    Norwegian Getaway - Dining and Cuisine Overview

    The Norwegian Getaway has 28 different dining venues for its 4,000 guests. These diverse options include a wide range of cuisines and ambiance to suit everyone's tastes. Many of the venues will be familiar, like the main restaurants and the large buffet on the pool deck. Others like the Geoffrey Zakarian seafood restaurant and the magic-themed dinner show, are new to cruise travelers.

    One feature I really like is the number of restaurants with both indoor and outdoor seating. This option should be very popular on the ship's Caribbean itineraries.

    Illusionarium

    Illusionarium is an amazing magical show in a fascinating venue on deck 6 forward on the Norwegian Getaway that also includes dinner. The menu on the night I dined there included a starter of Mozzarella cheese, tomato, Mesclun greens, and balsamic vinegarette; main course of coconut shrimp, beef tenderloin, double baked potato, and broccoli; and dessert of a trilogy of delectable sweets. 

    However, at this dining venue the show of special effects, magic, and illusions and the unique venue are the stars, not the cuisine.

    Le Bistro French Restaurant

    Le Bistro is a Norwegian Cruise Line favorite, and this version is an excellent one. This signature French restaurant serves classic French cuisine and Mediterranean dishes. One interesting twist is Le Bistro's location on deck 6 midship in the 678 Ocean Place social hub of the Norwegian Getaway. I think many guests will enjoy the al fresco seating option, which provides great views of the three-story chandelier, "sidewalk", and constant flow of people.

    The 630-seat Tropicana Room is the Norwegian Getaway's largest dining venue. Its retro, glitzy decor includes photos of Miami Beach from the 1950's, a large dance floor, and huge windows overlooking the sea. This supper club also features a great floor show each evening performed by dancers from the "Burn the Floor" show. The menu in the Tropicana Room is similar to those seen in the main dining room of other larger cruise ships, with many selections and a nice variety.
