Norwegian Getaway
The 16th January 2014 was the final day the brand new Norwegian Getaway would be in Southampton.  She had arrived on the 14th, sailed on a one night cruise then had a travel agent/media cruise on the 15th (though several press had boarded on the 14th).  Now it was time to sail to New York where she had been chartered to be accommodation durin the Super Bowl and would be meeting Breakaway a couple of time.  After that, she would sail to her home port of Miami and begin her cruising career a week late.  First of all, some overdue photos, since I'd been onboard since she got there.  It rained just before reaching Dock Gate 8 and thankfully stopped while we were in Mayflower Park.
She was scheduled to sail at 5pm.  We went to Shore Road and timed it so we would be there before she was - only she was already passing as we crossed the railway line at 5.25pm!  Not long after that, the heavens opened and wind whipped up, making it difficult to take photos and even see her.  Once she disappeared from view as she passed Calshot, we headed home wet and miserable.
