Welcome to 1992

What a piece of junk! Needs refurbished, or at least fixed. I never thought it possible for a cruise ships food to be so terrible. The biscuits resembled hardtack not actual biscuits. The crew is either complete ...

This was our 3rd NCL cruise, but the 1st on a boat with nearly 4,000 passengers. This is a lengthy and hopefully an informative review. Executive Summary - It’s in the title of the review, NCL Stayaway or as ...

Let's rename it the Norwegian 'Go Away'

Pros: Nice balcony room Great entertainment Cons: Embarkation was a disorganized mess. Told there would be a 'casino at sea' line but never saw it. Took one hour and fifteen minutes to check in. ...

Hectic and poorly run

We've done many cruises (Royal Caribbean, Disney, etc.) so this review is written based on careful and objective comparison. Too many bad experiences on Getaway, it's hard to start. Our bottom-line: we'll avoid ...

Worst Cruise Ever

The boat itself was beautiful and well kept. However, the service is one of the worst. The staff all seemed new and unfamiliar with the boat. They were not very attentive. The bartenders took forever to get drinks ...

There are too many people on this ship. It's a very large boat but the public areas are not much bigger than boats with much less people. That means you are unlikely to find an empty chair anywhere -- not by the ...
