(2:13 p.m. EDT) – After a two-week dry dock that included millions of dollars in renovations, Norwegian Getaway completed its first sailing out of Copenhagen and is gearing up for its summer season of Scandinavian, Russia and Baltic sailing.
Getaway’s changes after its late May 2019 makeover include new venues and artwork, updated social spaces and refreshed accommodations and decor. The ship now features Norwegian’s first onboard, full-service Starbucks available in the European market and Syd Norman’s Pour House, a popular rock ‘n’ roll-themed entertainment venue. Also, nearly 800 pieces of art -- 20 percent of which are originals -- were added throughout the ship.
“Norwegian Getaway is the youngest ship in our fleet to cruise Europe this season,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “We are proud to showcase her and the new experience she delivers to guests exploring the region this summer.”
Getaway was renovated as part of The Norwegian Edge program, and finished work just three months after Norwegian Sky completed a dry dock in February 2019. Norwegian Spirit will be the last ship to be upgraded as part of the program, in January 2020.
