Norwegian Getaway overview

By Cruiseline.com - Updated Mar. 9, 2020

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.

Before you book

Why sail on Norwegian Getaway: 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.

You should know: 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.

Waking the world back up+ by channeling

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

It was great to be back at sea. The NCL staff made us very welcome on board, boarding was a disaster. Food and entertainment was up to snuff but excursions were a disappointment.

Excellent Transatlantic Crossing by paklinski

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

The NCL Getaway is a very large ship. It is well maintained and clean. At the time of our sailing it was only about 25% capacity. This was a good thing as the pool deck was not open because of the cold weather. Had the ship been full it would have been very crowded without the pool deck. As it was there were never any lines. The staff was exceptional, friendly, helpful, and professional. Captain Gkokas was the most friendly and involved Captain I have ever had. He added much to the trip. I love NCL!!!

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.
