Bermuda is beautiful. Bring a sitter.
"The experience though of getting on was really unorganized partly by NCL and Covid regulations with mandatory Covid tests that had to be administered 2 days prior and if not taking on site for $75 each which at least we had warning about.Now for the pièce de Résistance, we learned 5 DAYS yep 5 days prior to the cruise that they would not be offering the kids program in the way we who have cruised with kids before know it...."Read More

Everything you are reading in the reviews is the truth. Long wait lines, 4.5 hours of standing for myself and family with no explanations at all. Planned departure was April 19 at 4 pm. Actual departure after midnight. No drinking water available unless you purchased a case or two. Bypassed the first port of call with little to no explanation. Passengers being nickeled and dimes for every little ...

Note to Readers: This is a really long review of my husband and I’s first cruise. We traveled on the Norwegian Getaway from Manhattan to Bermuda from April 17th to April 24th, 2022. I decided to write as inclusive a review as I could to pay it forward to future readers. Prior to this cruise I devoured all the reviews, NCL forums, Facebook groups, and YouTube videos I could. This is my small way to ...

My husband and I took about 30 cruises with different cruise companies and Norwegian Getaway was the worst experience in cruising we ever had! First of all, the embarkation was horrible! Even though we completed all paperwork and uploaded negative Covid test results, pictures, etc prior to embarkation, it took us 6 and a half hours to get onboard! After standing 3 hours outside in the cold, ...

This was the worst cruise EVER. The only good thing was we had an awesome Cabin Steward. We waited on line 4 hours to get on board the ship. Norwegian did not accept our negative Covid test results even though I called NCL to make sure the date would be acceptable for a Sunday departure. We had to pay an additional $150 and get tested there at the pier. We paid an additional $40 for a ...

If this were our first cruise, we would never go cruising again. The embarkation in NY is described as chaotic at best. Nothing indicates where you should go to drop off luggage (we parked for $200 at garage on W 58st and walked). The ship was at pier 88, and we asked a porter what to do, he said to drop bags and go to pier 90. No signs or NCL personnel anywhere directing. At pier 90, we ...

I almost kissed the filthy NYC ground upon my return just because I was grateful to be off that boat.

NEVER AGAIN TL;DR understaffed, overbooked, disorganized, rude, horrendous service, erroneous charges This was my first cruise. My mother bought it as a gift for my sister's 50th birthday, which was in 2020. Obviously we couldn't go then, so we decided to do it now. First problem was the Bermuda Travel authority which needed to approve your application before you could board the ship. Clearly ...

The worst cruise experience I ever had (I had total 6 cruise including 3 from NCL)

This was the by far worst cruise trip I ever had among all 6 cruise trips I had before. (3 were Norwegian). Not sure they were not ready post-pandemic, or they didn't expect this many people will be on this cruise. Bad planning and worst execution. I heard only a few hundred shorts from the full capacity. So, the ship was almost full. Still no apologies from the NCL and no explanation ...

I’ve loved NCL for a while now. This was my 3rd or 4th cruise to Bermuda out of NY on NCL. I’ve also tried RCL for a couple out of Florida and just preferred not to hassle with flights and Covid tests however, I was sadly mistaken. I had a group of five which included 2 kids ages 5 and 12. Firstly, NCL Getaway is much like the other cruise ships they have that’s mid size with 6-7 specialty ...

I was looking for a quick last-minute mini-break, so this 4 day cruise was ideal and priced right for me, a single traveler from the New York area. One day at sea - one day in Bermuda - one day at sea. There was some confusion about boarding times by those who booked early, but that didn't affect me, since I booked a few days prior to sailing. I walked onto the ship with no wait. However, this ...

Love Bermuda!!!! We saw this as a great chance to take a quick "Getaway". We love the ship experience as much as the itinerary, but the ship experience wasn't that great. The food and service wasn't that great, from osheehan's to the MDR's, to specialty dining, to the rude staff at customer service(on board). This cruise just seemed a little off, never saw the Captain, we heard him once on last ...
