Yesterday, Norwegian Cruise Line passed another fantastic milestone in the construction of their eagerly-anticipated new ship, Norwegian Getaway, which was just floated out of Meyer Werft’s Building Dock II for the first time.

Scheduled to enter service early next year, Norwegian Getaway is the second sister-ship to Norwegian’s jaw-dropping Norwegian Breakaway that made her debut in New York City this past May.

Where Norwegian Breakaway carried a distinctive New York vibe, Norwegian Getaway will have a vibrant Miami look and feel to her onboard amenities and her beautiful hull artwork, which was visible for the first time yesterday in its entirety. Norwegian Getaway will be homeported in Miami when she embarks on her first revenue cruise from that city on February 8, 2014.

There are also short, one-day preview cruises scheduled in January 2014 from Amsterdam, Netherlands and Southampton, England before a winter Westbound transatlantic crossing from Southampton to New York City.

Norwegian hit a real home run with Norwegian Breakaway this past May. Quite possibly the best ship the line has ever built, Norwegian Getaway will include popular features like The Waterfront and 678 Ocean Place, Norwegian’s brand-new entertainment and dining venue concept that allows for both indoor and outdoor seating in nearly every major venue, along with the ability for cruising traditionalists to enjoy one of the most open and unobstructed promenade decks afloat.
