  3. Norwegian Getaway
First of all we choose a cruise to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. But the destinations on this cruise's itinerary were once in a life time for us. We loved each and every port. The differences in these ancient cities were not always apparent, but fun to discover. And each one in its own way could draws us back for a closer look. We found the ship amazing. This was our first ever cruise and with advice of family and travel professionals we were assured that Norwegian would not let us down. The entertainment venues were excellent. The number of available places to dine or drink made it easy to feel like we were not on a ship with 4000+ other cruisers. There was always a quiet place to have a drink or just to relax. Each and every crew member except one treated us like family, usually calling us by our first name on a second encounter. The one exception was a service desk staff member that did not completely detail our disembarkation procedure after purchasing Norwegian supplied airport transfer. No real harm was done by this as we were quickly brought up to speed on that morning by others.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BA 14828
Our cabin was more than adequate for our needs. The closet was able to hold all of our travel attire. The bathroom was perfect for us with a large shower and plenty of shelf space. Being just one floor below the Garden Buffet I was worried that we might hear the passenger traffic from above. But the room was silent. The balcony had plenty of room for two to sit comfortably and offered a great vantage point to watch the ship arrive and depart ports.
