I'm an avid reviewer, beforehand and after. Fortunately, having a travel agent in the family, I ended up choosing Norwegian over Carnival. My wife and I have worked hard in our business and now have the luxury of being able to afford the ... Read more

I read all the reviews beforehand and I went looking to find something wrong and could not. I arrived at the Port at 11:50 am. I dropped my stuff off in my room at 1230. Embarkation for me was very efficient. Overall, the food ... Read more

This was my first NCL cruise and my last. Having about 100 cruise days on other lines, NCL left me less than impressed. I was traveling with extended family which are NCL cruisers, which had not been on Getaway before. They said this ... Read more

Being a mega ship, the Getaway has a multitude of activities and attractions to keep passengers busy, but you can never get away from the crowds. People had to essentially climb over each other to snag a deck chair or a table at the ... Read more

We went on this cruise to celebrate the 90th birthday of our friend. There were 18 in our group. Overall the ship was ok but we have been on cleaner ships. The public bathrooms could have been kept cleaner. If you wanted to get lounge ... Read more

We normally cruse with Princess or Royal Caribbean so my experience is relative to what I am accustomed to. We joined this cruise because we were joining a group trip and had no choice in the matter. Their group services organization was ... Read more

We planned to get to the ship earlier to avoid crowds, but due to delays with the airlines the night before our arrival was around noon. Despite this, our embarkation was smooth and the lines moved well, putting us on the ship in about 45 ... Read more

I chose this cruise to try out the studio cabin, and I liked the itinerary. The cruise took place over Christmas, and the ship tried to make it as festive as possible, but it still felt as though something was missing, and I did not feel ... Read more

We are seniors. My husband and I picked this cruise as our anniversary and Christmas gift to each other. Embarkation was a nightmare for us. When we arrived at the cruise terminal there were at least 1,000 passengers many with small ... Read more

We went on this cruise because of the ports of call. Unfortunately, at the first two it was raining so we did not go off the ship at Belize. We had been looking forward to exploring the new island area but not in the pouring rain. At ... Read more

I've never experienced so much waiting in all my life. The entire staff of NCL in inattentive and incompetent. Let's start with the embarkation experience. I selected a boarding time of 12:30 PM. I showed up a little early, but the lines ... Read more

The Embankment very smoothly the Disembarkation was a little rough, but that was because of everyone trying to run off the ship and U.S. Customs froze the line multiple times not NCL's fault. I took advantage of the NCL transfer service ... Read more
