Latina Mom Bloggers Joins Norwegian Getaway for Fabulous Miami Christening #UltimateGetaway

For those of you who know the Latina Mom Bloggers team you know how difficult it can be for us to getaway to media events. But when our friends from Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) invited us to the Miami Christening of their newest ship – the Norwegian Getaway – we couldn’t pass it up.

We each enjoyed two distinct experiences on the ship. Cristy’s husband joined her for some adult time away from the kids, while Angela spent some one-on-one time bonding with her 5 year-old daughter.

Star-Studded Miami Christening

The Christening event’s master of ceremonies was Brooke Burke-Charvet, co-host of “Dancing with the Stars,” who shared the stage with Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer Kevin Sheehan and the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders – who are also the ship’s official Godmothers. The event ended with a spectacular musical performance by Miami’s own Pitbull.

After the Christening, each of us checked out the Norwegian Getaway to see just what she had to offer and were amazed by the variety of entertainment and dining activities.

Entertainment Options Abound

Angela and Briani made their way to The Illusionarium, a unique dining and magic show that invites guests to experience the fascinating world of magic and mystique. The focal point of the Illusionarium is a 30′ diameter video dome that transports the audience to mystical places, while making them feel like they’re part of the show. The show included top-notch magicians from around the world along with special effects for a one-of-a-kind dining experience that ranks among the best magic shows that I’ve ever seen.

If you’re not in the mood for a show with your meal, the Norwegian Getaway boasts more than 28 dining venues with a variety of food options that even the pickiest foodies will surely enjoy.

Family Fun for All Ages

Guests sailing on the Norwegian Getaway will have the opportunity to interact with some of their favorite Nickelodeon characters including SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Diego among others, plus they’ll be able to participate in some very cool, hands on Nickelodeon experiences. If your family loves water activities then you won’t want to miss the all-new pirate themed Nickelodeon Kids’ Aqua Park where your little ones can cool off and splash around with Nickelodeon characters.

Romantic Getaway From the Kids 

Cristy and her husband of 18 years Chris, rarely get a moment away from their tween-age twin daughters. Cruising allows couples and adults an opportunity to have great fun without worrying about driving home or coming home too late! While onboard they enjoyed the excellent live music options including Bliss Ultra Lounge, the super unique piano playing talent at Headliners Comedy Club and of course the very Miami-themed Sugarcane Mojito Bar.

Norwegian Getaway will sail seven-day cruises from Miami to the Eastern Caribbean, with ports of call including Philipsburg, St. Maarten; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Nassau, Bahamas. All of which would make the #UltimateGetaway for our Latina Mom Bloggers families and yours!
