ORLANDO, Fla. (May 30, 2024) – Margaritaville at Sea’s newest ship, Islander, will set sail in June from Port Tampa Bay with a variety of new offerings for families. From adults to young travelers, everyone onboard the Islander will find their own entertaining slice of paradise – including live music enclaves, thrilling outer deck adventures, an all-ages lounge and arcade, and a first-ever cornhole-meets-mini-golf challenge course.  

“The new Islander is packed with an exciting variety of active and interactive ways for cruisers of all ages to enjoy their fun in the sun,” said Karen Maybury, Vice President of Entertainment at Margaritaville at Sea. “The new lineup of programming and activities designed specifically for children, teens, and families will greatly enhance the cruise experience, creating unforgettable memories for all of our guests.”
