Ahead of Hurricane Irma, most Floridians got out of Dodge, while some fools decided to hang around and party their way through it. But no matter how awesome the party, no one did Hurricane Irma better than the people on a cruise ship.
Right now, the Norwegian Escape is somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico with some 4,000 drunken passengers who avoided the massive storm. The ship took on some displaced passengers, in addition to its own passengers who had been dropped off in Miami after their cruises were cut short before the hurricane, leaving them with nowhere to go as Irma bore down on them. The Escape then headed out to sea with an “unlimited” supply of booze.
After the pounding Florida took, it could be a while before the ship docks again, and that’s just fine with the passengers.
