Not as good as I remember

Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review by Cruising Oma53

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2020
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom

Embarkation in NOLA was fast. I estimate that we were onboard within 15 minutes from the time we got in line. They said our room would be ready around 1:30 pm and it was.

The Free Dining rooms food was not as good as it was 3 years ago on NCL Jewel or last year on the Dawn. Twice we looked at the MDR menu and decided to just eat at the buffet.

Great shows in the Getaway Theater, especially Million Dollar Quartet. I did not see the comedians since it was always in one of there smaller venues and we would arrive too late for a seat and did not want to stand for 45 minutes. Some game shows were in the Atrium which you could be heard while talking to a Guest Service person and on the next deck above.

Ports were ok. Staff was ok. I heard some people were left behind at Costa Maya because they did not make the 1:30 pm onboard return time.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom

Our balcony room was great. The shower had a door vs a curtain and seemed roomier. Most days I had to wipe down the chairs and table on the balcony from the grainy salt. NCL hoses down the balcony every day while in port, they even have notices to not leave anything out there because of it. Disembarkation was fast.
