This was our 11th cruise, our 2nd on Norwegian Getaway. This is a nice ship. As I read some of the other reviews, I believe that people are expecting more from a cruise than what is provided. If they would read the "what to expect ... Read more

The ship: The ship was impressive, pretty good slides for kids, rock climbing, some sort of zip line contraption which I didn't know what it was until the last day, would have liked to try it. One complaint was the lack of elevators, ... Read more

We were on the February 28th Western cruise on the Getaway last month. It was our 21st cruise and 3rd NCL cruise. So as I mentioned, this was our 3rd cruise on NCL. Generally we've been happy with how NCL does its thing and so we were ... Read more
