We choose this cruise for the free dining package and their new island in Belize. Because we reserved an inside guaranteed room and did not read the small print we were not eligible for free anything. The next day when we realized what ... Read more

Second Norwegian cruise and we were not disappointed. Three of the four stops were places we had not been before and we enjoyed them all. Even Cozumel where we had been before was totally new thanks to an excursion expertly arranged by ... Read more

We chose this cruise line because we heard good things after reading reviews. We have sailed on 3 other cruises and loved them but decided to try a new line. We booked a mini-suite on the Getaway and the cruise went downhill from day ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to try Norwegian's Freestyle cruising and this ship and all it had to offer appealed to us. It was the right choice! We LOVED this ship, and Norwegian's Freestyle cruising! We loved it so much, we are ... Read more

NCL Getaway Embarkation First off we flew into Miami International the day before we set sail. Decided to do that so we wouldn’t be rushed for time getting from the airport to the cruise port terminal. We decided to choose our ... Read more

We were very 'price led' and as experienced cruisers opted for the offer including the drinks package and select dining (four nights inclusive), which many of you will know saves you a fortune if you drink anything, at all. Being from the ... Read more

This was my second cruise on the Getaway in as many years. The two cruises were taken almost a year apart exactly. I have a MUCH more comprehensive review of the ship in general from last January’s cruise, so if that is what you are ... Read more

This was a trip with my husband, daughter, son-in-law and his first time cruiser parents. Check-in was seamless. We all had balcony rooms. The cabin was nice but the smallest balcony I've ever been on. We had to face each other, not out ... Read more

Typical expectation from an NCL cruise. People were all friendly, service was great, food was great (!!), but a couple down sides to this mega-ship. First, too many decks. Stayed on 13th deck, so only 2 decks to the pool deck and ... Read more

Just came off the Getaway and I feel a bit indifferent about my trip. I'm not liking the extra small balconies but the ship was nice. I guess it's a way of getting more people on board. This cruise was really different from the others I've ... Read more

I'm an avid reviewer, beforehand and after. Fortunately, having a travel agent in the family, I ended up choosing Norwegian over Carnival. My wife and I have worked hard in our business and now have the luxury of being able to afford the ... Read more

Fantastic Family Getaway We were a party of 6: 4 adults and 2 children, aged 2 and 8, on the Western Caribbean Getaway cruise the first week in January. We shared 2 connecting mini- suites on Deck 12. All in all, we had a wonderful time ... Read more

I read all the reviews beforehand and I went looking to find something wrong and could not. I arrived at the Port at 11:50 am. I dropped my stuff off in my room at 1230. Embarkation for me was very efficient. Overall, the food ... Read more

This was my first NCL cruise and my last. Having about 100 cruise days on other lines, NCL left me less than impressed. I was traveling with extended family which are NCL cruisers, which had not been on Getaway before. They said this ... Read more

Being a mega ship, the Getaway has a multitude of activities and attractions to keep passengers busy, but you can never get away from the crowds. People had to essentially climb over each other to snag a deck chair or a table at the ... Read more

We went on this cruise to celebrate the 90th birthday of our friend. There were 18 in our group. Overall the ship was ok but we have been on cleaner ships. The public bathrooms could have been kept cleaner. If you wanted to get lounge ... Read more

We normally cruse with Princess or Royal Caribbean so my experience is relative to what I am accustomed to. We joined this cruise because we were joining a group trip and had no choice in the matter. Their group services organization was ... Read more

We planned to get to the ship earlier to avoid crowds, but due to delays with the airlines the night before our arrival was around noon. Despite this, our embarkation was smooth and the lines moved well, putting us on the ship in about 45 ... Read more

I chose this cruise to try out the studio cabin, and I liked the itinerary. The cruise took place over Christmas, and the ship tried to make it as festive as possible, but it still felt as though something was missing, and I did not feel ... Read more
