Norwegian Getaway Completes First Cruise After Renovation

   June 9, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

Norwegian Cruise Line celebrated the completion of the first sailing of Norwegian Getaway after vessel’s extensive refurbishment as part of The Norwegian Edge fleetwide renovation program.

Following a 2-week dry dock in Brest France in late May, Norwegian Getaway sailed back to Copenhagen after completing her first voyage showcasing new venues, updated social spaces, refreshed decor and accommodations. The renovations were completed in time for a summer of Russia, Baltic, and Scandinavia cruising.

New outlets aboard Getaway include the company’s first onboard, full-service Starbucks licensed store in the European market, as well as the popular rock ‘n’ roll-themed venue, Syd Norman’s Pour House. Syd Norman’s Pour House debuted on Norwegian Breakaway last year, inspired by the greatest rock clubs. It features rock-themed cocktails, movies, events, and live tribute bands performing 60s, 70s and 80s hits.

As part of the renovation, about 800 pieces of art were incorporated onboard the ship, and more than 20% of those works of art are original pieces.

Next year, Norwegian Getaway returns to Europe to sail in the Mediterranean for the first time while homeporting in Civitavecchia-Rome for a summer of cruising the Greek Isles and Italy.
