This was our second Getaway, sailing the eastern itinerary in March. We loved our aft facing balcony (9920) so much the first time that we booked it again. Huge balcony, two chairs, two loungers and a table. The only negative was that ... Read more

I went on the Getaway with a friend. She purchased the cruise at a charity event and way over paid for it! As the date of our cruise got closer, we could have purchased the cruise for a fraction of the price. There were restrictions as to ... Read more

We picked this cruise first of all because it was the date we wanted to sail but foremost was that we had such a great time on the Norwegian Spirit in the Mediterranean last September. Even though the Getaway is a newer ship we did not ... Read more

This cruise was amazing. I had been on the NCL Sky earlier this year and loved the experience and customer service. Everyone on board the Getaway was great and always happy and with a smile on my face. I had the unlimited beverage package ... Read more

Let me first say, I have been loyal to Royal for years, proud of my Diamond Plus status. That said, I had an expired cruise credit with NCL from a few years ago. So I started the low prices in September with an additional $250. credit. ... Read more

We scheduled our flight to arrive in Miami the day before our cruise - in general a good precaution in case of a flight delay that on a same day flight could cause you to miss the boat. In our case, it was a necessity since we were flying ... Read more

This was our 1st cruise ever and we chose Norwegian due to the freestyle dining and the "free at sea" promotion. The ship had an elegant décor and was easy to get around on. We had only 2 shore excursions planned and the ... Read more

We had a great time. This was our first NCL cruise. Loved the thermal suite in the spa - best decision of the cruise! The only thing that disappointed us was the service on this ship. It wasn't bad; it just wasn't personable. For ... Read more

The Getaway is definitely a ship worth booking. My main reason in booking this western caribbean cruise (Miami, Roatan, Belize, Costa Maya, and Cozumel was the price, and the fact that it has the studios for solo travelers. However, NCL ... Read more
