October 2014 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern
We had a wonderful time on NCL Getaway. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and always smiling. We were welcomed everywhere we went. There was one night when I had to stay in my cabin and my family went to eat dinner. We had extended family with us and there were 8 for dinner. The 8 members were happy to wait, but the hostess attempted to set them at a table for 6. Obviously this was not going to work, so the family asked if they could wait for a bigger table. The hostess's heart was in the right place, just a busy night. Unfortunately, the service was very slow that particular night, as well as our last night on board. The food was barely hot and the dessert, a chocolate strawberry volcano, was not hot and the middle was not runny. We did fill out a survey for this night. However, these were the only concerns we had the entire vacation. It amazes me what goes into entertaining and taking care of all of the visitors on a ship like this. NCL does it, almost, seamlessly! Highly recommend NCL and the Getaway!
