Norwegian Getaway

October 2015 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern

lots of entertainment for young and old.

There are a few things I did not like about this cruise. The food wasn't great. In the complimentary dining rooms the food was mediocre at best. What is being done is that the best food is saved for the specialty restaurants where you have to pay to eat. I noticed there was never a lobster night, we got shrimp one night. 

The good steaks are also gone. One night there was a choice for a New York strip steak. Well, what we got was 3 pieces of thin sliced steak. Not impressed.

The other thing I really did not like is the fact that now they are charging for room service any time day or night. It's $7.95 per order. I love room service but not if I have to pay extra.  The "All-Inclusive" on cruises isn't going as far as it used to. They want your money at every turn. If you want to eat better, you have to pay. If you want room service, pay. The entertainment was good. The shows were really good, not the usual song and dance from other cruises. There's lots to do with kids. 5 slides, ropes course, rock climbing, mini golf, bungee jumping. There's also a small water park with Sponge Bob characters. It has lots of water shooting from everywhere. The ports were great except for Nassau. The people there are so pushy and disrespectful. The cruise was good but I was expecting something better.

Carnival Breeze

October 2014 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Southern

Very nice cruise

We had a very nice time on our cruise. The entertainment was great, lots to do. The shows were good, the comedy was even better. I was not a fan of the music the dj put (hip pop all the time) but for those who like it, they'll enjoy. There were  lots of places for eating but they closed fairly early. The breakfast buffet was lacking in choices. Dinner buffet ended at 9:30 so if you wanted anything after that it had to be pizza or room service. We usually ate at the dining room for dinner. The food there had good flavors and variety. The one thing I miss the most from my cruise is Guy's Burgers. Those were sooo good. Good quality meat, juicy and flavorful even without all the amazing toppings they had. It opens at noon and closes at 6pm. So no late night burgers. The biggest complaint I have is the beds and pillows. The bed was so hard my husband and I could not sleep more than 6 hrs. at a time. The pillows were lumpy and uneven.

One positive about the cabin is the shower, it was a bit bigger than on other cruises. The ports were beautiful. In Aruba if you have young children ask to be taken to Palm Beach, (were the police station is) The water is a lot calmer and clearer than at Eagle beach. All in all we had a great time, can't wait to do it again.

aismarar's Tips

Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - Instead of going to the buffet, try Flamingos. It's Cuban food similar to what you can find around Miami (Although Miami has better food). For those of you wanting something with a different flavor. The buffet was ok but its the same as any cruise. Flamingos is not your usual buffet style food.
Grand Turk Island - Governors beach looked like a post card, incredibly clear water
Willemstad, Curacao - Blue bay is amazing for snorkeling. so many colorful fish its like being in an aquarium
Carnival Breeze Carnival Breeze - The slides were a favorite with my kids and i loved that they had mini golf and a ropes course.
