Did the same cruise in Oct. 2018 when Hurricane Michael messed with our stops. Got a great casino deal so we tried it again. We had a morning flight into FLL, shuttle took us to ship arrived about noon and literally walked right on. Great timing. We had bid on upgrade and received ocean view 48 hours prior to cruising for 75.00 pp. This room had plenty of space compared to IS cabins. It ...

The price seemed good and there were three places i had never visited before. The food was cold almost every meal, had to return it many times; same food in all free restaurants (savor/taste/tropicana every day - breakfast, lunch and dinner; in specialty restaurants being presented bills containing everyone meals, except what i had eaten but being asked to give gratuities on food that i did not ...

Grumpy service staff, depressed atmosphere

When I did my research, Norwegian Getaway seemed to meet our expectations: relaxed atmosphere, fun activities for kids. What a disappointment it turned out to be. Most of its service staff wore a sad face. They seemed to be busy and self absorbed. All they cared was to have their job done according to their time table. We were once all chased out of our room because the housekeeping guy wanted ...

Embarkation was very fast and disembarkation was even faster. Our room steward was Amazing. Getting the specialty dinner package was definitely worth the price. We had dinner at Cagney’s steakhouse and from start to finish it was a great experience. The cirque steam and dreams show was phenomenal. The shows were great. There was always something to do. The only part I wasn’t to fond of was the ...

My sister won a Casino on the Seas cruise, and she invited me to go with her. She let me choose the week. I flew to Fort Lauderdale and took an Uber to Miami. At embarkation we were supposed to go through the fast lane as Casino on the Seas travelers, but the employee right at the sign told us no. We were ushered to the regular line, but it wasn't that slow after all. All week if I needed ...

This was my third time sailing with Norwegian and second time in the Haven. As part of my fare, I had the Ultimate Dining Package as well as the Unlimited Beverage Package(UBP). 1) On the first night I had a reservation at Ocean Blue and upon checking in with the hostess she informed me of a $12.00 up-charge, but when I booked my trip I was never informed of any up-charges, I searched on-line ...

Being Platinum with NCL the last few years, we have looked first with them and secondly with Carnival. I got a great price on an inside cabin, which is all we normally go with anymore. Being retired, price is something we always look at first. The better the prices the more cruises we can take. The Getaway was the largest ship we have been on, which was somewhat of a concern. The boarding ...

This was a totally relaxing, wonderful cruise. I like sailing this first week in December, the price and quietness appeal to me. Embarkation was a breeze -- I arrived around 10:30, spent 5 minutes in the first Haven check-in, and about 10 minutes in the second area before being escorted up to the Haven. Lunch was available in the dining room there, or at Jimmy Buffets. My bags were brought ...

My family of 5 cruised for the first time on the Carnival Dream in Jan 2017 and loved it! We decided to try a different cruiseline and went with Norwegian who was offering free drink package, plus two kids free... what a deal! FOOD: First of all, the alcohol drinks were in small cups and very weak. I didn’t get buzzed once and I’m a lightweight. The bars and buffet were way over crowded. The ...
