Norwegian Getaway - Great for Families 

Norwegian Getaway - Great for Families

As part of our ongoing commitment to our valued clients, Purple Palm Vacations spends a lot of time learning about the latest and greatest cruise ships by visiting them firsthand. Recently we had the pleasure of touring the Norwegian Getaway, sailing the Caribbean from Miami since 2014. This beautiful ship is family dream vacation with something fun for everyone.

We Recommend This Ship For:  Families with Children of all ages, Family Reunions, Solo Travelers, and Active Couples
