MIAMI – August 27, 2014 – Norwegian Cruise Line is bringing the excitement and innovation of its newest ship Norwegian Getaway to Sun Life Stadium this football season, announcing today the expansion of its partnership as the Official Cruise Line of the Miami Dolphins.
The highlight of this new collaboration will be the “Ultimate Getaway Fan Experience,” an interactive opportunity for Miami Dolphins fans to “step aboard” some of Norwegian Getaway’s most thrilling onboard activities such as the Free Fall, bungee trampoline, rock wall, spider mountain and more, prior to each home game at the Grand Plaza at Sun Life Stadium.
The Ultimate Getaway Fan Experience will feature a different onboard attraction at each Miami Dolphins home game beginning September 7. In addition, fans will be able to snap their photo in front of a virtual Norwegian Getaway backdrop, hear the latest news and happenings on the new ship and current promotions from Norwegian brand ambassadors, and enter a sweepstakes for the chance to win a cruise for four on Norwegian Getaway or the all-new Norwegian Escape, coming to Miami in Fall 2015.
“Norwegian is looking forward to another exciting season in partnership with our hometown team, the Miami Dolphins,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s CEO. “As the official godmothers of Norwegian Getaway, the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders bring the team spirit onboard to our guests, so we are bringing a sampling of the Norwegian Getaway experience to fans at every Dolphins home game this season.”
As the largest ship to homeport year-round at PortMiami, Norwegian Getaway features exclusive onboard activities and features that truly capture the spirit of her hometown. From the ship’s hull artwork designed by local artist David “LEBO” Le Batard, to entertainment featuring the Latin-inspired hit Broadway dance sensation Burn The Floor, along with the tastes of the Magic City including signature libations at the Sugarcane Mojito Bar and Cuban favorites served at the Flamingo Grill, Norwegian Getaway is truly Miami’s ultimate ship.
Norwegian Cruise Line will also expand its partnership as the sole title sponsor of the Miami Dolphins’ Everyday Military Heroes Salute, recognizing a military hero in the second quarter of each home game and awarding them with a cruise for two on Norwegian Getaway.
“Norwegian Cruise Line has been a valuable partner for the Miami Dolphins,” team Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Jeremy Walls said. “This expansion to include the Ultimate Getaway Fan Experience only enhances the benefits of being a Miami Dolphins fan. We’re excited to continue this thriving relationship.”
As a part of the expanded sponsorship program, Norwegian Cruise Line will also have a strong presence throughout Sun Life Stadium, from permanent signage on the high definition scoreboard to engaging videos that showcase the company’s signature Freestyle Cruising to fans on the Stadium Vision monitors located throughout the venue.
