Overview

Introduced in 2014, the 3,963-passenger, 1,646-crew member Norwegian Getaway was recently renovated in 2019 to add a full-service Starbucks, a new live music venue and more. The ship further distinguishes itself from competitors with its quarter-mile-long "Waterfront" area that's lined with shops, bars and restaurants. 

Getaway appeals to younger crowds thanks to a multistory water park and age-specific kids and teens clubs. Still, it appeals to couples as well with its romantic gourmet dining venues, such as the Ocean Blue specialty restaurant, as well as Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville at Sea.

When it comes to lodging, solo travelers can take advantage of Studio cabins, while groups can opt for Inside, Oceanview, Balcony and Suite category cabins. If you’re looking for even more luxury, splurge on a cabin in The Haven, which offers access to a private sun deck and 24-hour butler service.

In 2019-20, the ship departs from New Orleans, New York CityBarcelona and Rome for sailings in the Bahamas, the Caribbean and Europe
