Great Getaway

Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review by MIA2015

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2015
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom

We recently returned from a week on the Getaway and could not have been happier. A swift check in process started things off right. Arrived around 12pm and got right on. Once on board all the crew members where welcoming and excited. From the moment you walk on the energy is great. Lots of upbeat music that really got us in the vacation spirit.

Our room steward always made our inside stateroom look excellent each and everyday and would always go out of her way to greet us every time she could. For a inside stateroom the design is great and the small space feels large with some nice finishes.

We only ate at the complimentary venues and really enjoyed the food. The menus are well rounded and really offer something for everyone. Taste and Savor create a great intimate atmosphere that makes you forget you are sharing the ship with 4,000 other guests. Overall service was quick and all of our wait staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was excellent.

With three sea days you never feel bored with so many activities to choose from. Our personal favorite is the ropes course where you can walk a plank extending past the end of the ship. The pool area is always a lot of fun and we really loved the DJ who kept the energy up all day. Most importantly with a very full sailing there was never an issue finding deck chairs.

Up until this cruise we had usually chosen to sail on Royal Caribbean but after our sailing on the Getaway we are already looking for our next NCL cruise. Highly recommend trying NCL if you never have before. we were pleasantly surprised.

Cabin Review

Inside Stateroom
Cabin ID 12437

Great cabin with lots of space to move around. New finishes make it seem more organized. The bathroom was the largest we have ever had on a cruise.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Blue Lagoon Island Beach

Would recommend this excursion to anyone. As you ride over to the private island the crew gives you a brief history of the island. Once you arrive the island is beautiful and well maintained. Our favorite part of watching the dolphins and sea lions play.
