Belize has welcomed the Norwegian Getaway in its first call to the Caribbean destination.
The ship arrived with 4,360 passengers last week and hosted an on-board plaque exchange ceremony between the Belize Tourism Board and Captain Rune Myre of the Norwegian Getaway.
The 1,068-foot Getaway was built in 2014 and hosts 1,640 crew on board.
It sails seven-day Western Caribbean cruises from Miami and is expected to make 22 more calls to Belize between May and December 2016.
The ship offers a variety of amenities including The Waterfront, an industry-first open-air promenade designed to connect guests with the ocean; twenty-eight dining options; five water slides; and a three-level sports complex.
