Norwegian Getaway to have tropical hull art

Getaway hullHull art for the Norwegian Getaway will depict a mermaid holding the sun, along with pelicans and palm trees, Norwegian Cruise Line disclosed Monday.

Miami artist and muralist David Le Betard will execute the whimsical tropical ocean theme, which was unveiled at Le Batard’s studio in the city’s Wynwood area.

The Getaway is scheduled to launch in early 2014 and will sail year-round from Miami.

“Norwegian Getaway will be Miami’s ship and, therefore, we wanted to ensure that her hull was designed by artist with strong ties to Miami and the Latin community,” Norwegian CEO Kevin Sheehan said.

Le Batard paints in a style called “post-modern cartoon expressionism,” which according to Norwegian “combines cartoon imagery with bold color and unique linear composition.”

He has previously worked with Gibson Guitars, Ferrari and Harley-Davidson.
