  3. Norwegian Getaway
We had cruised the Getaway in 2015. the ship was new and was spotless as you would expect. The ship in 2019 is as spotless as it was 4 years ago. From the initial embarkment everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. getting on and off any ship is perhaps the only stress on a cruise, but the NCL staff made it very easy. I have been on many cruises and this was perhaps the quickest on/off i have ever encountered. The food was awesome. Cruise food always varies from cruise line to cruise line, but even from ship to ship.The go to buffet was great, the complimentary dinning was excellent and the fine dining was amazing. Cagney's is a must do and the Teppanyaki was incredible. The Teppanyaki was not just a meal but an experience. the Chef made it an event. The Getaway is a large ship, but unlike most large ships it does not try to do too much with too little space. The ship is very open and friendly. Lot's to do. Pool is little small and i would like to have seen more live entertainment on the pool deck, however, it was fun place to be. We found service on board to be superb. The bartenders were very busy, but there was very little wait. Overall, the trip was fantastic!

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BC 11284
Very comfortable. A little small, but you are really never in the cabin but to sleep. Plenty of storage (even for the the wife who brings 10 pairs of shoes). i was not crazy about the temperature control of the hot/cold water, but this was minor. Our cabin guy was awesome. We rarely saw him, yet the room always was clean and well stocked. he did a fabulous job.
