Cruise Away on the Norwegian Getaway


I have always been skeptical about taking a cruise until now. My family and I had the opportunity to be one of the first people to board the Norwegian Getaway during a special day event with The Moms.


The ship hosts 16 floors of outstanding entertainment, restaurants and accommodations. We previewed a selection of entertainment including the Broadway hit Legally Blonde, Nickelodeon characters and Burn the Floor dancers.


You will never go hungry with 40 restaurants featuring international cuisine. Plus, special treats from Carlos's Bakery.

This week you're likely to let the kids indulge a bit on sweets. And guess what? More holidays are coming. The kids want sweets. Moms want the kids to eat well-balanced meals with plenty of nutrition. I rely on easy recipes that are ready in a flash with wholesome ingredients more

I was most excited to see the accommodations and the range of options. Each floor is themed, from Spa to Haven, with impressive decor and design. While the Haven Deluxe Owner Suite (larger than my Manhattan apartment) was my favorite, The Family Mini Suite with Balcony is definitely the best priced for the amenities. 


Boredom will never cross your mind on the Norwegian Getaway. The kids can stay entertained in Splash Academy or in the outdoor pool and water slides while you treat yourself at the spa, play a few games of poker, take up Karaoke in the Grammy Hall, watch a performance in the theatre or join in on a dueling piano match at the Comedy Club. Booking entertainment and dining is convenient and easy with the electronic wall boards located on each floor.


The Norwegian Getaway accommodates 4,700 people and has 1,600 staff, a ratio of 1:3, better than private schooling ratio in NYC, so you will certainly be taken care of. Happy Cruising!
