Norwegian Getaway Overview


Norwegian Getaway is designed for travelers looking for an action-packed vacation with fun-filled days riding waterslides and thrilling nights on the dance floor. Launched in 2013, Getaway offers a huge selection of activities, amenities, and dining venues that cruisers have come to expect out of modern ships. For kids, teens, and active adults, the main attraction is the three-story Sports Complex & Aqua Park, which features five multistory waterslides, including the super-fast Free Fall and the spiraling Whip. There's also a gigantic ropes course, a climbing wall, and a mini golf area. When it's time to refuel, passengers can choose from loads of complimentary and premium options ranging from the elegant Ocean Blue seafood restaurant to the family-friendly Garden Cafe buffet.

After dark, travelers can head to the Bliss Ultra Lounge for a night of dancing or stop by Jimmy Buffett's Chill Bar at Margaritaville for a slower paced evening before catching one of the ship's world-class shows. Make sure to catch Cirque Dreams and Steam and the rock musical Million Dollar Quartet, which centers around Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and rockabilly guitar slinger Carl Perkins. Burn the Floor is another popular choice with its exotic Latin and ballroom dancing and snappy choreography.

To top it all off, Norwegian Getaway sails to exotic destinations extending from Russia and Iceland to Norwegian’s private Harvest Caye resort in Belize. Between now and the first quarter of 2022, Getaway will be globetrotting between Europe, the Caribbean, and the United States. Most Norwegian Getaway itineraries in the Caribbean depart from Miami or New Orleans, while European sailings depart from Copenhagen and visit ports of call across Northern Europe, Scandinavia, and the British Isles.

Best For

Norwegian Getaway is ideal for families with younger or older children, high-energy groups, and singles who are cruising to relax or dance into the wee hours.

Things to Consider

Venues can be crowded and noisy at peak times, and early reservations are needed for most shows. Although the line's trademark freestyle cruise experience is popular with many travelers, some cruisers find that it leads to sudden crowds and a disorganized feel at times.

2012 Norwegian Getaway Reviews

Bermuda, NOT by cludwin315

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

In general, I was not pleased with this cruise. The server for the computer system was down a full day and very slow throughout. Food was not nearly up to any par, shops did not have anything worth buying, etc.

Norwegian is my new favorite cruiseline! by toyamyers

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We had a great time on this cruise and enjoyed everything it had to offer. Our time in Bermuda was short due to the rain but the boat and all of its amenities made up for that. We we definitely be booking with Norwegian again.

1103 Norwegian Getaway Tips

Sep 14, 2014

on embarkation day go to one of the complimentary restaurants for lunch and avoid the crowded lido.

Jan 27, 2015

Try the smaller (Taste and Savor) main dining rooms for meals much more intimate and at no charge.

Oct 11, 2014

Go to dinner early so you can get a window seat in the dining room. Eating dinner, while the sun was setting, and the water flowed by was so romantic and not to be missed.
