I told you about the Miami feel to NCL’s new ship named the Getaway. Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders, a mojito bar and Pitbull’s music all represent the local culture. I live in South Florida, and have for most of my life. Our culture is unique. It’s exciting to share with the cruising public and the ship is definitely international. It will meet the tastes of the most savvy travelers as well as first-timers who no doubt will fall in love at first sight.
Staterooms are all well designed and range from family inside cabins on deck 13, to The Haven Courtyard penthouse with balcony on deck 16
Let’s talk about The Haven, a lux conclave on deck 16, with a two-bedroom family villa with balcony on deck 15. A two-facing penthouse with balcony on deck 11 rounds out the posh Haven offerings.
Key cards are necessary for entry and the entire posh area says “concierge level” with a capital “C.” (That “C” also stands for “classy.”
NCL has reprised the award-winning studio rooms on deck 11, ideal for single cabin guests first debuted on the NCL Epic.
Family suites are near the Splash Academy, the youth area for kids.
Getaway boasts 25 different staterooms. Décor is delightful, soothing and comfortable in all. A print on the wall in my large balconied room is attractive, a broad and inviting beach with an empty lifeguard station. It’s a print I wouldn’t mind hanging here in my home.
Getaway, like all Breakaway class ships, has that marvelous quarter-mile ocean-front promenade lined with restaurants, bars and unbelievable views.
With a variety of staterooms, a variety of eateries and entertainment venues, and a seven-day weekly itinerary to the Eastern Caribbean Getaway is sure to be a popular . . . getaway.
Next we’ll take a look at some of the exciting new restaurants aboard ship.
