The Getaway is a beautiful ship, a bit short on pool space but lots of alternate options. A young Cruise Director and a Miami culture theme give a lot of energy to the atmosphere of the ship. "Legally Blonde" was a light fun show. The ... Read more

Warning this is long but very complete/detailed. This was our second POA cruise in Hawaii, the last in 2010. The difference between the two cruises is substantial and that is what I want to concentrate on as well as provide some tips on ... Read more

Decided to initiate the in-laws with a "gentle" cruise out of los angeles with a shorter flight from the west coast. The boat holds about 2300 people, not good area to corral the children so they are all over, in the main pool, on the ... Read more

Poor yourself a cup of tea and sit back while you listen to me. We traveled on the NCL Sun from Tampa to the Western Caribbean. Embarkment was not well organized but we were more than willing to overlook that to begin.The Sun's attention ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise on this line. We travel with 7 people and have 3 cabins. We always do 2 balcony cabins and one inside. This boat is old and the décor is cheesy. I think it goes to Hawaii a lot - but we were in ... Read more

Hawaii is to die for and don't let anyone tell you anything different! It was our first time. Although Honolulu was not the greatest, the Polynesian Cultural Center was terrific. The re-enactors were outstanding, food was great, and price ... Read more

This trip has been a dream of mine for many years, and it didn't disappoint. My husband and I have cruised only with Royal Caribbean and Holland America so we were looking at what was different with a critical eye. We were traveling with ... Read more

We were really excited about visiting Alaska and wanted to try sailing NCL for the first time. The first day it was ok, visiting the ports and their options for excursions were good. I do recommend Yukon Territory drive and visiting ... Read more

If you like food, even a little bit, I advise against travelling on the Norwegian Jewel (and by extension, the entire Norewegian line). The food is terrible (buffet and complimentary restaurants). Many people are happy with the food. Good ... Read more

3 Night cruise from MIA to the bahamas on Norwegian Sky. More tattoos than teeth. Easy to get a room on deck 10, right under the pool. I found out why. Pool area turns in to a Latin disco from about noon - midnight. The booming subwoofer ... Read more

Just returned from a fabulous week on the Getaway. We usually cruise on Oceania, Crystal, Regent and Silverseas. I can say that being in the Haven is as good as those as far as service and Comfort. At the pool area we never had more than ... Read more

This was our first NCL cruise. Embarkation was very smooth. However we were told our luggage would be delivered to our stateroom within 2 hours. Four hours later we were still waiting for it. When I called , the customer service rep said ... Read more

I need to qualify my review so that similar type of cruisers benefit and those that could be put off without need will not be. Hope that makes sense. In the last year I've ridden twice on the QM2 in the grills, enjoying both an eastbound ... Read more
