Norwegian reveals entertainment for Getaway

The Norwegian Getaway, coming to Miami in 2014, will have three new entertainment options.

At a news conference aboard the Norwegian Breakaway, which is making its debut in New York, Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Kevin Sheehan said the musical version of "Legally Blonde" will be a featured production on the Getaway.

In addition, a new version of a Breakaway show called "Burn the Floor" will be produced. "Burn the Floor Ballroom Reinvented" will be a mix of Latin dance and ballroom with vocals in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

Comedy on the Getaway will be supplied by Levity Entertainment Group, rather than Second City, as on the Breakaway. Sheehan said Norwegian is happy with Second City but that Levity is a leading name in comedy, booking more than 300 comedians a week at casinos, comedy clubs and events. That provides a deep supply of comic talent and lends itself to frequent changes in acts, he said.
