next up on the MORC ’25 adventure is Nassau, and boy, are you in for a treat! This port just got a dazzling $300 million makeover that took nearly four years to complete.

The capital city features a completely revamped waterfront area, including an expanded Prince George Wharf, more berths, and a shiny new terminal.

Plus, there’s an amphitheater that can host up to 3,500 people, event spaces, a living coral exhibit, and a variety of local food vendors and shops to explore.

The best part? Everything’s within walking distance from where the ship docks, making it super convenient.

Whether you want to dive into the fun at Atlantis Aquaventure, meet dolphins up close, or simply relax at Blue Lagoon Island Beach, Nassau has it all.

It’s the crown jewel of the Bahamas, and it’s set to make your MORC ’25 vacation unforgettable.

This voyage promises to be unforgettable, full of relaxation, adventure, and delicious moments.
