  3. Norwegian Getaway
Cruise was chosen for the Itiniary. The ship was a disappointment. Nowhere to go for a quiet space. Lacking inside observation area. Noise everywhere, The open area from the atrium up to OSheehans, so noisy you could hardly have a conversation. Lines, lines, lines everywhere. Food was fair, nothing to rave about. The specialty restaurants, Cagney’s and Italan I rate as ok, nothing special. Memorable parts were Weymouth, Consail and Paris. Missed Azores due to high winds . The first few days for breakfast was lacking. We were told they were training new staff. Did not go off the ship at the private island. The tenders were numerous and took forever to transport all the passengers to the island. It took several hours for the last ones to go. So many people sick, coughing and sneezing. I have come to realize that these mega ships are not for me. Sorry to not have more positive things to report. Although my cabin Steward was super, as was most of the wait staff.
