Norwegian Getaway

January 2016 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Western

Married on Board & Honeymoon

Our Honeymoon was amazing, thanks to the NCL staff.  We received a 'treat' daily to our stateroom; priority exiting at tender ports; priority exiting on return to Miami; and invitation to the Capt's reception.  And, at Cagney's we received a free bottle of champagne.


The wedding planner associated with NCL barely did their job prior to us getting on board.  12 days before departure she asked '...we have 14 guests attending your wedding..."  No, we had 41 and this info was provided 45 days in advance.  On day of wedding, in port, one couple was not on the list and had it not been for the Staff Captain on duty, they wouldn't have been granted access (after flying down fro Chicago).


The wedding was perfect once it got started and everyone had a great time.  We had 22 guests sail with us and we were even selected to play the "Not So Newlywed" game.  :)


Back to wedding, one minor complaint is that the photographs are expensive, and the photographer is one of the on board staff and NOT a wedding photographer.


Loved our cruise!!!

Zeb's Tips

Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - Get the beverage package, if you can get it on a deal for free.
Colon, Panama - Nothing much to do here and it was a local holiday, so no beer/booze sales,
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Prefer beach away from town. however, for $25 got: two chairs with cushions, umbrella, and bucket of 6 beers.
Regal Princess Regal Princess - The balcony was wonderful. Smoking cigars only in Churchill's (inside) and not being able to smoke where others do isn't fair.
