Good cruise. Very small balcony - but good enough. Very narrow hallways - but good enough. Food was great. Second night at sea was seafood at the buffet - don't miss it, the shrimp was great and plentiful. The Tropicana dining room ... Read more

Aside from the Norwegian Getaway, I've been on five other cruises. 1 Disney, 3 Royal Caribbean, 1 Carnival. This cruise line definitely ranks up there with the Royal Caribbean however I think I would still rank Royal Caribbean in front ... Read more

Just fabulous!!!!!! My husband and I have been on 5 different cruise lines and for some reason, I was hesitant to try NCL. I booked the cruise on The Getaway and the minute we got on board I knew it would be amazing. Embarkation ... Read more

This was our first cruise on NCL and won't be our last! We loved NCL! The ship was beautiful, the food was delicious and you can't beat the Unlimited Drink Package. We were fortunate enough to stay in a Haven Suite and had full access ... Read more
