As someone who has gone on multiple cruises on different cruise lines, I was excited about trying Norwegian for the first time and excited to go to Key West and Cozumel. I should have done more homework on the boat we would be on. ... Read more

Although the ship was clean, it was a disappointing trip. The food was dried out and tasteless. Several of the staff members were very rude. Lauro, my Room Stewart was great. Dr. Laura in the spa was also great. She was kind, professional, ... Read more

Gosh, where do we begin? This cruise was selected for friends and family, a party of 10 (5 cabins), as a post holiday season celebration. Many of us are seasoned travelers, including cruisers, and everyone one of us was extremely ... Read more

This boat is supposable getting renovated and it needs it. We were delayed due to fog for about 6 hours so we didn't get to go to key west. We went to Cozumel for 2 days on our 5 day cruise. They were tearing down the slide and shut ... Read more

Positive: Hospitality, Drink and Dining Room/Food Staff fabulous. Very hard working and friendly. Negative: 1. Chose a 5 Day Cruise out of Tampa Port. Unable to leave port at scheduled time due to fog (not Norwegian's fault---). ... Read more

PARKING - Parked off site with Parkologists (The Parking Doctors), which is located approx 1/3 mile from the ship. We arrived at 1:00pm or so at the parking lot and they advised that around 1-1:30pm is the best time to come to avoid ... Read more

The itinerary and timing of this cruise were ideal but I regretted booking it. there were up charges for everything; forty-five dollars for a six-pack of water in the cabin, menu items in the inclusive dinning rooms with additional charges ... 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

It seemed at every turn, this cruise was perfect. The staff- from the Hotel Director, Sean and his Assistant Errol, to our cabin steward, Christopher- were on top of everything. We had a Mini-Suite w/ Balcony- our room was always clean and ... Read more

This was definitely one of our best cruises ever. 11th overall and 3rd with NCL. Service was outstanding (with one exception). We had few issues with bar service in spite of the free drinking package. We loved the mojito bar, tequila ... Read more

This was our 31st cruise, fourth on NCL and was average at best. The craziest thing we have ever seen is the cabin setup. I'm sure you have seen this in other EPIC reviews but the bathroom is split up into three different areas. Food was ... Read more
