Perfect Paradise!: Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review by CampClark

Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The only suggestion I have is to avoid the Atlantis Half-Day Excursion in the Bahamas. Save your money; it's not worth the large More investment for the limited time you get there. It is a 6 hour excursion but you truly only get about 4 hours in Atlantis which is not enough time, especially when it was as crowded as it was when we were there over Spring Break 2014 (5 other cruise ships were at port at the same time). If you really want to see it, buy the passes directly and get a taxi right when you get off the ship to avoid the time-consuming bus rides and walking tour by the Atlantis reps. If you get there at noon or after, good luck trying to find a lawn chair and hopefully the lines won't be "1-hr waits" to get on the slides. The raging river was super fun and cool and so was the aquatic life on the grounds (rays, sharks, colorful fish).
Love the evening dance parties on the back Spice H20 deck everynight. Also loved the nighly shows. Burn the Floor was outstanding. Take advantage of the dance lessons their dancers offer and the Tropicana Supper Club when they perform. They are amaingly talented dance professionals that will WOW you. Legally Blonde and Illusionarium were impressive as well as were the Stand-Up Comedians and Dueling Pianos. Our kids loved the ropes course, basketball court, mini golf, climging wall, bungee jumping, bowling and zip line. We all "walked the plank" 18 stories above the ocean. Breathtaking!
Love being "Norwegians" and can't wait to go again! Less
Cabin review: 11786 and 11788
Beautiful Cabins! Loved all the extra space for unpacking. Beds were super comfy (including the couch that made into a bed). Bathrooms were LARGE with a very cool shower with dual heads and lots of pressure. Our room steward, Morgan, was outstanding. He knew our triplets loved his towel art and he did a superb job of making something new and fun every day. His hospitality was top-notch and we all loved him!
Group trip on Allure
Great Cruise for the Money
