  3. Norwegian Getaway
We choose this cruise because we had not been to most of the stops nor traveled with Norwegian and wanted to give it a try. Aside from the embarkation which was a NIGHTMARE because we waited in lines for over 3 hours with absolutely no communication from anyone regarding what was going on! People were lined up on the street for what seemed like miles. We heard rumor the ship was 3 hours late getting into port from the previous cruise but no idea if that was true. We finally set sail at 7PM rather than 4PM. Entertainment was amazing...an 80’s throwback band; Back In The Day was awesome...we saw them 6 times! The house band at Syd Norman’s was also great! Steven, Alli, and Emma are wonderful singers. The dueling pianos and comedy shows where also great. Really enjoy the Cirque du soleil show and meal but think it should have been included rather than pay an additional fee. The Million Dollar Quartet show was great as well which was included. Overall it was a wonderful trip, just need better communication regarding delays. We ate in the Taste and Savor restaurants most nights and had a delightful server named Muyuk (not spelt right) from India...hands down best ever on any vacation and deserves to be recognized as some other servers were not good at all! We had the drink package which was worth it even if you are not big drinkers but know bottled water is not included in this package which is insane to me! Drinks were good and lots of variety and decent amount of alcohol in them.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window
Cabin OB
Cabin was comfortable, clean, and had just what we needed with the exception of additional outlets. There is only 2 which on on the vanity in the room and none in the bathroom or by the bed.
