Norwegian Getaway

The Norwegian Getaway makes most other sea vessels look like child’s play. Built in Papenburg, Germany for Norwegian Cruise Line, this sister ship of the Norwegian Breakaway is more than 1,000 feet in length and is closer to a floating resort city than anything else. Numerous facilities combine to keep passengers busy between stops, and the tasteful staterooms provide more than enough in the way of comfort and amenities when there is downtime to fill. Perhaps this is why Norwegian Cruise Line has dubbed the Norwegian Getaway “Miami’s Ultimate Ship.”

The rooms on the Norwegian Getaway blend contemporary style with comfort and come in a wide variety of categories. There are studios that cater to solo travelers, interior rooms without windows that are budget-friendly, rooms with picture windows, balcony units, “Spa” suites that are within close proximity to the ship’s spa and that come with spa-inspired decors. Moving up a level, there are extra-spacious “Haven” suites that cater to those who want the full experience. Common amenities in all the Norwegian Getaway rooms include private baths and flat-screen TVs, and guests can also expect to have either a mini bar or a wine bar at their disposal. The other amenities for the Norwegian Getaway rooms vary according to the unit in question. The studios include access to a special lounge, for example, while the top-of-the-line Haven Deluxe Owner’s Suites feature such extras as floor-to-ceiling windows and marble baths with jetted tubs.
