June 2016 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Western
We really enjoyed our NCL cruise! Our cabin was fantastic and the ship was outstanding. We also really enjoyed the ports. This was our first NCL cruise, which had some differences. For one, reservations are required for all the shows... Even the comedy shows. This was a big difference as on other cruises you can just show up. Also the comedy shows, which were very popular, were held in a smaller venue - so not everyone that wanted to attend could.
Also, it seemed like the cruise was constantly charging for things that should be included. For instance, with the ultimate beverage package you still need to buy bottles water. For the complimentary restaurants, on the menu there are still meals that have a surcharge.
For the ultimate dining package, some of the included restaurants have an additional charge.
