Norwegian Getaway

January 2015 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern

We'll be back!

Loved everything about the cruise: our balcony 14 aft room, friendliness of crew and waitstaff;the restaurants, especially the Tropicana supper club with dance floor and entertainment; the interactive tv and screens for booking shows, planning our day and finding our way about the ship. The sports complex with the ropes course and overhang was daunting!  Good Musical groups played everywhere.The Legally Blonde musical was entertaining and Burn the Floor dance troupe was spectacular. Be sure to book reservations for these.We loved Moderno the Brazilian restAurant. Go hungry! You will get as much ultra tender filet mignon, sirloin, sausages, chicken, ribs, lamb chops,shrimp etc as you can eat. Their huge salad bar even has ceviche. This  was well worth the $20.00 per person. We chose a drink package when we made our reservations two days before the cruise. What  a value; Tangueray 10 for Jim's gin and tonics, and a Bahamas mama or Piña Colada for me every afternoon at the Sugarcane Bar on the eighth deck.This package is good for any of the many bars and restaurants on the ship, The waterfront on the eighth deck was a comfortable place to sink into the cushy chairs and couches to read, muse, nap etc. as you enjoy the view at port or at sea.There were other quiet areas on the ship like the library and an adult area to sun yourself on the 16th deck. The cruise director, Jersey boy, Joel Sanchez was astounding! Warm, friendly, dynamic, he seemed to be everywhere, including  the late night  dance parties on the 16th deck!  We didn't like smelling smoke in parts of the casino, although the ship did a pretty good job isolating the other  smoking areas on the ship. We liked the free style of dining and will certainly book more cruises on Norwegian. We will be back!

AugustGirl's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - didn't like being swarmed and not very clean, but we loved the ship and enjoyed walking around the other cruise ships and yachts.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - butterfly farm was interesting and our bus driver took us all over the place, including the beach by the airport. FUN!
Miami, Florida - didn't take any tours. We winter in southern fla and are very familiar with Miami, especially South Beach
