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

I noticed this short cruise offered not long ago, and jumped at the chance to check out a newer NCL ship. My husband didn't want to go, and my kids just started school, so I called a girlfriend and off we went. Getting there turned out ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the NCL reputation and the ports and scheduling. We had been on the Sky last year and while we did not have a great experience were encouraged to try a larger and newer ship. In many ways we were quite ... Read more

Getting on and off the ship was excellent. The free style dining was great. Food overall was excellent. The 24/7 Irish Pub was a great bonus, buffett food was above average, and specialty restaurants were amazing. The lines in the ... Read more

I chose the Getaway to try out a big newer ship. I am usually a loyal Royal Caribbean customer but I did not like the ports or the time in ports on the bigger newer RC ships. This cruise had two days at sea and one day at each, Roatan, ... Read more

Good cruise. Very small balcony - but good enough. Very narrow hallways - but good enough. Food was great. Second night at sea was seafood at the buffet - don't miss it, the shrimp was great and plentiful. The Tropicana dining room ... Read more

We had a large group of 11 people cruising so that could have impacted our experience, but some things just weren't up to par even if you were cruising with a smaller family. Embarkation in Miami was fine. It seemed well organized, but ... Read more
