There is a charge for everything! Not the best employee on this ship!

NCL has a charge now for room service, $8.00 per order! Speciality dinning has invaded the main dining rooms, there are charges for the steaks and lobster. Only two speciality restaurants has a fix price now, all ...

Worst cruise ever

I have cruised on many ships and this is by far the worst. I was in a mini suite and the use of space was poorly planned. There were no amenities in the bathroom. If you wanted to take a bath you couldn't reach the ...

On October 10, 2015 my family and I along with 14 other people took a cruise on the Norwegian Getaway out of Miami. Every aspect of this cruise was horrible. The short version of what had happen is the child care ...

Service was bad!!! The servers at all the freestyle restaurants were too busy, rushed, not friendly. The only saving grace at the tropicana was the live salsa band they had every night. The food was good but the ...

Not What I Expected

Starting with embarkation, we were directed to a line, in which we waited 30 minutes, just to find we were directed to the wrong line. This cruise included 4 days at sea. The NCL web site made it sound like there ...

Worst Cruise Ever

My husband and I have been on 19 cruises overall. Mostly Royal Caribbean, one Princess, two Holland America, and seven Carnival. I can say without a doubt that Norwegian was the absolute worst cruise ever. Our ...

Never going on Norwegian again.

I have cruised several times and my cruise on Norwegian Getaway was by far the worst. I will always choose Carnival over Norwegian. Start with the boarding process. They stick you in a large room with all the other ...

Ship was nice but not the food

Had to pay additional for food and some entertainment. The specialty restaurants fill up fast so, make reservations ahead of time. I have never been on a cruise like this. Several of my co-workers were floored ...

2nd Norwegian Cruise a Huge Disappointment

We cruised before with Norwegian on the Sun and had a great experience. Our recent cruise on the Getaway was a huge disappointment. The ship itself is giant and offers a lot with one big problem - it is entirely ...

Nightmare on the Water!

Our cruise began under Murphy's Law. We left Miami at 4 p.m. and returned to Miami by 8 p.m. There were problems that were caused by a sailboat, or the story was told. We should have known then that it was going to ...

I am not even sure where to begin - for starters we never received a wash cloth in our cabin, I actually had to use a hand towel as a wash cloth, we never received cleaned cups or glasses in our cabin. The product ...

Getaway is what I would call it too.

We had reasonable expectations after booking this cruise on Norwegian's latest and greatest ship. The ship however did not live up to our expectations. The good: Embarcation and debarcation on the ship was never ...

Think twice before sailing this heap of the seas.

I've cruised many times, on big ships like Oasis of the Seas and little ships like Sovereign of the Seas. This ship design is totally flawed. I think Norwegian made a big mistake and they know it. First, I will ...

Choose a different cruise line.

After a recent NCL cruise on the new Getaway, I can only advise the public that the ship itself is beautiful, but beware of the " who cares" attitude that is exhibited by the NCL guest relations department. On ...

Getaway from the Norwegian Getaway

There are cruise ships and there are floating sardine tins. Sadly the Norwegian Getaway falls into the latter category. From the moment you board, to meal times, to spending time pool side, to the group tours, ...
