NOWEGIAN GETAWAY - ON THE LEARNING CURVE
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
NCL is still trying to get things figured out on Getaway regarding the food service @ "freestyle dining". We (a group of 28) sailed on 22 Feb '14, the 4th cruise from Miami. We had "pre-arranged" reservations @ the Taste restaurant for the week, with the proviso that we tell them the day before if someone was not going to make it. So far, so good. The mistake was the size of the group (should have realized that before). The food is held somewhere until all meals are ready to be served (Very BIG mistake). Whoever is served last gets warm food at best. No upcharge, but make your group no more than table for 6 - 8.
We ate @ the Garden Cafe (buffet) on deck 15 for the rest of the cruise (Very good HOT food)! O'Sheehan's also excellent.
A BIG disappointment was Ocean Blue. For $49 upcharge p/p expected exclusivity and More ambiance, a more classy setting, and primo food & service. Unfortunately, all were very ordinary. Less
