Norwegian Getaway is a cruise ship of the Norwegian Cruise Line. It was built by Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany, and was delivered to its owner on 10 January 2014. At the time of its christening it was the world's ninth-largest cruise ship with a passenger capacity of 3,969 and a crew of 1,640.

Amenities on board the ship include restaurants by chef Geoffrey Zakarian, an entertainment venue devoted to magic called the "Illusionarium", and another entertainment venue themed in conjunction with the Grammy Awards. The ship is based in Miami and mostly sails seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruises. It was christened in Miami on February 7, 2014, with the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders serving as godmothers. The ship departed on its maiden voyage the next day.

Design and description

Norwegian Getaway is the sister vessel of Norwegian Breakaway, and was built by Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany, for Norwegian Cruise Line. The name of the ship was selected in a competition, and was submitted by Dennis Hultman of Vienna, Virginia, United States. NCL expects the ship to be based out of Miami year-round. David "LEBO" Le Batard was commissioned by NCL to design the mural on the hull of the ship.

A fire broke out at the shipyard on 5 March 2013, but no one was injured and it did not delay the delivery of the vessel. Smoke from the fire did result in production areas and the visitors centre being evacuated.

Entertainment and restaurants

Entertainment on board the ship includes the "Illusionarium", an entertainment venue devoted to magic and illusion performances. It also includes a 30 feet (9.1 m) high video dome in the middle of the performance area. The water park has five slides, including two freefall drop and two twister slides located side by side in a spiral and one kids slide.

There is a Grammy entertainment venue which includes items taken from the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. In line with this, Norwegian Cruise Line became the "Official Cruise Line Partner of the Grammy Awards". Chef Geoffrey Zakarian has food venues on board the ship including the Ocean Blue concept. Ocean Blue forms part of the area on the ship called "The Waterfront" which allows for outdoor dining in most of the restaurants on board.

Itineraries

The vessel arrived in Southampton from Rotterdam on 14 January, leaving for two crew work-up day-cruises in the English Channel on 14 and 15 January, before departing from Southampton for New York on 16 January.

While in New York it was temporarily rechristened the "Bud Light Hotel" to house 4,000 people during its docking at the New York Passenger Ship Terminal during the week of Super Bowl XLVIII.

In February 2014 it began to undertake cruises to the Caribbean continuing to do so in the 2015 season.

Norwegian Cruise Lines announced itineraries for the fall of 2019 and all of 2020, the Getaway will spend the summer of 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark offering Scandinavian cruises. In the fall of 2019, the Getaway will arrive at its new homeport, New Orleans, where it will offer various length cruises of the Caribbean. In April 2020, the Getaway will cross the Atlantic to begin Mediterranean cruises from Rome.
