I have sailed on 14 previous cruises. I understand that things have changed, but what I experienced was nuts. I am also the kind of traveler that goes with the flow. I know things aren't always perfect. But starting with boarding things ... Read more

We choose the Getaway based on rave reviews from my sister and her family's 5 recent NCL mega-ship cruise experiences (none were Western). We picked this route based solely on dates that worked for a tight summer schedule for our teen ... Read more

I was super excited about this cruise since I hadn't been on one in years. The embarkation was orderly and went smoothly . We did have to wait several hours for our room to be ready but that may have been my fault for boarding too early. ... Read more

We just went out for a week in the Norwegian getaway for a week . The cruise is beautiful, and the service overall is very good. The music in this ship is way better than carnival which I think is horrible. They play a good variety of ... 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
