If you love to cruise and would like to finally put a face with a Twitter friend’s @name, pay attention. Norwegian Cruise Line will host the second annual SeaTweetup cruise on board Norwegian Sky from October 12-15, 2012. The first ever #SeaTweetup cruise took place on board Norwegian Sky from November 18-21, 2011. More than 45 social media enthusiasts came together to share and learn social media tips, tricks and best practices.
The social media infused sailing departs from Miami and will set sail on a weekend getaway to the Bahamas, visiting Nassau, Bahamas and Norwegian’s Private Island, Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas. The interactive cruise, coordinated by influential members of the South Florida social media community, will give enthusiasts the opportunity to participate in special networking events throughout the cruise including group activities, social media marketing panels and discussions, giveaways and cocktail parties. Guests will also be among the first to experience the exciting new enhancements to Norwegian’s private island, Great Stirrup Cay.
On their private Bahamian island, Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian Cruise Line now offers “Cabanas on the Cay,” exclusive private cabanas with VIP service and amenities. Undergoing a $25 million revitalization project, the launch of the “Cabanas on the Cay” adds an element of luxury to the island experience. Now turn an ordinary day at a cruise line’s private island into something extraordinary.
The three-day cruise takes networking to the next level allowing social media insiders to share their experiences with followers, as they build and strengthen relationships, as well as create new ones. Participants will have access to the ship’s Internet Café and Wi-Fi network, as well as invitations to in-port events to post, tweet, and blog throughout the weekend to the twitter hashtag #SeaTweetup.
In addition to planned group activities, guests can enjoy the weekend at their leisure with the perks of Norwegian’s exclusive Freestyle Cruising. The 2,002-passenger Norwegian Sky sets sail year round from Miami to the Bahamas and has 10 dining options; more than 10 bars and lounges; a spa and fitness center; casino; and duty-free retail shops.
