CPC 2024: Miami
College Party Cruise will be sailing to the most popular cruise destinations in the world, the Bahamas – departing from Miami. The Bahamas offers it all…the tropics, history, culture, and great island vibes… The Bahamas is just 100 miles off the coast of Florida and offers the perfect climate, averaging just over 75 degrees, crystal clear turquoise waters and pearly white beaches… it’s the ultimate escape for sun and sand seekers! We will be docking in Nassau, the colorful Caribbean capital of the Bahamas, and Cococay, the cruise line’s private island, where you can grab a drink at the swim up bar and soak up the scene in the largest freshwater pool in the Bahamas.
We are sailing on the following 2 weeks:
Week 1: March 04 – March 08, 2024
Week 2: March 11 – March 15, 2024
|Tue||Perfect Day Cococay, Bahamas||07:00am||05:00pm|
*Itinerary is subject to change at any time
All guests must be checked-in and on-board the ship by 3:00pm on the date of departure. Please see Before you Board.
If you are booking a flight to and from Miami we suggest that you consider arriving at least a day earlier so that you can take advantage of the local attractions in the Miami area and join us at our Miami pre-cruise party in South Beach the night before we set sail to meet and mingle with fellow shipmates. Arriving a day earlier also helps to avoid potential flight delays, baggage collection and transfer problems that could occur.
When booking flights, we recommend that you arrive in Miami no later than 11:00am on Monday. Return flights should be arranged to leave Miami after 12:00pm (noon) on Friday, in the event there is a delay in debarkation. If you plan to fly into or out of Ft. Lauderdale, please add an additional 1-2 hours for travel in the event of traffic.
Day 1: Miami, Florida
Boarding Day. Ship departure time is 4:30 p.m. Make sure to be on the ship by 3:00 p.m. Now that you are on the ship, Spring Break has officially started! The entire ship, including the slides, pools, buffet, and bars are open and waiting for you… we hope you are thirsty and hungry. Grab some lunch, a drink (or two), and then check in with CPC to pick up your wristbands and tank tops. Once you’re settled in, then its off to the sail away party on the pool deck as we wave goodbye to Miami and head out sea.
Once the sun retires for the day, discover a night filled with dancing, laughs, full-scale production shows, and live music at bars, clubs and lounges that never feature a cover charge. In addition to all the entertainment available throughout the ship, we will host late night private parties open to CPC spring breakers only!
Day 2: PERFECT DAY Cococay, Bahamas
Today we dock at Royal Caribbean’s private island. Cococay is an unspoiled private paradise where you can relax in white-sandy beaches or participate in optional thrills and excursions. Most of the experiences at Perfect Day at CocoCay are complimentary, these include: free beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels, beachside activities, Oasis Lagoon – the Caribbean’s largest fresh water pool and swim up bar, sports courts, and more — not to mention five new complimentary dining venues located throughout the island. Other attractions, like Thrill Waterpark, the Zip Line, and Up, Up and Away helium balloon, are optional and available for a charge.
Day 3: Nassau, Bahamas
We’ll dock in Nassau at 8:00am. Here we have all day to explore everything that the Bahamian capital, Nassau, has to offer. Nassau is the perfect Spring Break destination because it provides the best of both worlds: a party atmosphere and plenty of opportunity for adventure and relaxation. It’s no coincidence that Nassau has become the #1 destination for Spring Break. You’ll have all day to hang out and party with us at our CPC “Party in Paradise” Beach Party where we will have music, beach games, and activities exclusive for College Party Cruise! If you are feeling adventurous, you can hop on a catamaran to go on a snorkeling excursion at the reef, shop in the world famous Straw Market, or generally explore one of the Caribbean’s most famous destinations at your leisure.
Day 4: Cruising IN THE CARIBBEAN
Don’t call this a boat. The Freedom of the Seas is a destination in itself, and is known as the ship that revolutionized cruising. Fresh off a $116 million renovation in 2020, this massive and action packed ship offers it all. During our day at sea, you can experience all the thrills this amazing ship has to offer, from the Flowrider surf simulator to the Perfect Storm duo of high-speed waterslides… did you know you could even go ice-skating in the middle of the Caribbean? Or you can simply relax in the newly redesigned resort-style pool deck offering plenty of chairs, in-pool loungers, hammocks, day beds and casitas to keep you cool while sailing. Make sure not to miss the hilarious competitions by the sports pool, like the classic Belly-Flop Competition or the Worlds Sexiest Man Competition.
Day 5: Miami, Florida
Wake up (if you even slept), eat your last breakfast on board, exchange info with all your new friends, and walk off the ship in Miami, Florida. Although you’re sad that the cruise is over, your head is held high because you have the best stories and the funniest pictures. These last 4 days were amazing and we can’t wait to see your memories on social media.

Only 364 days until our next Spring Break cruise!
