Norwegian Cruise Line cut the steel with a plasma torch for their upcoming 4,000-passenger Norwegian Getaway at a shipyard in Papenburg, Germany on Friday. 144,00-ton Norwegian Getaway is the second of two of the Norwegian cruise ships.
“Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway are going to revolutionize the cruise industry with their spectacular design and unique offerings,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian’s chief executive officer. “Cutting the first piece of steel for Norwegian Getaway takes us one step closer to having this ship join our fleet in 2014 and begin sailing year-round from Miami, the cruise capital of the world.”
Norwegian Getaway is set for debut in Spring 2014. Sister ship Norwegian Breakaway will homeport in New York City in May 2013.
