The Getaway
"While the Getaway has two outside walking areas on deck 7 & 8, neither one wrapped around the whole ship, requiring you to cross through the ship to get to the other side of the deck.The outdoor walking space on deck 8, which was called the Waterfront, allowed you to walk around the back of the ship but it also featured outdoor spaces for all of the speciality restaurants, which made it crowded in the evenings (it was however a great space to play Scrabble in the mornings)...."Read More

A Terrible Experience

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Norwegian Getaway

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

I have not been on many vacations in my life, so I was quite excited for a 12-day Christmas cruise. I don’t enjoy being away from home for very long, so I was a little unsure of how the cruise would be. My family insisted it would be fun, making promises of delicious food, fun activities, and as much diet soda I could want. Unfortunately, they were very, very wrong and what followed were 12 days ...

We did a 12 day holiday cruise from NYC to the Caribbean on the Getaway, our second time on this ship. First let me say that we are so very grateful for the folks working over the holidays so we could take a vacation. The good: the Port of NY has the embarkation process down. We registered for an 11 a.m. time, showed up on time and were moved through all lines quickly and smoothly. Once we had ...

Classic NCL--not a bad thing, at all

I wanted to shake the holiday season up, given that there are only so many years of turkey, christmas trees, & family drama left in me, so I booked this cruise. It ended up as a solo cruise (don't ask), & I found myself in spa balcony room. Here's my impressions (disclaimer: this was my 4th NCL cruise), & I hope you find them helpful, if not entertaining: CABIN: Solid. A/C was kind of ...

we wanted to something different that's why we picked this cruise. Started off bad when norwegian said they don't price match. The food was basic not many new option for a 12 days cruise. The entertainment was boring and the cruise director thought he was a celebrity. Sold out cruise , only open their nightclub Bliss for after party for new year for 4000+ guest. New years party in the cold , no ...

It was ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!! Dirty rooms, horrible food, terrible service. I’ve been on a new NCL cruises and previously loved them. This made me never want to cruise again it was so bad. definitely will never be cruising with them again. PREMIUM wifi that cost $380 a person barely worked. A HUGE waste of money. Severely overpriced. Please book a cruise elsewhere and do not waste your money here. ...

What we liked - 1. Overall Haven experience onboard was good 2. Embarkation/Demarkation was quick and hassle free 3. Priority seating at shows and restaurants 4. Amazing room steward, he was better than our butler What we disliked - 1. Our room "Haven Penthouse Suite" was creaking whenever the ship was rolling. We had to complain to the Haven guest service and they sent ...

First, I would like to say I've only cruised with Royal Caribbean (16 times) and it's the only cruise line I know. My lovely wife wanted something other than the boring Western Caribbean itinerary that's offered from our home port in Galveston TX. We've traveled to Florida ports many times, to link up with RCL ships providing better destinations. We also hold shares with all three companies, so ...

This is our fourth cruise with NCL (Majesty, Epic, Bliss, Getaway) and we have another five already booked for the future. We love NCL because of the value, the unlimited drink package, the freestyle dining, no unexpected charges, the Latitudes program and so much more. We just became Gold -- we're a little disappointed in how little the benefits increase between Silver and Gold, but we won’t be ...

This was the 7th cruise for me and the 8th for my wife. This was the first time on Norwegian for either of us. Other cruises have been with Carnival and Royal Caribbean. Port stops included Porta Plata, DR, St. John, Antigua, St. Thomas, USVI, San Juan, PR and the cruise line’s private island, Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. There were two complete sea days on this nine-day cruise. We booked ...

Destinations was top of mind as we explored the many choices of cruise lines. A Caribbean cruise was our top choice with as many ports as possible. Norwegian Cruise Line Getaway offered a 9-day cruise to the Dominican Republic, Saint Thomas, Saint Maarten, Antigua, San Jaun Porta Rico and of course the NCL private island in the Bahamas. With only 2 full days at sea, it seemed the best value for ...
