Chose due to itinerary and length of trip. Ship is pretty outdated and has lots of creaks and banging noises when moving. Bed was hard as a rock, lumpy and tilted toward the head, pillows are no better. Bathroom was TINY. Shower about ... Read more

Embarkation was quick. We arrived at the port a little after noon, and were on the ship before 12:30. We immediately went to Crossings Main Dining Room and had a great first meal. Our room was ready right on time, and was clean and ... Read more

We took the seven day Western Caribbean cruise on the Getaway. My husband and two teenagers had never been on a cruise, primarily because cruising was never high on the list for our active family when it came to vacations. We took my Mom ... Read more

On our second time on the Getaway, the first was in a Haven Penthouse suite in 2015. Would a regular stateroom outside of the Haven measure up? It did, as the service we received was just as good. Although it had fewer bells and whistles, ... Read more

We have cruised in the past with Carnival, Princess, Celebrity, and Oceania. Due to a last minute cancellation of a previously booked cruise, we opted to switch lines and give Norwegian a try. The phone reservation with Norwegian was ... Read more

Itinerary: been there, done that; but we booked it intentionally to enjoy different areas of the ports we had already visited: -Roatan Bay: we took a boat out to snorkel Blue Channel; amazing sea life; saw a multitude of fish and ... Read more

My wife and I booked a 7 day cruise on the Norwegian Getaway with 2 of our kids. The price seemed good for two cabins (one with a balcony) drink packages for all, and 3 specialty meals. Pro: Emarkation was a breeze. Ship was new and ... Read more

We had high hopes for this cruise based upon recommendations from friends, but our experience was far from the excellent service we have received on other cruise lines. The ship is beautiful with a ton of things to do and see. The problem ... Read more

I was excited to sail on this ship. We have been trying out different cruise lines because as a mom of 3 I feel cruising is a great way to travel without having to worry about what's for dinner or activities planned. We plan to choose a ... Read more

We got to the Miami Port at about 9-9:15 am and someone quickly took our bags for us. We were in through security quickly and waited for our group to be called to board the ship (I think we were group 5). There was juice and coffee in the ... Read more

Great ship for a family cruise, but not so much for adults not traveling with kids. If you want to dance at night--forget it. Atrium is tiny and EXTREMELY crowded. Spice H2O is outside, so the 1 or 2 nights activities are scheduled ... Read more

The cruise was myself, my husband, and 2 young kids. We selected this cruise since the boat looked like it had a lot for kids to do. Ship Activities - The ropes course was fantastic. We also enjoyed the mini golfing, the arcade, and ... Read more

This cruise was a last-minute decision for a quick Spring Break getaway. A friend took care of the details for me and my daughter so I didn't really pay attention to what I was getting into. We joked about the open bar being included and I ... Read more

Choosing a cruise is difficult. Everyone has different wants and needs. Food, entertainment, ports, service, it goes on forever. The "open bar" was the main reason we choose the Sky. We were pleasantly surprised with the Sky ... Read more

Panama Canal,Columbia sounded interesting. After booking and paying for the cruise,we received noticed that there would be an additional service charge of $15/person/day at checkout. Seems dishonest. Cruise went well. How can you change ... Read more

Reservations: Overall the cruise was ok. We'd originally planned to do a transatlantic cruise, but it had sold-out, so this was the only cruise that fitted around the dates. We had been on the Pearl before, so knew more or less what to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we love sailing on Norwegian and had never seen the canal. Our room had an excellent view of the locks and entering Gatun Lake was the highlight of our cruise. Getting on and off the ship went extremely well; ... Read more

We selected this NCL cruise because we wanted to take our family on a fun spring trip and we had a great NCL cruise experience on the NCL Dawn a couple of years ago. We booked a suite on this cruise because we had a great suite experience ... Read more

This ship was too crowded. I was on the Getaway. One tiny pool and limited loungers. We had a group of 11 and could not get diner reservations. Limited shows and activities. Areas for kids were pitiful as well. There was not a comfortable ... Read more

NCL is the cruise line of choice for our family and Miami has been the favored embarkation or departure city. We prefer to fly into Ft. Lauderdale (FLA) and stay there as well. KSA Tours is the shuttle service of choice for their ... Read more
