Attention seafaring Super Bowl fans, here's a chance to watch the big game from a behemoth ship. The recently launched Norwegian Getaway has been transformed into a floating Bud Light Hotel which will host football buffs from January 30 to February 2, 2014 at Pier 88 in New York.
Part of the NCL Miami-based cruise line, the 145,655 gross ton, 4000-passenger Norwegian Getaway has been referred to as "Miami’s ultimate ship" because she embodies the essence of her tropical hometown with hull artwork by the city's own David “LEBO” Le Batard, which features a whimsical mermaid holding the sun above the waves.
During her regular sailing schedule from Miami the ship will offer groundbreaking entertainment such as he GRAMMY® Experience at Sea, which will include artifacts chosen and curated by the GRAMMY Museum® along with live performances by past GRAMMY winners and nominees, among others. Another first of its kind at sea, The Illusionarium is an all-new dining and entertainment experience that will envelop guests in the fascinating world of magic, inviting them to experience the astonishing illusions of world-class magicians and supernatural special effects. In addition, Norwegian Getaway boasts sizzling Latin-inspired dance productions by Broadway sensation, Burn the Floor; performances of the seven-time Tony Award winners and lots more.
The ship also hosts 27 dining options, including Celebrity Chef and Food Network star Geoffrey Zakarian’s three dining concepts: Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian; Ocean Blue on the Waterfront and The Raw Bar. Buddy Valastro, star of the popular TLC series “Cake Boss” also has an outpost of his famous Carlo’s Bakery onboard, serving up delicious treats like cannolis, lobster tails and specialty cakes.
For families, Nickelodeon®, the number-one entertainment brand for kids, is on board and includes a variety of exciting interactive experiences, along with the opportunity to meet SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, Dora the Explorer and Diego, among other favorites. Norwegian Getaway also includes an all new pirate-themed Nickelodeon Kids’ Aqua Park where children can cool off with colorful, whimsical and larger than life Nickelodeon characters from Bikini.
