As usual, we needed to get out of Daytona during Bike Week, this year the best deal turned out to be on the Getaway out of Miami. We loved the ports, three (Roatan, Belize and Costa Maya) being new to us, Cozumel we've seen before. We got ... Read more

With the exception of the customer service area which was very good, the other service areas had no time for you unless they were taking your money. Sometimes to the point of being rude. The restaurant food was average, they would not ... Read more

We sailed this same itinerary last year on the Norwegian Star, but wanted a larger ship experience, so we chose the Getaway this year. This trip was much more enjoyable due to the roomier feel of the ship and the greater variety of on ... Read more

I've cruised with Norwegian several times in the past and always enjoyed it but last week was my first Norwegian cruise in last 2 years. I'm shocked at all the bad changes Norwegian has made so this is one cruise line I will never go on ... Read more

Our family wanted to try a different cruise line to compare the "freestyle" cruising options. Our family has cruised previously with Disney, but our primary choice is Royal Caribbean (RC). For our freestyle cruise choice, we ... Read more

Just returned to winter from a wonderful cruise on the NCL Getaway. I travelled with two of my best friends, all in our late-30's. We were all seeking a week of pure relaxation - so our primary focus was to read, lay in the sun, and stare ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and to try a different cruise line. While the itineraries were decent (Harvest Cay was over crowded and dissappionting), the ship was a teeming mass of humanity with insufficient design and amenities ... Read more

This was a friend's 60th birthday celebration so I did not actually choose this cruise but I have been on many NCL cruises so I thought it would be a good trip. There were 7 of us in the group and we had a good time together celebrating ... Read more

We did an NCL cruise aboard the Epic a few years ago also in the Western Caribbean and had a blast. Maybe my expectations were too high because of that, but I was disappointed this time. Arriving at the port, the gentleman handling our ... Read more

We just got back yesterday and are still feeling that cruise high! The whole trip was amazing. We got on board early to get passes for the Vibe and spent all day Sunday in port on the ship. We used this time to explore and meet some ... Read more

We sailed on the Getaway a couple of years ago and said we'd never do it again...but then some friends booked it and asked us to come along so we did. This experience was identical to the last one. NCL is doing a terrible job by adding ... Read more

Close to Miami during the winter and our offer of a free 3rd person was a good value with a family member visiting. Nice trip and great weather. Stateroom was disappointing, with very tired carpeting, mattress needed replacement, no plug ... Read more

This was our first NCL cruise. We have previously only sailed DCL. While we can afford those cruises, we no longer feel the value is there. This cruise was about $2,000 less than our last DCL cruise on the Fantasy in the same room type at ... Read more
