  3. Norwegian Getaway
We selected this cruise because it was at our anniversary time and we always wanted to go to the Caribbean! We love cruising with Norwegian so this was a no brainier for us! We loved all the ports we stopped at - Costa Maya, Mexico, Harvest Caye, Belize, Roatan, Honduras, and Cozumel, Mexico! We had a balcony stateroom so we were able to sit on the balcony and watch the sunset in the evenings and just relax. I was able to have my coffee on the balcony in the mornings and enjoy the quiet before the day began!! Very relaxing. We ate at 5 of the specialty restaurants and loved them all.. The shows were fantastic - especially the "Million Dollar Quartet".. fantastic!! The crew treated us wonderfully and even decorated our stateroom to help celebrate our anniversary!! Our favorite excursions were the Spice Farm in Belize - being able to see how they grow the spices we use everyday was super cool, and the Amazing Secret River in Cozemel - that was the BEST excursion ever!!! They took us underground into caverns for an hour and a half and we were in the purest water.. it was a river we waded thru in caverns that were untouched by technology and people.. it was breathtaking!!!! I loved this cruise and can't wait for the next one in June 2019!!

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BC
Our stateroom was perfect size for two of us. The balcony was a bit small but worked. It had 2 chairs and a small table on it so we were able to sit comfortably and watch the sunrise or sunset and relax. We had a King bed so that was very nice!!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Chacchoben Mayan Ruins
    We selected the deluxe tour so our group was only 10 people. It was very nice to have a guide that was so knowledgeable and our group was small enough to enable questions and answers. We could hear clearly and had lots of time to climb the ruins and see what we wanted to. We were able to get there before the big groups so we were not hindered by the amount of others that were there. I would highly recommend the tour, and especially the deluxe version.. Well worth the money!!!

  • Amazing River & Cavern Explore
    We went to the Amazing Secret River tour. That was the highlight of the entire cruise!! They gave you a wet suit and took you underground into the caverns and the water below. We waded and swam thru the caverns for an hour and a half. It was amazing as the name states!! To see the caverns untouched by technology and man was fantastic. The water was so pure you could see thru it and to see no pollution or trash or anything but pure water and nature was so awesome.. Our guide was wonderful and we had some amazing pictures taken. I would go back again and again!!!!

  • Harvest Caye
    We went to the Spice Farm on the mainland. It was a wonderful excursion. It gave us the ability to see how spices are grown and harvested. Very educational!! We were able to purchase some spices grown there and that was fantastic!! I loved this excursion and would definitely recommend it to anyone who has the ability to go...

  • Gumbalina Park
    The park was an amazing experience. Being able to have the monkeys jump right up on you and sit with you, the mackays sit on your shoulders, and see the iguanas up close was an experience like no other. I wish there were other animals to see other than those 3 mainly, but it was worth it to see those. We did not stay to hang around on the beach or have lunch there so I can't say how those things are. We were anxious to return to the port to shop.
