Did the same cruise in Oct. 2018 when Hurricane Michael messed with our stops. Got a great casino deal so we tried it again. We had a morning flight into FLL, shuttle took us to ship arrived about noon and literally walked right on. Great timing. We had bid on upgrade and received ocean view 48 hours prior to cruising for 75.00 pp. This room had plenty of space compared to IS cabins. It ...

Grumpy service staff, depressed atmosphere

When I did my research, Norwegian Getaway seemed to meet our expectations: relaxed atmosphere, fun activities for kids. What a disappointment it turned out to be. Most of its service staff wore a sad face. They seemed to be busy and self absorbed. All they cared was to have their job done according to their time table. We were once all chased out of our room because the housekeeping guy wanted ...

The price seemed good and there were three places i had never visited before. The food was cold almost every meal, had to return it many times; same food in all free restaurants (savor/taste/tropicana every day - breakfast, lunch and dinner; in specialty restaurants being presented bills containing everyone meals, except what i had eaten but being asked to give gratuities on food that i did not ...

This was my third time sailing with Norwegian and second time in the Haven. As part of my fare, I had the Ultimate Dining Package as well as the Unlimited Beverage Package(UBP). 1) On the first night I had a reservation at Ocean Blue and upon checking in with the hostess she informed me of a $12.00 up-charge, but when I booked my trip I was never informed of any up-charges, I searched on-line ...

My sister won a Casino on the Seas cruise, and she invited me to go with her. She let me choose the week. I flew to Fort Lauderdale and took an Uber to Miami. At embarkation we were supposed to go through the fast lane as Casino on the Seas travelers, but the employee right at the sign told us no. We were ushered to the regular line, but it wasn't that slow after all. All week if I needed ...

Embarkation was very fast and disembarkation was even faster. Our room steward was Amazing. Getting the specialty dinner package was definitely worth the price. We had dinner at Cagney’s steakhouse and from start to finish it was a great experience. The cirque steam and dreams show was phenomenal. The shows were great. There was always something to do. The only part I wasn’t to fond of was the ...

Being Platinum with NCL the last few years, we have looked first with them and secondly with Carnival. I got a great price on an inside cabin, which is all we normally go with anymore. Being retired, price is something we always look at first. The better the prices the more cruises we can take. The Getaway was the largest ship we have been on, which was somewhat of a concern. The boarding ...

So I took a family reunion Cruise in 2017 on The Epic, first time using NCL. I hated the Epic, ship lay out horrible, staff taxed and uninviting in the bars, ship not impressive. When I returned home told my spouse never again on The Epic and only will I consider NCL again if we could try the Haven, we did in 2018 how wonderful it is. A first class experience on The Getaway. They treat you like a ...

A wonderful time was had by all, weather was great especially in Roatan and Belieze for December. Last time we were on the Escape but noticed some differences with the Getaway the ship was in need of an upgrade in some areas such as the carpet in the rooms and the beds. Woke up every morning feeling every spring in that mattress. One thing that ticked me off is NCL doesn't allow much time after ...
