Norwegian Getaway made her sailing debut in 2014 as the largest ship in the world cruising from Miami to the tropics. From the start, she’s been a first-in-class, luxury ocean liner that’s probably the finest in Norwegian Cruise Line’s Breakaway Class of ships and a preferred vessel for sailing to many exciting island paradises, from popular destinations like New York City.
Since Norwegian Getaway is the largest ocean liner in Norwegian’s fleet, she can get away with offering dozens of amazing attractions and activities that you won’t find on other cruise ships. Norwegian Getaway features many innovative restaurants, opulent public spaces, and upgraded staterooms including luxury cabins in a private 42-suite boutique hotel-like area called “The Haven.”
After a handful of inaugural events throughout Europe, Norwegian Getaway sailed on a transatlantic cruise stopping in Southampton and then continued on for nine nights toward Miami. She was stationed in Miami for a year, and now she offers cruises to locales like Kings Wharf Bermuda.
Norwegian Getaway embraces a “freestyle dining” approach to eating, like many of the other ships in the Norwegian fleet. Freestyle dining allows passengers to take their pick from casual eateries and formal dining rooms, as they enjoy breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and even quick-serve snacks all complimentary as part of the price of the cruise.
Bars and Clubs
There are more than a dozen bars and clubs on Norwegian Getaway, each of which are free to enter and most of which are open into the wee hours of the morning. Look for several bars and lounges in Norwegian Getaway’s 678 Ocean Place Promenade, a three-level indoor and outdoor gathering space that’s quite popular.
Fun in the sun on Norwegian Getaway takes place in many locations, but much of it is in The Waterfront. This area is an innovative, industry-leading open-air promenade that affords spectacular views of the ocean, and many opportunities for mingling, all while giving cruisers amazing views to look up during activities. When you sail on Norwegian Getaway, you can climb the largest rope course at sea, shoot down five full-size waterslides into a gigantic swimming pool, and take the kids for a dip in a kiddie pool. Inside Norwegian Getaway, there are Broadway-style shows to watch, a casino to try your luck in, a fitness center, and even a day spa.
