DO NOT EVER BOOK THROUGH EXPEDIA!!!!!!

The NCL free promotions for dining and beverages etc is a real differentiator. I have noticed that in the last few years the cruise lines are now up charging for everything and it is very annoying. I would rather ...

New Cruise at the Top of My List

Excellent Holiday

We were slightly apprehensive going on our first NCL cruise on a large ship like the Getaway given some of the negative reviews. However, we had a great time and can’t believe why some people are so critical. ...

Not as good as I remember

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 ...

Pretty much just frustrating

The Getaway is a fantastic ship for 2300 people. The problem is they put 4000 on it... In no particular order: The HVAC system onboard seemed overwhelmed in the common areas and in the cabins it seemed they ...
