This was our first cruise, and I think it was good. Not sure I will do it again since I am bit restless but I have never been this relaxed after a vacation. Food: Every meal we had was warm, except the breakfast and frosted flakes in cold milk. The food was great, although going to O´Sheehans during lunch time was a bit tedious since the wait was 30-45 minutes to get food, But hey, it is busy what would you expect. Savor/Taste service was great and we got as many refills of wine we wanted. But I guess if you are obnoxuios and grumpy you get the service you deserve (as I have read many reviews stating that service is bad...) Pool area. As everywhere else in US there needs to be music at a very loud level all the time. This is why the cruise gets a 4 instead of a 5. It would be nice to be able to have a conversation without shouting. Other than that it was great. Kids club. Since mu kids do not speak English it was not that fun to be there except when it was free play and they could play Wii. Night life: Not much except, one nnight when it was Glow party and H2O rocked. Cabin, it worked since you do not spend much time in there. Lots of storage space underneath beds and other places. On shore: No excursion. Taking taxis on the islands are EXPENSIVE but it is worth getting off the ship and go to a beach. I gained 3 kg on the cruise (which is something like 7 pounds) since you eat, drink and do not do enough excersice... I guess to sum it up, if you expect to get served like royalty you will get dissappointed. If you expect to get what you pay for this is a good ship to sail on. Read Less

Having recently returned from the Eastern Caribbean aboard Norwegian Getaway, I can only say that, once again, we had another fine cruise aboard a Norwegian Cruise Line Vessel. Having sailed now on 17 cruises, 12 of them with Norwegian, one can only surmise our choice of favorite cruise line. We simply don't understand what all the "complainers" are talking about. From the easiness of the embarkation process, to the more than friendly staff, this traveler has nothing but kidos for the cruise line and the product that they offer. Having read many negative reviews of the rude staff, one has to wonder how those passengers presented themselves to that staff to feel that they were treated in less than friendly fashion. We were, and always are, treated kindly, and treat people as we would expect to be treated. Another "issue" that I read about constantly is the food, or the presentation of same. Personally, I can't put a finger on what these people are complaining about. Our experience of the restaurants is always up to , and beyond, par. With all the options available, such as the specialty restaurants, and main dining venues, one has to figure that some passengers just cannot be pleased, no matter what is offered them. Perhaps they would fend better if they just stayed home, and cooked for themselves. We experienced the likes of the Tropicana Room (main dining venue), Cagney's Steak House, Teppanyaki, La Cucina, O'Sheehans, and the Haven Restaurant, as we were afforded this experience thru our Aft Facing Penthouse booking. Each and every one of these dining experiences were above and beyond the call. All of the reservations for these venues were made on board the vessel, and considering that we were traveling with an additional 5 people in our party, it was never an issue getting a table for 7, at the time we desired. If we waited (upon our arrival time) it was always less than a few minutes. All our dinners took 2 hours, and it was expected and welcomed. I mean, where is one going that they cannot enjoy a lovely dinner with friends and family? If that dinner (time) conflicted with a booked show.....well then YOU booked the wrong show time! Don't blame your misfortune on the cruise staff because you forgot to do your homework prior to boarding. We booked shows beforehand, such as Burn the Floor, Levity, and Legally Blonde, just to make sure we had a ticket. I can assure you that we were traveling with individuals that waited to book these shows while on the vessel, and never encountered a problem acquiring the same time that we did. We also spoke with other passengers who also booked on board, without issue. I have read many reviews that the ship was "loud, overly crowded at the pools, not a deck chair to be found, and not a quiet space to be had". I tell you honestly that this is not the case. We encountered quiet a few "parties" aboard the vessel, lovely afternoons around the busy pools enjoying the music in a lounge chair, and many wonderful quiet places that abound, if one ventures around, rather than complain. We will continue to sail with Norwegian Cruise Line Ships for our future adventures, and can only hope that others can find their inner self to enjoy the same. One has to wonder.....if someone cannot enjoy a cruise vacation, how sad for them that their life is so bleak. Thank you again Norwegian Cruise Lines, as always, WE'LL BE BACK!   Read Less
