We cruised from New York to the Caribbean (Puerto Rico, St Thomas, St Martin and Tortola) on the 11th April 2016 (10 days) Our first thoughts were that we might get caught up in the New York School Easter Holiday period and have too ... Read more

This is my very first cruise critic review so please bear with me here! I'm usually not one to write long and extensive reviews about my cruises, but this one was so eventful (and not in a good way) that I felt obligated to share my ... Read more

Overall, our 1st bi-annual multi-generational family cruise was a really awesome trip. Here's my review-in the simplest possible frame of mind: 1) the cabins-midship, 10th floor, 2 inside & 1 balcony staterooms-all BIG for a ... Read more

We planned our trip in the middle of October 2015. Since then I read reviews weekly and was a bit nervous, but honestly, if you are like me and read review after review, please remember that what some people complain about may not mean ... Read more

This was a rebooked cruise as we had to cancel our last cruise due to an accident. I can honestly say that is worth the wait. The ship is big, very big. However, I never felt that I could not get away and find somewhere quiet, even ... Read more

We stayed three days (4 nights) in Barcelona prior to starting our cruise and really loved the experience. It meant we had chance to see something of a fantastic city before boarding the ship and had no pressures or worries about getting ... Read more

Although the ship was a little outdated (but it going through a dry-dock in May 2016), this cruise was by far one of the best cruises I have been on and this was my 6th (3 on Carnival, 2 on Norwegian, 1 on Royal Caribbean). Really ... Read more

Honestly this was the best vacation I have ever taken! The ship in general had a great layout and had A LOT of things to do! There were a lot of teens and I was able to make friends very easily. But if you aren't a teen/don't want to be on ... Read more

So like most of you I read a lot of reviews for the Getaway claiming poor, inattentive service, and at this point I am convinced 90% of those are competing cruise lines trying to sandbag. I am a very picky traveler and have little patience ... Read more

Really enjoyed this cruise other than the weather but this is not the fault of Norwegian Cruise Lines Despite previous reviews, the longest we had to wait for a table to eat in any of the restaurants (having being supplied with a pager) ... Read more

This was our 16th cruise but first on Norwegian. I was not impressed and wouldn't sail with them again. We found the bar staff to be very rude, our room was never cleaned the first day morning or evening. Found a a dirty stained towel ... Read more

My husband and I are frequent cruisers, and our first cruise experiences were with NCL. We always had a great time, but felt as though they liked to "nickel and dime" passengers a bit too much with promotions. Nevertheless, we ... Read more

Where do I start? Wonderful cruise with good amount of activities and good dining options. Bartenders pour generously and everyone greets you with a warm smile. Shows are not to be missed, especially the comedian/magician Jean Pierre and ... Read more

We have done over a dozen cruises and loved this one so much we booked another cruise on the Breakaway even before we got back home. Check-in: Took about an hour which is very realistic for a ship with so many people on it. Getting to ... Read more
