Getaway is equipped with 2,014 cabins. Of those, 42 are within Norwegian's signature all-suite complex, The Haven. Notable cabin categories include 59 Studio cabins for solo cruisers and 42 wheelchair-accessible cabins.

The cabin decor is clean and modern, with echoes of art deco in suites (reminiscent of Miami's most famous oceanside hotels). The color palette is awash with jewel tones: ocean blue for oceanviews, pops of turquoise in balcony cabins and purple in mini-suites. Cheerful orange accents brighten up insides. Glossy dark-wood closets, tan carpeting and light walls are featured in most cabins, and color-saturated panoramic photos of nature liven up neutral colors.

Two twin beds can be converted into a queen-sized bed in any cabin in any category. Each cabin is equipped with a hair dryer, safe, flat-screen TV, writing desk with four outlets (two U.S. standard and two European) and minibar. Closets and shelving around the room provide plentiful storage. All cabins are designed to be energy efficient, utilizing keycard access to control the lighting. Of note: Electronics will not charge unless a keycard is in use to activate the outlet; any type of card -- even those without magnetic strips -- can be used to activate the lights and electrical outlets.

All cabin bathrooms feature sinks with tile backsplashes and storage underneath, toilets and showers with glass doors. Shower dispensers have shampoo and body wash. Elemis bath products are available in The Haven and Spa cabins.

There are 449 inside cabins on Getaway at 135 to 201 square feet each. Many inside cabins are connecting and sleep up to four with the help of pull-down bunks. For families, inside cabins are available near children's facilities.

At 99 square feet, Studios are specifically designed to accommodate solo travelers. Most of the 59 Studios connect, and these rooms have private keycard access to the Studio complex and exclusive two-story Studio Lounge (with a bar). Rooms feature full-sized beds and have windows to the corridor so you can check out what's happening on the other side.

Outside, or oceanview, cabins come with large windows and 161 to 218 square feet of space. About 44 of the 162 cabins in this category are Family Oceanviews that sleep five people.

Getaway's 962 balcony cabins are 207 to 550 square feet and feature sofa beds with large drawers under for extra storage. In the bathrooms, showers offer shaving bars for women. On each balcony, you'll find two blue mesh chairs and a small metal table. We measured an aft-facing balcony to be about 99 square feet. Midship balcony cabins, on Deck 13, offer balconies that are about 24 square feet.

The 246 mini-suites are essentially a slightly roomier version of a balcony cabin, with better bathrooms. Large double sinks are set against mosaic glass tile backsplashes. Multiple body spray jets, along with handheld showerheads, are also included in the oversized showers. (Note: Be careful with the body jets. They're powerful and can hit you where it hurts, depending on your height.) A king-sized bed that can be separated into two singles, a sofa bed with additional storage, full-sized closet with sliding doors and the bathroom compose the 239 to 585 square feet of each room. Balcony furniture features the same two blue mesh chairs and small metal table. The verandah of a Mini Suite with Large Balcony on Deck 8 measured about 96 square feet. On Decks 12 and 13, specialized Family Mini Suites are located near children's facilities, and many feature bathtubs. Balconies in these cabins measure about 30 square feet.

For those looking to bliss out, Getaway has 36 Spa Balconies, 20 Spa Mini Suites and 16 Haven Spa Suites, all located on Deck 14, adjacent to the spa and fitness center. Passengers sailing in all spa categories get complimentary access to the Thermal Spa Suite and plush bathrobes and slippers for use onboard. At 207 and 239 square feet, respectively, Spa Balconies and Mini Suites are laid out like standard cabins but feature tranquil, nature-inspired spa decor. Haven Spa Suites upgrade to 309 square feet of space, a king-sized bed, dining area, hardwood floors and in-suite whirlpool. Each suite bathroom features an oversized shower with a waterfall showerhead and multiple body spray jets, along with a separate handheld shower head and two vanity sinks. Spa suite passengers have access to all the Haven facilities and amenities. A balcony in a Haven Spa Suite measures roughly 39 square feet.

