If this is your first ever cruise, you will like it. However, if you compare with any other cruise you've been on, you will agree with the following - - Staff wasn't prepared to service the roughly 5000 passengers on cruise, of which ... Read more

Having previously been on the Breakaway, the layout of the Getaway was familiar. Overall, we enjoyed the entertainment very much. We especially enjoyed The Million Dollar Quartet, Cirque, Wine Lovers, the Musical and Howl at the Moon. Burn ... Read more

Seemed many things cost money that I wasn't used to, such as some shows, bar cover charge, & postcards, & we wouldn't have known about the GLOW (former White Out Party) if we hadn't been on Cruise Critic. We booked our onboard ... Read more

I enjoyed the many activities on the ship but found that there were simply not enough employees to take care of customers, especially in the dining rooms. It should not take 2 1/2 hours to eat 3 courses. I understand a leisurely meal but ... Read more

OK, So we did not choose this cruise, it was selected for us by the gallery which paid for the cruise... So, once aboard there was nothing to do except mill about until the staterooms were ready. On every other cruise we've taken, ... Read more

After many cruises over the years, my husband and I always thought our favorite line was Norwegian Cruise Lines. We have been several places with them. This however was the largest ship I have ever been on. It was like a small City, with ... Read more

Compared to the mega ships that we've been on, it was a nice change to be on a smaller ship. It helped that it was not sold out. The food in the Main Dining Room was quite good most of the time. Cagney's and Moderno were excellent. ... Read more

We went for my daughter's 22nd birthday. Open bar so lots of drinking going on but overall a great 3 day trip to the Bahamas. Loved Nassau! We went to Fort Charlotte and the distillery - the fort was wonderful, but I wouldn't waste ... Read more

This cruise to Havana was a way for us to see this Capital City in a short cruise from our home state of Florida. The Sky's colorful exterior flourishes belie the ho-hum interior, in particular our veranda suite. The furnishings were ... Read more

We have apparently been spoiled by the quality of Princess cruises (our cruise line of choice)! This is our first cruise with Norwegian (although we have sailed with 2 other lines) and the difference was immediately noticeable. ... Read more

I picked this cruise because it sails out of New York so I wouldn't have to fly. The ship was wonderful. We had a balcony cabin on deck 14. It was nice being so close to Spice H20 and the Buffet but since there aren't many other food ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze. It’s a great ship. We love dining at Ocean Blue. Le Bistro and La Cucina are great as well. The specialty restaurants are mostly good. The one thing that irks me is paying for room service. Coffee etc. ... Read more

We’ve been to 6 cruises with ncl and we really enjoyed cruising with this company. By far loved the getaway in spite of negative reviews of others. We were in the family inside cabin because we want to save other things like extra ... Read more

My wife and I were talked into the 7-Day Western Caribbean Norwegian cruise on the Getaway by another couple. We were skeptical of cruises for no rational reason, but we decided to give it a try because our friends were so pumped about it. ... Read more

The food was great, and there were a wide variety of choices. Staff was attentive and well trained/professional, yet friendly and very accommodating. What was most disappointing was the wine selection. We purchased the unlimited drink ... Read more

My now wife and I had never been on a cruise and could not decide on a singular location for our honeymoon, so we decided to try out a cruise. I did some research and asked around to my friends who had cruised before and the general ... Read more

Overall, I enjoyed my Escape cruise. I expected the Escape to feel more crowded than it was, given the number of guests. On my last cruise on the Pearl, the hallways were more congested, maybe because there were more people with ... Read more

The deal was for 3rd & 4th person free. Then 2 days before the cruise we were informed we were able to upgrade from our inside cabin to a balcony for $100! Balcony was great but need to put BIG no smoking signs on the walls to remind ... Read more

Our cruise was a relaxing great time. We arrived about noon at the ship and parked in the multicolored parking garage which cost about $20 a day. This was a safe covered lot with a 3 minute walk to the ship. The check in time was not ... Read more

We were originally scheduled on the Eastern route, but due to Hurricane Irma it was shuffled to the Western route. This was fine with us as it was our first cruise ever and hadn't been to these ports either. Everything was top notch. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Norwegian is our first choice when cruising. The ship is large and can feel over crowded on rainy days, which we had two. There did not seem to be as many activities on this cruise as on others ( this is our ... Read more

This was my 2nd time on this ship, because the first time was so awesome! Big ship where I could enjoy frequent long walks (didn't gain but 1.5 lbs) and the full moon (balcony room). Great food & entertainment. We were supposed to go ... Read more

We chose this cruise, as on land we like hotels with 2 bedroom suites, luxury, all inclusive and a kids club for our children, daughter 2, son 8. It was getting increasingly difficult to find hotels like this, so last year we tried Escape ... Read more

We just returned from a 7-day to the Western Caribbean (due to the hurricane changing our itinerary). The ship itself is beautiful. There are many dining options and venues on board. We had a balcony cabin, 11894. It was about the ... Read more
