Review of Norwegian Getaway

Launched in 2014, Norwegian Getaway is the second of two Breakaway-class NCL ships, together with NCL Breakaway, which debuted in 2013. The next generation (biggest class) NCL Norwegian vessels are the new Breakaway-Plus ships Norwegian Escape (2015), Norwegian Joy (2017) and Norwegian Bliss (2018).

History - construction and ownership

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) is a subsidiary company of the shipping corporation Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NCLH). NCL was founded in 1966, headquartered in Miami (Florida USA) and publicly traded (NASDAQ) company listed on NYSE (NYC). NCLH's major shareholders are the corporations Apollo Global Management (American), Genting Group (Malaysian) and TPG Capital (American). In 2017, the brand NCL had worldwide cruise market share 8,7% (passengers) and 8,4% (revenue). NCLH (shipowner) owns the brands NCL, Oceania and RSSC (Regent).

NCL Norwegian Getaway cruise ship

The 145,655-ton, 4,028-passenger cruise ship Norwegian Getaway was finished and delivered to her owner, Norwegian Cruise Line, on January 10, 2014. The vessel was built by Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany and is located most of the time in Miami (where was the ceremony of naming the Norwegian Getaway on February 7, 2014). The name of Getaway was chosen after a competition. While the ship was under construction, on 5 March 2013 a fire broke out. Luckily, no one was injured and the accident did not stop the construction works.

Cruise itinerary program

Norwegian Getaway itinerary program is based on 7-day Eastern Caribbean voyages from Miami FL, with feature port destinations Saint Thomas, Saint Maarten and Nassau Bahamas.

Cabins

Most Norwegian Getaway staterooms are 170-sq.foot Balcony rooms (998). There are a total of 2014 staterooms in 42 categories. 42 are the wheelchair accessible rooms. The largest aboard Norwegian Getaway are the Haven Deluxe Owner’s Suites (740 ft2).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

When it comes to dining on Norwegian Getaway, Freestyle is the norm. It means guests can eat virtually when they want, where they want. This applies to the extra-fee dining, as well as included or free dining. Traditionalists enjoy the three "main dining rooms": The Tropicana and more-intimate Taste and Savor. Thanks to Norwegian's drive to improve all dining options in 2014, quality is generally good. Guests had complained about declining quality, and NCL invested in improving on standards and new menu options. Healthy and vegetarian options are always available. One of Norwegian's greatest strengths is the vast range of dining venues. Passengers can try a French bistro, Italian trattoria, Asian Teppanyaki, Brazilian churrascaria, steakhouse, seafood restaurant, a raw bar and a noodle bar. All specialty dining carries an 18% auto-gratuity.
