June 2016 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Western
The itinerary was changed at the last minute because of over crowding in Cozumel. Cozumel and Costa Maya days were switched. It turned out to be nice because it rained in Costa Maya the day we were originally scheduled to be there.
Make sure you go to O'Sheehans and have a cheesecake brownie. They are amazing.
We are gold members going on Platinum at the end of this cruise. The ship was out of lapel pins so I had to go onto Ebay and purchase a used one after getting off the ship. It was disappointing to hear that they have been out for 3 months. If something is standard on all ships then it should be available on this one too. They will not send you one in the mail if they get them in. You must be on the ship in order to get it.
We usually get VIP priority check in but was told they only allow Platinum to check in under VIP. It was the first time we had not checked in as a VIP. They said it was because the ship was so big. That was lame because the Breakaway is the same size and we had VIP checkin there from NYC. I think it is the Miami port.
We expected fireworks as well since we had them on the Breakaway and they were advertised. We were told they have not had them in 3 months either. Very disappointing.
