More Miami touches for Norwegian Getaway

 

mlambert@MiamiHerald.com

Several Miami-themed bars and restaurants will be on the Norwegian Getaway when it debuts in January. Norwegian Cruise Line on Tuesday announced two bars and two restaurants unique to the new ship, which will sail out of Miami year-round:

They are the Tropicana Room, a supper club inspired by Miami Beach nightlife of the 1940s and ‘50s; Flamingo Bar & Grill, serving food with a Latin flair; Sunset Bar, inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s Key West; and Sugarcane Bar, which will serve mojitos and rum-based cocktails in an island-themed setting.

Dining at both restaurants will be included in the basic cruise fare.

Getaway is sister ship to the Norwegian Breakaway, the first ship in its class, which was inaugurated in April in New York, its home port. Breakaway has a number of features, from the New York skyline painted on the hull to a restaurant by a New York chef, that tie it to the city.

Likewise, Norwegian Getaway has a range of Florida-themed features, some of which were already announced. They include a hull painted with a tropical seascape; other artworks depicting South Florida scenes; and Latin-inspired dance productions. The ship has some other unique features that are not Miami-specific — the Grammy Experience at sea, curated by the Grammy Museum; the musical Legally Blonde; and the Illusionarium, a dinner club with magicians.

Norwegian Getaway will do Caribbean cruises out of PortMiami. It will be the largest cruise ship to home port year-round in Miami.

In addition to the Breakaway and Getaway, two more Breakaway-class ships are on order.

    Reigning rain wrap

    Sometimes a raincoat is too bulky to schlep; a plastic poncho too tacky. That may be just the time for a RainRap. This softer, classier water-repellant polyester wrapping poncho has a double-sided button closure and a built-in hood. And it’s reversible, with a range of bright and/or muted color combinations, from black/grey to hot pink/orange, and a black/leopard print. The RainRap has a cape-like flow and drapes to about 26 inches in length at the back. A longer version, the SpiritRap is 35 inches long, and comes in a variety of team color combinations for wet days at the stadium. The fast-drying light-weight (8 ounces) cover-up is one-size-fits-all and stashes in an included travel pouch, which in turn stashes unobtrusively in a purse or knapsack until needed.
