      About this trip

      Explore the Eastern Caribbean for seven days aboard the Norwegian Encore, roundtrip from Miami, and experience the private island Great Stirrup Cay, where you can sip a cold cocktail, eat fish tacos and work on your tan along the Atlantic’s edge. There are a plethora of watersports as well, and the newest shore excursion will take you on a short boat ride to swim with the famous Bahamian pigs.

      The picturesque island of St. Thomas. While the duty-free shopping is perhaps the best in the Caribbean, its striking blue water and beaches, like Magen’s Bay, are indescribably beautiful. Take the Skyride to Paradise Point for awe-inspiring views.

      Tortola is the largest of more than 50 British Virgin Islands and its velvety white sand is legendary. Drive through the capital of Road Town for a glimpse of its culture and charm or hit the beaches, especially The Baths, a geographic wonder of mammoth-sized granite boulders.

      Note: Itinerary, ports of call, or the order in which we visit the ports of call is subject to change determined by the Cruise line.

      TSA Requirements for Guests who are Flying

      TSA requirements mandate that for all guests who have purchased air, Norwegian must provide TSA with Full Names (as it appears on your passport) that include middle name (if applicable), Date of Birth, and Gender. Without this information, you can be denied boarding the aircraft.

      Domestic Airline Travel ID Requirements for U.S. Citizens: 

      Beginning May 3, 2023, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, state-issued enhanced driver’s license, or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States. REAL IDs are marked by a star on the top of the card. Between now and the effective date of the new regulations, we encourage all travelers to check their IDs and obtain a REAL ID if they don’t already have one. To obtain a REAL ID requires documentation beyond what is required for most standard drivers' licenses. Prepare to collect and present several documents to DMV officials that prove residency and identification.

      Guests should take this into consideration when planning travels for their cruise.

      I had an amazing time!!!!! This trip was definitely worth the money and it stands by its name (Trip Of A Lifetime). It was well planned out. The spiritual routine, the opportunity to meet new friends from different places, the food and culture, the sights we saw, nature, and our wonderful tour guides (Pedro & Debbie), were all experiences that I appreciated very much and won't forget. I recommend this trip with both thumbs!!!
      By Shanna D for Grand Canyon Country Trip of a Lifetime 2023 on Nov 05, 2023
      We had a blast. The tours were wonderful and our guides, Debbie and Pedro, were so warm, friendly and of course, organized. The views at the canyons, parks and even the stars, were jaw-dropping. I loved that we had a couple of free days included to do our own excursion, if we wanted to. Importantly, they made sure that we kept a spiritual routine by considering the text, the Watchtower study and sharing experiences. It really was the trip of a lifetime and we met and made some amazing friends along the way.
      By Shunnie J for Grand Canyon Country Trip of a Lifetime 2023 on Oct 12, 2023
      We had a wonderful time. I enjoyed getting acquainted with all the friends from all over the country. Some I’m still communicating with. Every bit of the trip was enjoyable the sites we visited amazing, the hotels, beautiful, and very accommodating, good food, and especially good friends. Our guys were wonderful, and I would love to take another trip someday with JW trips.
      By Judy C for Grand Canyon Country Trip of a Lifetime 2023 on Oct 10, 2023
      This trip was definitely worth the cost. The sights and friendships developed are priceless. The beautiful sights that I saw were only in pictures and movies, but seeing Jehovah's marvelous creations with my owns eyes was mesmerizing. Needless to say the tour guides Pedro and Debbie were like good parents, they constantly looked out for us, kept us safe and made it fun memorable experience. Overall I would recommend this trip for everyone. Save up and go see for yourself.
