New build NCL Getaway


Hi All,
a fire broke out this afternoon local time at the building hall #2 in which the Nowrwegian Getwaya is under construction. meyer Werft own firebrigade was unable to estinguish the fire, local fire trucks of nearby communities were called to assist. According to Mer Werft press fire broke out in the engine room, no one was hurt. Extend of the damage seems slight as Meyer confirmed delivery of the vessel for 2014 as planned.

Sorry to hear this. Perhaps I shouldn't be but I'm always surprised when a major mishap occurs on a ship during construction or re-building. Glad construction won't be delayed.


If teh rpices for the Getaway are in line with the Breakaway Ill never sail it. Way too expensive. Hope the Breakaway comes downin price, its out of NY where I live but right now tooexpensive so I guess I will keep sailing on the Gem!
