Norwegian Cruise Line is committed to raising the bar on what can be expected from at-sea entertainment. We can and do deliver A-list productions with amazing directors like Rachelle Rak, Patti Wilcox, and Tiger Martina, with competitive salaries and professional working environments (and of course, the bonus of cruising to some of the world’s most beautiful destinations!). It’s an exciting time to become a part of the Norwegian family.
The Norwegian Getaway is Norwegian Cruise Line’s latest ship! In addition to a brand-new production of LEGALLY BLONDE, entertainment on the ship will include ILLUSIONARIUM, a dining/entertainment experience devoted to magic and illusion, a water park with five slides, including a freefall drop, two twister slides, and a multi-level elevated ropes course, and a Grammy-themed venue as part of NCL’s partnership with the Grammy Awards. Foodies setting sail can feast in their choice of 26 incredible dining options, including one of Celebrity Chef and Food Network star Geoffrey Zakarian’s three dining concepts: Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian; Ocean Blue on the Waterfront and The Raw Bar. The end of each cruise will be marked by a fireworks display at sea. Ports of call on this fantastic new vessel include: Phillipsburg, St. Maarten; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Nassau, Bahamas.