There are 22 Penthouses outside of The Haven (Forward/Aft-Facing Penthouses) that also maintain access to all the amenities of The Haven. Enjoy more space with 419- to 824-square-foot accommodations, which each include a dining room and living area that features a double sofa bed. Each bathroom has two double bowl sinks, a curved oval bathtub (most with lovely ocean views) and separate shower. Elemis bath products and an enhanced vanity, including an illuminated magnifying mirror and cotton swabs, are offered at this level and above. A balcony in a forward-facing cabin on Deck 11 is small at around 30 square feet. The wraparound balcony for an aft-facing penthouse on Deck 13 measured 7 feet wide from the handrail to the sliding glass door and 30 feet in length along the railing.

There are 42 Suites and Villas inside The Haven on Decks 15 and 16. The Haven includes a private restaurant, a cocktail bar and a concierge desk. Exclusive benefits also include a private concierge and 24-hour butler; priority embarkation and disembarkation; priority boarding of tenders to shore; in-suite espresso/cappuccino machines; gourmet treats delivered each evening; Bliss Collection by Norwegian pillow-top mattress; fine linens, feather duvet and pillow menu; and plush bathrobes, slippers and oversized towels.

At the heart of The Haven is a two-story courtyard area that features a pool, two whirlpools and a private sun deck, along with two private massage rooms, changing areas and a sauna. Haven passengers also have direct and private access to the ship's spa and fitness center.

Cabins in The Haven fall into four categories. There are 18 Courtyard Penthouses, from 328 to 349 square feet, including king-sized beds, living and dining rooms and single sofa beds. The walk-in closets are humongous. Each balcony features two camel-colored wicker chairs with tan cushions and a small, circular wicker table. Balconies in these penthouses (on Deck 16) are about 48 square feet.

The 20 two-Bedroom Family Villas each feature two bedrooms and two bathrooms with separate living room and dining area, single sofa bed and bar. These cabins can sleep five or six. The master bedroom contains a king-sized bed, floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony. The master bath features a shower, an oversized oval tub with sea views and two vanity sinks. The second bedroom includes either a single or double sofa bed, a Pullman bed and bathroom. These villas run 543 to 545 square feet. A balcony in a Deck 15 Family Villa cabin is about 40 square feet.

The two Owner's Suites, on Deck 16, are sizeable at 572 square feet each. Each suite includes a living room, dining area and vanity. In the bedroom, there is a king-sized bed that faces floor-to-ceiling windows, a large walk-in closet area and a large balcony. Each master bathroom features a large bathtub, luxurious cocoa-colored vanity sinks and a shower. The Owner's Suites can be joined to the Deluxe Owner's Suites creating one grand suite that can sleep eight people.

The two Deluxe Owner's Suites are the largest suites within The Haven, at 932 square feet each. They also feature a living room, dining area and vanity, but they also include a wet bar for entertaining. The wraparound private balcony is a highlight, measuring about 50 feet around and 6 feet across.

There are 42 wheelchair-accessible cabins onboard, including one suite, four mini-suites, 13 balconies, nine outsides (including four Family Oceanviews) and 14 insides. The balcony in an Accessible Balcony cabin on Deck 11 is about 16.5 feet across but only 3 feet wide. The room and bathroom offer plenty of space, but without push-button access; we found the balcony door could be difficult to open from a wheelchair. All cabins feature collapsible shower benches mounted on shower walls, toilets with collapsible arm guards and lowered ADA-height wash basins. Amenities for the deaf include vibrating alarm clocks, door beacon (light flashes when someone knocks on the door), television with closed caption decoders and a flashing light fire alarm. Each cabin has permanently lit emergency lights in the living area and bathroom. Braille text is available in all cabins and elevators. Hearing-impaired kits are available by request.

The cabin had plenty of storage. My daughter likes it fridged and sometimes the air conditioner did not keep up with the ice woman. Other than that, we loved our balcony and the cabin steward was very accommodating.

I liked my balcony cabin but they wanted to paint my balcony. But I told them that I was allergic to the fumes from the paint. So they stopped it.

Very close to front elevators, but very quiet. Small balcony. Would choose it again though minisuite probably isn't worth a premium over a balcony cabin for solo travelers like me.
