Norwegian Getaway

December 2015 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Western

Good experience but could have been great

Positives:

+The ship was a great size and had plenty for my wife and two young girls (7 and 8) to do.

+My kids loved the splash academy

+There was great entertainment that I felt comfortable taking my kids to.

 

Negatives:

-It's likely just part of having a kids program but I heard reports from my kids, and other families, that the children's workers yelled a lot at the kids.

-The free fall slide are a cool idea but it sounds crazy to me that you would ever have a ride which would require someone to remove their wedding ring to participate.

-I went the first week of December and there as basically no reference to Christmas anywhere on the ship. I was really hoping they would make the experience a little more magical with Christmas decorations/themed activities. 

 

Overall the experience was a positive but it was not good enough to have me come back. Once on the Getaway is enough for me.

Anthem of the Seas

November 2015 - Anthem of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Reintroduced to Cruising

I had only be on a cruise one other time and it was a MUCH smaller ship and the weather was horrible. So this was a wonderful experience and a great way to get back into cruising.

 

The ship was large enough that it made it feel like there was plenty to do but small enough so I didn't feel like it was a pain to get to anywhere.

 

The ship does seem to play to millennials pretty heavily, but considering that I am one it was perfect for me. The art throughout the ship was fun. The high speed internet was reliable enough (still not as strong as a home wifi). And the seaplex could keep me entertained for days on end. 

 

In the end it was a wonderful experience and would love to go back.
