Norwegian Getaway

July 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Getaway

Great ship and great ports!

 This was our second time on the NCL Getaway.  Really love this ship.  So much to do and so many restaurants to choose from.  Definitely need to book your restaurants ahead of time, or first day on the ship, because the good times fill up fast.  I think people book all the good times and never show up because only time we could go to the Cagney's steak house was at 5:45pm and when we got there, we saw plenty of empty tables.  I suggest if you can't get the time you want, just walk up to the hostess and there will probably be tables.  Love the Cagney's steak house, and the Teppanaki Japanese restaurant.  Also loved the noodle bar.  Definitely go there.  Items are alacarte and cheap.  Delicious.  One great feature about the NCL Getaway is the Garden Café, on deck 15, for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  They have it figure out.  No lines anywhere.  Other ships should check this deck out.  You can walk around both sides and you don't have those long lines you have on Carnival or Royal Caribbean.  Love it.  And so many choices.  One complaint I have about the Getaway is you can never get in the comedy club.  You have to book that ahead of time too.  Always full.  I enjoy the late night comedy clubs on all ships, but you can't get into this one.  Stupid.  and room is too small.  I think people book ahead for this one too and don't show up.  You can't beat the Carnival George Lopez Comedy Club.  Big room for everyone.  Great show.  The Staterooms on this ship are plenty big.  Only complaint about the rooms are they don't have a drawer anywhere to throw all your stuff.  Took away the drawer space for a fridge that they charge you for every item.  gotta make that money I guess.  All and all, the Getaway is a great ship.  Western Caribbean has great ports of call.  Great cruise.

flakeyscruiser's Tips

Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - Book your specialty restaurants ahead of time, or first day on the ship. The good times fill up first. And book the comedy club. That's always a good show. And definitely book the Illusionarium one night. It is fabulous! It's a dinner show too. You will be amazed on the things they do!
Cozumel, Mexico - Dont be afraid to explore here. Dont limit yourself to the downtown or near ship shopping areas
George Town, Grand Cayman - Be flexable here. If there are lots of ships in port the few attractions will be crowded and not as much fun
Ocho Rios, Jamaica - Try a lunch at the Jerk Center. Its a local place 5 minutes from the ship with good food and live music
Carnival Breeze Carnival Breeze - Give yourself extra time when planning to eat. There are often long lines and few seats.Tell your server at the main restaurants to make sure your meal is hot or it will not be.
Portland, Maine - Wonderful seaport. Gotta have a lobsta roll and chowda!
Sydney, Nova Scotia - Took the double decker pink bus tour. Very imformative. Beautiful covered bridges.
Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - Try to book your cabin in the middle of the ship or towards the back. The food is on the Lido deck, towards the back of the ship, so you just hop on the elevator and head up for coffee in the morning. Bring it back to your balcony and wait for everyone to wake up. Couldn't be more peaceful.
