Norwegian Getaway to New York for Superbowl

The 4,028-person Norwegian Getaway cruise ship — christened the Bud Light Hotel for the weekend — will dock at Pier 88 from Thursday, Jan. 30 to Monday, Feb. 3, housing thousands of football fans who plan to party in the city for the big game.

The ship — which will be filled with Bud Light partners, VIPs, and members of the general public who won tickets — will also host a series of concerts featuring the Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons and The Roots in a parking lot across from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

Norwegian Getaway recently finished construction in Germany. The unfinished Norwegian Getaway has been chartered by a private company during the week leading up to the 2014 Super Bowl, and will make a transatlantic voyage in January to New York City instead of Miami, Norwegian Cruise Line said. As a result, a previously scheduled inaugural cruise on Feb. 1 from Miami has been canceled.
