Norwegian Getaway, the largest ship to homeport year-round at PortMiami, has officially arrived in Miami and begun its first voyage.

The ship began what will be a weekly schedule of seven-day cruises to the Eastern Caribbean on Saturday.

The ship was christened on Friday with a ceremony including the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders, Brooke Burke-Charvate and Miami-born musician Armando Christian Perez aka Pitbull.

“Miami’s ship is home and we couldn’t be more proud to bring this spectacular vessel to this electric city,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer, in a release. “We thank Miami-Dade County for this warm welcome and the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders for christening this beautiful ship and are looking forward to a very successful inaugural season.”

It is the first cruise ship to feature the “Grammy Experience at Sea,” which includes artifacts chosen and curated by the Grammy Museum, and performances of the musical Legally Blonde, among other amenities.
