I travel with my husband and just under 2 year old daughter during thanksgiving week. Embarkation was pretty smooth. We arrived at around 11am and were on the boat in about 1 1/2hrs. I can't entirely say the same about disembarking ... Read more

This was our first cruise so I don't have a lot to compare it to, but as far as expectations go, I thought the Norwegian Getaway had everything you could want. There were enough restaurants on the ship that we didn't have time to try ... Read more

This was our 25th cruise, quite a few with Norwegian. There were 7 of us.Just like last year we took it mainly for our grand children,who enjoyed the cruise a lot. Otherwise a big ship and Miami is the worst combination. Positives ; the ... Read more

Norwegian is not "freestyle" at all! We had problems 2 months before we even went on our cruise. Customer service not helpful or knowledgeable. On board credit was lost because it was all put in one person's name so there is no ... Read more

I wish we could rate them with 4+1/2 stars ! We choose this cruise because of the sailing dates, ports of call and a promotional offer for alcohol package :-) It was the first cruise for my husband (I've cruised twice before). We both ... Read more

The ship was large but only felt crowded at peak times. The ship was very clean with no visible signs of rust or wear. The food was cruise average. The ports were a standard itinerary used by multiple cruise lines, nothing extra ordinary ... Read more

Did Norwegian Gem 8 years ago out of NYC and loved it. Chose this one due to perfect date for us and locations and prior NCL experience. BIGGEST COMPLAINT-Norwegian booked the entire Ship ESCAPE to a corporation, so they offered our ... Read more

I could've given this a 3 star for average; however, I look at these types of reviews as a reflection of the staff and the ship in general. With that being said...here we go! Check in at Miami was uneventful, the lines moved fairly ... Read more

Embarkation on the Getaway was rather lengthy, until my roommate noted that I was a gold member/didn't realize that and there was a very short line for those folks. Keep your eyes peeled for your status as it will save you easily 45 ... Read more

Overall this was a good cruise.. I've already made a deposit to take a cruise on Norweigian Escape next year. Still there were several things that could have made it a bad cruise, but none did. One thing is that the theater is at the ... Read more

I took a chartered cruise on Norwegian (Oct. 23- 30, 2016) and while I found the ship to be large with many convenient little places to stop/sit/enjoy which equated to options but not exactly what was needed for the large group expected or ... Read more

My girlfriend has never been on a cruise before and wanted to go on one. We chose Norwegian because of the promos they were offering as well as the price. The Ultimate Beverage Package was unbeatable. We also chose the $50 credit on all ... Read more

We were first time cruisers. 40’s, kids 9 and 12. So none of us was sure what to think. I decided to rate several areas that were important to me on 1-10 scale. We paid $2400 for a balcony room. Embarkation. Our first ... Read more

This was our second time on the Getaway. We enjoy the free unstructured dinner times and more casual dress at NCL. My husband and I found the food to be delicious. Much better than our first cruise. The food at the Specialty Restaurants ... Read more

After many cruises, this was our first time sailing on back to back (B2B) cruises. Sometimes 7 days is not enough. We were totally comfortable with the schedule the second week. Felt like a whole new sailing with new passengers. This ... Read more

Was looking for a reason to maybe switch from Royal Caribbean. This cruise did not give us what we thought: It advertises "Free to do what I want..." freestyle cruising. If you do not "schedule" everything before you ... Read more
