Editor's Note: As of January 2016, the Nickelodeon program will no longer be offered on Norwegian Getaway. Getaway simply oozes Miami, and that's exactly what Norwegian Cruise Line was going for when it ...

This was my first cruise ever and it was in celebration of my 25th birthday! I could not have had a better time! I truly loved it! The ship was great--everything felt new, clean, and fresh! It was truly a huge ship! We were very ... Read more

The cruise was disappointing. First, they have changed the meeting place for the solo cabins from the beautiful lounge to the Sunset Bar. A big mistake Almost no one showed up, just 3 or 4 travelers.. It was a crowded bar with minimal ... Read more

I choose this cruise for a college graduation gift for a family member. We booked two cabins and were limited on the cruises available out of Ft Lauderdale/Miami area for the specific time of interest so due to the constraints we sailed ... Read more

This was our first time cruising with Norwegian, so I wasn't really sure what to expect. When we first arrived at port we were a little underwhelmed, though it is more the doing of Miami's port area rather than the cruise line. Once on ... Read more

Just got off the Norwegian getaway yesterday and I cannot rave how awesome the trip/ship was. From the beginning the staff was amazing, the ship was awesome with so much to do and the food was great. My family and friends had a wonderful ... Read more

The drinks on the ship were of poor quality. The mixers for liquor drinks were poor quality. The juices on the ship were watered down, they were along the lines of flavored water. The food put out on the buffet was disgusting. It was very ... Read more

I've cruised with Holland America, Carnival, and Royal Caribbean but this itinerary was the best so I thought I'd give Norwegian a shot. Extremely overpriced for what you get. The food is nothing special and the entertainment was ... Read more

After a 3 night cruise on the Disney Magic and 4 nights on RC's Enchantment of the Seas, we decided to try one of the "mega" ships with Norwegian. Many of the things that I am rating lower are mostly because of the comparisons ... Read more

Pros - LeBristo is excellent, ship sailed extremely smoothly thru the ocean, shows were excellent. Cons - Bands & Music were over the top loud. The White Hot Party (now called Neon Party) is for kids (facepaints, glow sticks, ... Read more

I have to say having sailed the Norwegian Pearl last February I was super excited to get on the getaway. We booked a balcony room over a year in advance because we were so happy with the pearl. I think the getaway cruise was a slight let ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Norwegian and overall I would rate it pretty well. The Getaway is a beautiful ship with something to offer for everyone regardless of age or activity level. There were some aspects that were fantastic and ... Read more

Food and beverage quality not good at all. Many drinks were made from commercial mixers containing high fructose corn syrup, and didn't taste good at all. Some specialty restaurants were good, some were not good at all. The buffet was ... Read more

We loved our cruise! It was the first time the kids have been on a cruise and they have been forever spoiled and want all our vacations to be cruises now. They loved the water slides, ropes course, mini golf, basketball, bungee ... Read more

We wanted a short, simple getaway from Miami so we could drive from our Florida home. We never sailed or considered NCL but was told of "The Haven" by folks we met on a tour of France last year. We've sailed both Crystal ships, ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our honeymoon based on the destination - despite having an appealing offer from our best man to sail on the Allure of the Seas (Royal Caribbean) for close-to-nothing - and deeply regretted it. For one, the ship is ... Read more

Pluses: The food is excellent, and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Minuses: My bill had double charges for things I only purchased once, such as bingo and casino-related charges. Guest Services refused to refund me for ... Read more

I have always wanted to sail on the Breakaway since seeing her presented by the cruise consultant while aboard the Pearl. The Pearl has always been my favorite NCL ship, but after a week on the Breakaway, I would say it's a tie. The ... Read more

This is our second time on the Getaway. The embarkation had many issues, customs was searching the ship so we were severely delayed and the organization was extremely poor. However, the first time on the Getaway we walked right on the ship ... Read more

I have cruised before with NCL. I've gone to Alaska, Mediterranean and now the Caribbean cruise. The Getaway is the largest ship of 4000 people. I found a lot of lines and crowds to deal with traveling about the ship. The stateroom was a ... Read more

This was a first time cruise for me. The only other "large" vacation I have to compare it to was an all inclusive at Excellence Playa Mujeres outside Cancun 8 years ago. I will try to be objective and if you read the end of the ... Read more

Boarding was a nightmare. The line to enter the registration process was very long and most people were standing in the hot sun for hours. We were given a number of excuses for why the boarding was so delayed and jammed up, but not sure ... Read more
