Norwegian Getaway is a sistership to Norwegian Breakaway. The keellaying which took place in autumn 2012 marked the start of the ship’s assembly. During the keellaying the first of 73 blocks of the 146,000-gt ship was put into place in the yard’s covered building dock. After a building period of only 15 months the cruise ship was delivered to the owner Norwegian Cruise Line (Miami, USA) in January 2014.
The Norwegian Getaway is the tenth ship MEYER WERFT has built for Norwegian Cruise Line. The Norwegian Getaway combines high-end event gastronomy as part of the "freestyle cruising concept" with many new leisure offers like rock-climbing or freefall slides. Just as impressive are the ship's luxurious outfitting and its state-of-the-art technical level.
The latest interactive communication systems and a sophisticated stage technology ensure safety and entertainment according to the state-of-the-art technical standards. The latest en-gine technology, the diesel-electric pod drive system, improved hydrodynamics as well as effective energy saving guarantee an ecological cruise experience at significantly reduced operating costs.
Norwegian Breakaway revolutionized cruising with its Waterfront and strong connection to New York. Norwegian Getaway will do the same as Miami’s ultimate ship, offering the only way to cruise the Caribbean from Miami with a plethora of incredible features,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer.
