This was my first time in a Norwegian. I have mixed feelings with this one. During the first 3 days, the service was terrible. First day only 2 towels in the room, safe was locked and they came to fix it after several calls to Guest ... Read more

There were 4 of us travelling together - myself, my husband and 7 & 9 year old daughters. The only other cruise we had been on was a Royal Carribean cruise last year. Overall this was a good experience, and we had lots of fun, but ... Read more

This was our fourth Norwegian cruise and first time on the Getaway. We have been on the Epic (2) and the Escape (1). We enjoy all the activities the big ships have to offer. Embarkation was somewhat of a mess. We went through ... Read more

Google translation... sorry about that! First cruise. I can not compare, so it's hard to comment. What I liked most was the buffet. A week of exceptional culinary gastronomy. The boat was very quiet, clean and stable. What I liked less ... Read more

We took the seven day Western Caribbean cruise on the Getaway. My husband and two teenagers had never been on a cruise, primarily because cruising was never high on the list for our active family when it came to vacations. We took my Mom ... Read more

On our second time on the Getaway, the first was in a Haven Penthouse suite in 2015. Would a regular stateroom outside of the Haven measure up? It did, as the service we received was just as good. Although it had fewer bells and whistles, ... Read more

We have cruised in the past with Carnival, Princess, Celebrity, and Oceania. Due to a last minute cancellation of a previously booked cruise, we opted to switch lines and give Norwegian a try. The phone reservation with Norwegian was ... Read more

Itinerary: been there, done that; but we booked it intentionally to enjoy different areas of the ports we had already visited: -Roatan Bay: we took a boat out to snorkel Blue Channel; amazing sea life; saw a multitude of fish and ... Read more

My wife and I booked a 7 day cruise on the Norwegian Getaway with 2 of our kids. The price seemed good for two cabins (one with a balcony) drink packages for all, and 3 specialty meals. Pro: Emarkation was a breeze. Ship was new and ... Read more

Single 50s guy travelling solo, looking for a quick dash into the sun. It was a sold out cruise so I got pretty much what I expected when I booked a last minute, guaranteed inside. Booked into Cabin 5705, very front, bottom deck. ... Read more

This ship was too crowded. I was on the Getaway. One tiny pool and limited loungers. We had a group of 11 and could not get diner reservations. Limited shows and activities. Areas for kids were pitiful as well. There was not a comfortable ... Read more

NCL is the cruise line of choice for our family and Miami has been the favored embarkation or departure city. We prefer to fly into Ft. Lauderdale (FLA) and stay there as well. KSA Tours is the shuttle service of choice for their ... Read more

We selected the NCL Getaway because of the exciting on board activities and the new Free Style dining option. The price point is more economical than Disney. While the ship is absolutely beautiful, the passenger: crew ratio seemed greater ... Read more

This is a great ship for a first time cruiser - or family with younger kids they would like to take on a great vacation. For an experienced cruiser such as myself - the ship was over crowded (4800 guests on board!) - food was average at ... Read more

First, we had a great vacation, but this review is more about the ship. I was traveling with my wife and 2 boys, age 7 and 9. My wife and I have been on NCL and Princess and 1 Disney cruise with the boys. It became apparent ... Read more

As a "big time" cruiser, myself and 14 members of my family decided to try out Norwegian for the first time. Unfortunately, it will be our last. We cruised on the Getaway, and boy do I wish we could have gotten away from it. ... Read more

I love to cruise, but have recently been widowed. I resent paying double for a cabin and discovered that N.C.L. sometimes does not charge double for solo travelers. My late wife and I were Diamond Plus members on Royal Caribbean with ... Read more

This cruise line was recommended by friends and they passed Deon's info to us and he walked us through the whole process. We loved the beverage packages, which were included, the soda package, and specialty dining. While the restaurants ... Read more
