Discover the Margaritaville Islander

Flip Flop

If you’ve ever dreamt of living the island life, sipping margaritas under swaying palm trees, and experiencing the laid-back vibes of paradise, then the Margaritaville Islander cruise ship is your ticket to tropical bliss. Departing from the vibrant port of Tampa, this cruise ship is more than just a mode of transportation—it’s an immersive escape into the world of Margaritaville, inspired by the legendary Jimmy Buffett.

Setting Sail from Tampa

Tampa is the perfect embarkation point for the Margaritaville Islander. As you board the ship, you’re greeted with a warm, tropical welcome that sets the tone for your entire journey, and once on board the Margaritaville Islander, you’ll quickly realize that this is not your typical cruise ship. Every detail has been carefully crafted to transport you to the carefree world of Margaritaville. The ship boasts vibrant, island-inspired decor, complete with palm trees, hammocks, and colorful murals that instantly put you in a vacation state of mind.

Accommodations with Island Flair

The staterooms and suites on the Margaritaville Islander are designed to be your personal oasis at sea. Each room is thoughtfully decorated with coastal colors and tropical accents, providing a comfortable and relaxing space to unwind and the larger suites are themed to one of Jimmy Buffet’s famous songs.

Savor the Flavors of Paradise

One of the highlights of the Margaritaville Islander experience is the exceptional dining options available on board. Indulge in a culinary journey that captures the essence of island living. From fresh seafood and Caribbean-inspired dishes to classic American fare, there’s something to satisfy every palate.

  • Margaritaville Restaurant: Enjoy signature dishes like the Cheeseburger in Paradise and Key Lime Pie while sipping on your favorite frozen concoction.
  • 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill: This poolside bar offers tropical cocktails, cold beers, and a laid-back atmosphere perfect for enjoying live music and stunning ocean views.
  • LandShark Bar & Grill: Experience the best of beachside dining with delicious burgers, seafood, and refreshing drinks.

We are currently sailing on this ship and I wanted to give it my own review since so many are anxiously awaiting details. I will give it a 5-star rating to date, being on the ship just 2 days out of a 5 day cruise. We have chosen a Grand Suite since they offered half-price cruise fares this past month, and I will say we have never stayed in a more luxurious, spacious suite from more than 25 various cruise lines we have booked. The food has been wonderful, the staff extremely helpful and friendly; there is a variety of nighttime entertainment and daytime activities with definitely any kind of “margarita” you could possibly want to try. Then instead of “formal nights” there will be a “Boots & Bubbles” Western night, offering special dining menus followed by a “Conky Tonkin’ at Sea” Show. The second “informal” night will be a Caribbean theme with tropical resort wear and a Caribbean Heat Remix show to carry the theme all night long. It is all about relaxing, kicking back and having as much fun as you want to have.

So, leave those formal gowns and suits at home and enjoy the island life on the Islander! This ship is a celebration of good times and the joy of living in the moment. Pack your bags, put on your flip-flops, and get ready to sail away to paradise. After all, it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere!

Bon voyage and see you in Margaritaville!
