N-Ice One, Norwegian!

Norwegian Cruise Line's new Norwegian Getaway, which will be the largest ship to homeport in Miami year-round when it makes its debut next February, will feature a true ice bar on board, featuring three dimensional icy elements inspired by the ship’s Magic City home. 

Kept at minus 8 degrees Celsius, the ship’s ice bar will feature Art Deco-style d├ęcor, reminiscent of Miami Beach’s famous Ocean Drive. In addition, through an exclusive partnership with SVEDKA Vodka and Inniskillin ice wine, the Ice Bar will be named “SVEDKA/Inniskillin Ice Bar” and will feature Florida-inspired speciality SVEDKA and Inniskillin ice wine cocktails.

Like sister ship Norwegian Breakaway, Getaway’s frozen chamber is guaranteed to give guests the ultimate chill. Adorned with South Florida-inspired elements such as the iconic South Beach skyline and palm trees etched into the icy walls, a “Welcome to Miami Beach” sign and a life-size alligator throne made entirely of ice, Getaway’s Ice Bar will be Miami’s coolest place to chill out. In addition, the entire bar, seating and glassware will all also be made of ice.

Located on deck eight, the SVEDKA/Inniskillin Ice Bar will accommodate approximately 25 guests at a time, who will don hooded coats and gloves to keep warm, since the Arctic-like room’s temperature will not rise above minus 8.

Entrance to the SVEDKA/Inniskillin Ice Bar can be reserved from 5.30-10.30pm nightly. The cost is $20 per person and includes two signature cocktails that will be served in specially-created glasses made entirely of ice.
