Norwegian Getaway

The 4,000-passenger family ship Norwegian Getaway, from Norwegian Cruise Line, is an entertainment hothouse, with the chance to see award-winners perform at the Grammy Experience. There’s also a three-story sports complex with water park and fireworks on every sailing. Add to that 27 dining options and accommodation for everyone from singles to families, and you have quite a cruise ship.
