The Future Of Freestyle Cruising®, Arriving January 2014!

The latest addition to Norwegian Cruise Line's Freestyle fleet (and the second member of its mold-busting Breakaway-class, arriving hot on the heels of her sister ship, the Norwegian Getaway) is now scheduled to reach Miami, Florida in January of 2014 - a full three months earlier than anticipated!

Gathering all of the innovations that have made Breakaway such a resounding success, but home to a number of offerings that are uniquely hers, Norwegian Getaway is generating tremendous buzz in advance of her arrival. Dubbed "Miami's ship" by her creators, she will launch as the largest vessel to ever homeport year-round in the city, embodying all of the energy and excitement of her tropical hometown (beginning with her whimsical hull artwork, created by Miami's own David "LEBO" LeBatard).

Getaway's one-of-a-kind highlights include the Illusionarium ("dinner and a show" with astonishing twists, staged in an immersive environment populated by world-class magicians and supernatural special effects), the first-ever GRAMMY® Experience at sea (live performances by past winners and nominees, artifacts curated by The Recording Academy®, and more), Legally Blonde: The Musical, and "funny business" courtesy of Levity Entertainment Group, the world's largest producer of live comedy.

Additional notable features include The Haven By NorwegianTM, an exclusive "ship within a ship" (luxurious suite and villa accommodations, 24-hour butler service, private beach club with valet, private restaurant, etc.), The Waterfront and 678 Ocean Place (three decks' worth of indoor and outdoor restaurants, bars, shops, entertainment, and gaming), Splash Academy and Entourage (dedicated spaces for kids and teens, respectively), and a spectacular fireworks display on each and every voyage.

Get a head start on your Norwegian Getaway cruise: we're standing by to assist you with planning!

Norwegian Getaway will arrive in Florida in January 2014 following inaugural events in Europe and a transatlantic voyage via London (Southampton). Beginning Saturday, February 1st, she will sail a 7-Night Eastern Caribbean itinerary from Miami year-round featuring stops in Phillipsburg, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Nassau.

Cruises.com is now accepting reservations for all sailings aboard Norwegian Getaway. To secure a stateroom, please book online or contact our experts by phone 24/7 at 800-288-6006.
