Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review by saabmedic
- Sail Date: March 2018
- Destination: Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom
Did not appreciate freestyle system, had to wait for table every time even with reservation. Tropicana was huge with a singer that could only be heard if you were seated near the stage, we weren't. Savor was nice and intimate but we missed the relationship you build with the same serving crew each night. Looked forward to O'Sheehans pub but no atmosphere, very limited menu and mediocre food at best. Then the noise from the atrium was overpowering and it was way too small for the many activities that were planned there. Other wise the atrium area was very nice. Dining room food was poor to good but even the best (prime rib) was no match for Celebrity. Buffet was well planned but blah food, cardboard pizza. Ice cream was excellent, had many soft serve cones; lime sherbert to die for! We only made it to one evening show, million dollar quartet which was excellent, a cruise highlight. We cruise the caribbean for the snorkling and scuba which was excellent at all ports.
On Celebrity we saw Captain Kate each day and she was there at disembarkation to thank everyone as they left. We never saw the captain of the Getaway. Too much extra cost dining and entertainment venues, OK for families with children and spare money, not for us. Back to Celebrity or maybe even Holland America!
