We sailed Norwegian Last year and enjoyed it tremendously! This year was even better! We became members of the Vibe Beach Bar and it made the cruise for us. We wanted a quiet, gentle cruise and the Vibe Beach Bar with Jeffrey, Ricky, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the NCL reputation and the ports and scheduling. We had been on the Sky last year and while we did not have a great experience were encouraged to try a larger and newer ship. In many ways we were quite ... Read more

Vacation Cruise was for a group of 6 couples, celebrating multiple birthdays. Cruise was far from all inclusive as our bill at the end of the week was almost $700 and this was with the beverage package thrown into the original package ... Read more

Getting on and off the ship was excellent. The free style dining was great. Food overall was excellent. The 24/7 Irish Pub was a great bonus, buffett food was above average, and specialty restaurants were amazing. The lines in the ... Read more

I chose the Getaway to try out a big newer ship. I am usually a loyal Royal Caribbean customer but I did not like the ports or the time in ports on the bigger newer RC ships. This cruise had two days at sea and one day at each, Roatan, ... Read more

Boarding was cramped not well layed out to check people in elbow to elbow at check in. If it were to or special access we would have waited in long lines in a crowded room. The cruise line need to make better arrangements with port ... Read more

We were joining friends for a seven day cruise vacation. They chose NCL Getaway because of the date and the price. The embarkation was very easy and quick. We were in our cabin within half an hour of arriving at the cruise terminal. ... Read more

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

The 7 Day Western Caribbean Cruise from Norwegian was my first ever cruise. I traveled with my husband and several of my in-laws. My husband actually paid for the cruise and all the excursions we had, so I'm not exactly familiar with how ... Read more

Not a big fan of Norwegian Cruise Lines. This is our second cruise with Norwegian. The Getaway is a fairly new and absolutely beautiful ship, but as with my previous experience with Norwegian, the service is horrendous (with exception of ... Read more

We had a large group of 11 people cruising so that could have impacted our experience, but some things just weren't up to par even if you were cruising with a smaller family. Embarkation in Miami was fine. It seemed well organized, but ... Read more

Well, I have wanted to do the Western Caribbean trip for a while. Got on the Getaway, but ended up with mixed feelings. Room safety: Don't assume or take it for granted that your belongings are safe, even inside the safe. It is a big ... 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
