Cruising with Cancer: One Couple’s Story of Restarts and Refills

By Kim Gantt, Cruise Consultant, The Cruise Web, Inc.

Kim and Dave in Nassau, BahamasThis past March my husband and I got a chance to escape the stress of our lives with a sailing on the brand new Norwegian Getaway. We weren’t sure we were going to make it, as just two weeks earlier my husband Dave was in the hospital.

But Dave spending time in the hospital is, unfortunately, not a surprising event anymore. You see, my husband is fighting brain cancer. He is one of only three people in the whole country who has survived more than six years with his certain type of tumor.

He is currently on steroids and taking an oral form of chemotherapy. Less than a year ago he was in a medically induced coma to “restart” his brain. He was suffering from seizures and couldn’t walk or eat without help.

This cruise was the break we needed. It allowed us to refill our tanks with energy. [Read more →]

We Went On a (Norwegian) Getaway!

A compilation by The Cruise Web employees.

Howl at the MoonWhile our getaway wasn’t very long, we got a true taste of what you can expect when you cruise on the brand new Norwegian Getaway, which is now sailing to the Caribbean weekly from Miami. Despite it being freezing in New York during our cruise (and actually seeing snow fall from our balconies), this ship is certainly hot.

We surveyed our team to find out what their favorite part of this jam-packed ship was. Keep reading to find out what will appeal to you on a Norwegian Getaway cruise.

Alex V.
My favorite part of the Norwegian Getaway was the ropes course during the day. The ropes course is the largest one at sea and is part of the 3-story sports complex which also has miniature golf, a rock climbing wall and a bungee trampoline. At night, the Howl at the Moon dueling piano bar was my favorite spot. [Read more →]

Getting Inside the Getaway

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

The Norwegian Getaway has already sailed over from Europe, where she was built, and is now off the shores of New York City, where she will serve as hotel for Superbowl fans.

Then she’ll make her way to sunny and warm Miami where she is the largest ship to call Miami home. In the past, cruise lines have made sister ships almost exact replica’s of one another, but Norwegian is breaking that mold with the Getaway who will have her own personality and set of unique features.

Looking Forward to the Getaway

A compilation by The Cruise Web employees.

A rendering of the Getaway. Photo courtesy of Norwegian Cruise Line. Sure you’ve heard about the Norwegian Breakaway, but have you met her sister, the Norwegian Getaway?

She is the Miami version of the Norwegian Breakaway. Miami plays a key role in her features, like her hull which is designed with images of the sun and sea. She also tips her hat to Miami’s moniker as the Magic City with the brand-new Illusionarium, a dinner theater space with an incredible video screen on the domed ceiling. There is a mojito bar and menu items featuring those Cuban flavors that are popular in Southern Florida.

To make sure everything is as promised, members of our Cruise Web team are taking a two-night cruise at the end of January to do some investigating. While onboard, each of our team members will be attending courses while eating, drinking, dancing and relaxing just like you will when you are onboard, and they’ll let us know what they think of the entire experience when they get back.

In the meantime, find out what they are most excited to explore on the Norwegian Getaway! [Read more →]

New Ships for 2014

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

A rendering of the Norwegian Getaway. Rendering courtesy of Norwegian Cruise Line. Wow, 2013 was a big year for new cruise ships. There was the debut of Norwegian’s Breakaway in New York City. HRH the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) christened the Royal Princess – Princess’ first new ship in almost a decade – and Viking River Cruises broke a Guinness record by christening 10 ships. Those were only the highlights, but 2014 looks like it might be just as exciting as 2013.

The first ship to make its debut will be the Norwegian Getaway. This is the sister ship to the Norwegian Breakaway, and while she will be similar to her sister in size and shape, the Getaway will have a personality all her own. For starters, the Getaway will be based out of Miami and will feature some of this beach city’s key aspects. She’ll have a lot of Latin flavor at the Flamingo Bar & Grill and the Sugarcane Mojito Bar, and music is all over this ship with the GRAMMY experience, where you’ll see live performances and memorabilia from your favorite rock stars. The ship will feature the first production of the musical  Legally Blonde at sea, and it will also have an incredible magic show at the Illusionarium with its domed video screen. [Read more →]
