Norwegian Cruise Line's new state-of-the-art 4,000 passenger ship, Norwegian Getaway, is the largest ship to home port year-round in Miami. The Getaway is the second of the two Breakaway Class ships; her sister-ship, the Norwegian Breakaway, debuted April 2013 to rave reviews. As Miami's Ultimate Ship, she embodies the essence of her topical hometown with hull artwork by Miami's own David 'LEBO' Le Batard, which features a whimsical mermaid holding the sun above the waves. The Getaway offers seven-day Eastern Caribbean itineraries from PortMiami year-round.
