Norwegian Getaway, the newest ship of Norwegian Cruise Line was christened on February 7, 2014, by the ship’s godmothers, the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders. The ceremony included many other familiar names/faces and included an upbeat musical performance by musical superstar Armando Christian Perez aka Pitbull. Brooke Burke-Charvet, former co-host of “Dancing with the Stars,” was the event’s master of ceremonies.
Norwegian Getaway is the largest ship to homeport year-round in Miami. Throughout the christening ceremony, which took place in three themed venues around the ship, Norwegian Getaway’s Miami flair was on full display. The ship’s outdoor theater, Spice H20, transformed into the Magic City Lounge with the Miami skyline in the background, where Tito Puente Jr. started the party, followed by the dance cast of Burn the Floor. The Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders flipped the switch lighting up Miami and the bottle smashed against the side of the ship to officially christen her.
