As we have enjoyed cruising with NCL for years, we have gained not only Latitude points, but also a savy about ship cleanliness, food quality, show presentations, room stewards, etc. Our most recent trip to the Western Caribbean ... Read more

Overall, a great experience and I would not hesitate to do it again. Getaway is a beautiful ship. The main indoor atrium is called 678 Ocean Place and this is where you will find a lot of the entertainment as well as the nicer ... Read more

Another slice of heaven on the Getaway. Now a week since we've returned and still feeling the positive energy and effects of a great vacation on NCL Getaway. The Getaway has become our favorite ship for so many reasons (see other reviews ... Read more

The Getaway was our 3rd cruise this year and by far our favorite!! The service was fantastic and our cabin steward, Rhey made us happy everyday with our adorable towel animals and clean room (balcony room, mid-ship room #14782). We only ... Read more

Lots of options from food to entertainment. The main shows were great, they are really raising the bar on show quality. Our inside cabin 13623, was tucked away in a somewhat unusual inner corridor. Room was on smaller side, but ... Read more

Eight of us took a family cruise. Most everything was good except ship was too large for me, 5000 people, rather have about 2500-3000. Had to sign up for entertainment. Cruise director Scott was phenomenal in helping in this way, very ... Read more

We opted to join our daughter's family for this fun-filled cruise. The Getaway was selected for it's abundance of activities for younger kids. It would not normally be our style of cruising, but we did get to see some new places and it ... Read more

I cruise for the first time with NCL after being on Carnival twice previously. The Ship is gorgeous as its pretty new to the sea. The adult pool felt a little small for the size of the ship. The cabins were decent sized. (I had a balcony). ... Read more

After reading reviews we were very hesitant about booking this cruise. Boy were they wrong. Absolutely the best cruise I have been on. We were lucky enough to be one of the first ones on board and we headed straight to customer service to ... Read more

This is a beautiful ship. Our mini-suite with balcony was perfect. Unfortunately the service on Norwegian was not as good as I have experienced on Carnival or Royal Caribbean. The ANYTIME dining option is disappointing because you never ... Read more

The trip was awesome mainly due to the staff on this ship, they were exceptional. Friendly and professional. Everything was so clean the entire 7 days ( I don't know how they do it). The food was good not great but basically what ... Read more

We have cruised the Getaway before. There was a little physical issue in our lives and we wanted to go on a ship we were familiar with and the ports were not too far from the US. We booked the Haven category and had an ADA room. ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our anniversary. I have taken 8 cruises before. 1 on Carnival and 7 on RC the last one being Freedom of the seas. It took way to long to embark the ship. One hour and a half. Once on board it was very unorganized. ... Read more

We chose Norwegian after taking serval Royal Carribean cruises and seeing how they always have a party outside their boat as you are entering back after porting. However we were completely fooled to book with them. Let me say we are ... Read more

The Port stops were a great choice with a variety of shore excursions at each port. Silver was really inexpensive in Belize, not Costa Maya. Be sure to book shore excursions through NCL because the ship will wait for you to return from ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise and first on NCL. We had a very nice balcony cabin and did get it at an excellent price. Having never tried it before we decided we'd try booking a "guaranteed balcony" and ended up being upgraded to a ... Read more

So Many Red Flags... We were going to celebrate our 30th anniversary and wanted our children to join us. Logistically, this cruise as well as a Royal Caribbean fit the time schedule. We had already sailed the Royal itinerary and this ... Read more
