Our 3rd cruise with NCL, but last one (with them) was 4 years ago. For first-timers, I'm sure everything was probably "wonderful" (as first-timers have no clue to what things were like years ago, and are usually overwhelmed with ... Read more

Booked this on a whim due to free drink package! Never been on a ship this large so i was a little leery, but was pleasantly surprised! It didn't seem crowded as I had expected. Pool area was tight but we didn't partake of the ... Read more

We spent the past week on a Best Friends "50th Birthday" Cruise. We were mid ship with connecting rooms for 4 people. I have cruised NCL on three separate occasions, including the Escape last year and have loved the cruise. ... Read more

I've written a lot below to hopefully help answer some of the questions we had as first-timers. This was our first cruise with Norwegian and we were very impressed with everything about the Getaway which was built in 2014. I rated the ... Read more

This was my 10th cruise and my first with NCL. What a beautiful ship. Great food, great something for every age group to enjoy. Loved the more relaxed feel of freestyle cruising. Will certainly be back. I didn't the first week with my ... Read more

My family of 5 (3 adults, 2 kids) just returned from the Norwegian sailing Jan 29-Feb5 and had a great time. To get straight to the point, the Getaway was a great ship, with everything you expect from a cruise ship and more and it made ... Read more

I specifically chose this cruise for the sole purpose of visiting the beaches on islands I hadn't yet been to - especially to see Norwegian's newest island "Harvest Caye". Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. It poured ... Read more

Took the January 29th - February 5th cruise to the Western Caribbean. Ports of call were Roatan, Harvest Cay (more on that later), Costa Maya and Cozumel. Thought it would be good to try some new ports, as Cozumel is the only port I've ... Read more

The crew on Norwegian Getaway were very friendly and courteous. Many places to dine and our cabin was always neatly cleaned and stocked with essentials. Both embarkation and disembarkation were very easy. Plenty of entertainment and lots ... Read more

In 2016 we had been on a Thomson cruise and felt we needed to try a bigger better ship. We thought the embarkation was quite chaotic, disembarking worked much better. Our cabin & bathroom were small but adequate. We were on deck 5 ... Read more

We traveled with three generations ranging in age from 12 to 74. We really liked the Getaway and range of activities that were going on. We did get a little frustrated about all of the extra costs while onboard...they really start to add ... Read more

Arrived to the port at around 12:30, embarkation was smooth and quick and we soon found ourselves in Margaritaville enjoying yummy fish tacos and a couple of cold ones. Love the design of this ship, this is why we keep returning. So ... Read more

We enjoyed our cruise but see the Norwegian changes as going down hill. We have taken several (probably 5) Norwegian cruises and they just don't offer the service they use to. This was our first time on a larger ship and I think we ... Read more

Siblings cruise once a year. Drove to Miami and arrived later than we expected. This was a plus since check-in line wasn't too long. Went right up to the buffet and had a tasty lunch. Yes, it was crowded, but we got a table easily. ... Read more

My review is from a fairly new cruiser's point of view. My wife and I have sailed on Royal Caribbean three times and and on Norwegian's Epic. As already mentioned in several posts, the Getaway is a huge ship with plenty of things to do. ... Read more

We are two couples who cruise together once a year. We always have fun and have cruised several different lines. We've been on the NCL Sun and love that ship, but thought we might like to try one of NCLs newer, larger ships. So we ... Read more

Ncl is lacking details such as having elevators only at the bow & stern sections of the ship. People were constantly complaining about the distance necessary to walk to/from the elevators. Other ships this size & smaller have 3-4 ... Read more
