Some on-point sea day lunch grub from American Diner on the Getaway.
Haven Getaway Restaurant surf and turf. A common refrain from the waitstaff was "how many lobster tails would you like?"

"No matter what they say, not enforcing mask rules once aboard the ship is getting people sick!By the seventh day people were coughing and sneezing all over the ship...."Read More

Disappointing

Review for Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I've only cruised on Norwegian Cruise Line and this was my 17th cruise (Sapphire level) with NCL and the forth time on this ship and I have to say I was so very disappointed in the product, entertainment, and drink package. I understand NCL may be trying to recover from loss revenue from the pandemic but it's being passed onto the guests. The quality of food has gone way down. Cagney's used to be ...

We are experienced cruisers with 16 cruisers under our belt. We aren't really loyal to any brand and have done Royal Caribbean, Carnival and NCL cruises over the last 29 years. We are a couple in our 50's and we like to be entertained, good food and nice ports. Pre-Cruise - We flew from BWI to Orlando on Avelo Airlines. (Avelo Airlines was a huge mistake, all kinds of issues including being ...

Not great

It saddens me to write this review because I think I’m done with cruising after this experience. I should have known something was off when weeks before we cruised we were never able to speak with a real customer service rep at NCL. Husband and I are experienced cruisers. Embarkation was a train wreck — hours long waiting in line in the Florida heat. We kept having to show the same documents to ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

My husband and friends decided to go on a couples cruise. The cruise embarked from Port Canaveral, FL on June 27, 2022. My cruise package included the premium food and drink package for both myself and my husband. Right after boarding the ship we decided to go for a drink. At the first bar we visited, the bartender charged me $12 for my drink stating we did not have the drink package on our ...

The 14/06/22 departure was not a Baltic cruise but a 13 nights repositioning cruise from Copenhagen to Port Canaveral. On arrival at Copenhagen Airport I was surprised by the very well organised Norwegian meet and greet. It took about one hour before they started transportation to the ship. Some people got nervous, expected huge lines at check in, and preferred to take a taxi. There was no ...

Cruise was picked by a family member. The itinerary looked and was, good. Boarding in Manhattan, with ports in Canada, N. Ireland, Ireland, Wales, U.K. and France. Problems, however, started before even boarding the ship. With a boarding window around 10:30 a.m., arrived on time, and was told that special paperwork had to be filled out because of the Canadian port and that there was a cost of ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Everything you are reading in the reviews is the truth. Long wait lines, 4.5 hours of standing for myself and family with no explanations at all. Planned departure was April 19 at 4 pm. Actual departure after midnight. No drinking water available unless you purchased a case or two. Bypassed the first port of call with little to no explanation. Passengers being nickeled and dimes for every little ...

Note to Readers: This is a really long review of my husband and I’s first cruise. We traveled on the Norwegian Getaway from Manhattan to Bermuda from April 17th to April 24th, 2022. I decided to write as inclusive a review as I could to pay it forward to future readers. Prior to this cruise I devoured all the reviews, NCL forums, Facebook groups, and YouTube videos I could. This is my small way to ...

This was the worst cruise EVER. The only good thing was we had an awesome Cabin Steward. We waited on line 4 hours to get on board the ship. Norwegian did not accept our negative Covid test results even though I called NCL to make sure the date would be acceptable for a Sunday departure. We had to pay an additional $150 and get tested there at the pier. We paid an additional $40 for a ...

I almost kissed the filthy NYC ground upon my return just because I was grateful to be off that boat.

NEVER AGAIN TL;DR understaffed, overbooked, disorganized, rude, horrendous service, erroneous charges This was my first cruise. My mother bought it as a gift for my sister's 50th birthday, which was in 2020. Obviously we couldn't go then, so we decided to do it now. First problem was the Bermuda Travel authority which needed to approve your application before you could board the ship. Clearly ...
