Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review by The guns

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Family Inside Stateroom

We went on a back to back cruise and this one was going to great places as well as across the Atlantic. Something we were looking forward to doing. Ship too large and it seemed like many of the staff were in training, especially in the dining areas.

The hours that were scheduled for areas like internet and toys were not only too short and not always convenient. Lines were always long. At times we stood in lineup to 45 minutes.

The theatre is wya too small for the size oh the ship. Many times they only had one showing of the entertainment and could not get in even with Sro. Syd norman’s Way too small and the same problem as with the theatre.

Not enough areas to play cards etc. especially when going on a cruise with many sea days. And then when using the area on the 15th floor during off hours were told to leave.

Officers did not get back to us with issues we had.

Problem with moving about due to no center elevators.

Miami was a bust. Not being able to stop at the azores was depressing. Something should have been done about this to compensate us.

Being a platinum member we did not expect this.

Cabin Review

Family Inside Stateroom

Booked the cruise over a year in advance and received a cabin with upper bunks. We had to crawl on the bed to get in bed or risk banging our heads. Not cool. For seniors.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


The castle should not even be listed. Very disappointing. Cathedral was great.

Beach too busy with 2 ships at port
