My husband and I have always enjoyed cruising and just being on the boat but NCL Getaway was the worst boat we have ever been on. The Getaway is one of NCL's mega ships and it is ALL about money. The crew is constantly trying to sell ... Read more

Once again NCL continues to impress us. This is our second time on the Getaway and once again we thoroughly enjoyed it. The first time was during its inaugural season 18 months ago and was about the ship. This time it was all about the ... Read more

The Getaway is a good ship and we had a great time. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious and the comedians were great. We went to their house magic show and it was not for us (beware, there is a pre-set dinner menu) but I can ... Read more

After reading some previous reviews of the Getaway, I admit to being leery about the ship. However, I found everything to be done really well considering the number of people on board. Both embarkation & disembarkation simple, ... Read more

Honestly this was the best vacation I have ever taken! The ship in general had a great layout and had A LOT of things to do! There were a lot of teens and I was able to make friends very easily. But if you aren't a teen/don't want to be on ... Read more

My husband and I earned a free cruise through the company for which I work through and were excited to experience freestyle dining, the Norwegian service and amenities. Of course, we were more excited just to get away and have our phones ... Read more

So like most of you I read a lot of reviews for the Getaway claiming poor, inattentive service, and at this point I am convinced 90% of those are competing cruise lines trying to sandbag. I am a very picky traveler and have little patience ... Read more

First, I was worried going into this cruise. It was our first time on Norwegian and we were going on Spring Break. After reading reviews, I was worried about finding deck chairs, lines at bars, getting into entertainment, etc. Let me ... Read more

Let me start by saying that a more appropriate name for this ship should be NCL - No Customer Loyalty, or Service for that matter. I hate to be a negative nelly, and you may look at my review and think "wow, she's really upset" ... Read more

I have cruised with Crystal, Carnival, Princess and Disney. This was our first Norwegian Cruise. I selected the Getaway during Spring Break for my kids aged 14, 12 and 10. We really enjoyed Disney a few years back but thought that ... Read more

Just returned for the Getaway. Sailed 3/27. We purchased a guarantee cabin at a no frills price that was offered. Booked only 10 days before the sailing and were fortunate to get a mid-ship balcony room for less than in-season rate for an ... Read more

I sailed the Norwegian Getaway from March 29 - April 3rd. It was my first cruise and I went on my own. I chose the Getaway because they had Studio cabins for solo travelers, which is why I flew to Miami for this trip. Overall, I ... Read more

This was our first time taking a cruise and it was so much fun! The ports were excellent, the ship, pools, deck and food were all wonderful. My kids loved the rope obstacle course and water slides the best. The food was really good. We ... Read more

This was the first cruise we've taken 2 adults, 1 child (10). We weren't sure how we would like cruising since we usually like to drive around and explore when we travel. We were very happy with this first experience, and very pleased ... Read more

We had a nice week. Had to skip private island due to weather. Still not a big fan of Jamacia after years away. Grand Cayman was busy and the local say it's getting worse but you can't beat the water. It's beautiful. Cozemel was as ... Read more

We loved our Cruise on the Getaway back in 2015 so much so that we booked again for 2016. But something about this adventure missed the mark for us. We had a good time but some minor annoyances were new this year... couldn't quite put our ... Read more
