Complete Guide to Norwegian Getaway Bars
The Norwegian Getaway Bars provide plenty of drink options for all types of travelers. From an Irish pub, to a mojito bar, to an exclusive ice bar, there are plenty of craft cocktails to be had during your cruise. So, in the name of research, we set off to sample each bar and drink menu in our traditional “Drink Around the Ship” fashion. See the complete menus from all the Norwegian Getaway Bars with plenty of photos. Cheers!
Norwegian Escape Bars
Atrium Bar– This bar, located in the Atrium, is in the center of all the action. Sip a cocktail while people watching, listen to some live music, partake in ship activities and game shows, or simply just relax at this casual spot. The Atrium Bar serves the standard Norwegian Getaway bar menu, along with most of the other indoor venues. During the course of the week, we managed to sample most of the drink offerings on the menu with our favorites being the Rebellious Fish and Long Island Iced Tea.

Mixx Bar– This bar, located between the Taste and Savor main dining rooms, is the perfect spot to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail in a trendy, modern atmosphere, perhaps while listening to some live piano music nearby. Mixx also offers the standard bar menu, so be sure to order up your favorite cocktail to get the evening started off right.

Headliners– This venue holds multiple comedy shows during the course of the week, featuring two different comedians. Headliners also doubles as the Howl at the Moon piano bar on opposite evenings. The dueling piano players and comedy acts are both worth a trip to this venue, and you might as well grab a drink while you are there! The more energetic the crowd, the better the show.

Illusionarium- This venue full of mystery and magic serves as the setting for the popular dinner show available for an upcharge. Included in the price of the Illusionarium is a pre fixe meal and a show featuring magicians and mentalists. Prior to the performance, you will want to place your drink orders as service will be limited during the show, perhaps you will want to try the featured Matador cocktail.

O’Sheehan’s Neighborhood Bar & Grill– This Irish themed pub is the perfect place to grab a beer and enjoy some comfort food any time of day. While sipping on your favorite drink, you can also enjoy a game on the TV screens or challenge friends to a round of bowling. We visited this cruiser favorite several times during our cruise for breakfast, lunch, and of course drinks!

Bar 21- This bar is located near all the action at the Casino. So whether you want to play some video slots while chilling at the bar or grab a drink before heading to your favorite game, make sure to cross it off your drink around the ship. Again, a full bar and standard drink menu are offered at this location, with very little crowds.

Bliss Ultra Lounge- The night club venue on Norwegian Getaway, Bliss is the place to dance it up until the wee hours of the morning.

Getaway Theater– Also located on deck 7 is the main theater where the signature productions of Burn the Floor and Million Dollar Quartet take place, in addition to other cruise activities. There is a full bar located at the rear of the theater, but there are also plenty of servers walking around to take your order. Enjoy your beverage of choice; ours were a long island iced tea and a mudslide.

Prime Meridian- This bar, located between Moderno and Cagney’s restaurants, is another perfect spot to grab a pre-dinner drink or relax for a bit following dinner before heading off to your next destination. You might need a drink to wash down all the food you will be eating at these two restaurants.

Sugarcane Mojito Bar- Located in the center of all the action, the Sugarcane Mojito Bar offers seating in 678 Ocean Place as well as on the Waterfront.

We visited Margaritaville at Sea on Norwegian Getaway several times during our cruise sampling many of the featured cocktails. You can’t go wrong with a Who’s to Blame margarita in a blender cup, a Perfect Margarita, a Havanas and Bananas, or just about any other cocktail offered here. The best part is that they are all included in the Ultimate Beverage Package (additional charges apply for the blender cup)!

Spice H2O- This adult’s only area boasts a relaxing atmosphere with a unique water feature during the day and turns into the hottest party at night with cruiser favorites like the 80’s party and GLOW party.

Sundeck Bar- This under the radar bar is located right outside of the entrance for the Vibe Beach Club and below the sundeck. If you are seeking some rest and relaxation away from the crowds in this area of the ship, this will be your go to spot for some afternoon adult beverages.
