I have a yucca plant. It has never bloomed. It looks great. It is at least 6 years old. It gets plenty of sun, but it has never bloomed. What am I doing wrong?

You haven't done anything wrong. They need to reach maturity before they will flower (anywhere from 2-6 years) and even after that, they bloom irregularly. You will need to just give it time. Yours is just now getting old enough, so it shouldn't be long. I would add a bit of phosphorus rich fertilizer, such as bone meal, to the soil around the yucca. This will help to encourage blooming.
