May 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Getaway
While the ports we visited were great the ship itself was very disappointing. The noise onboard was non-stop with children running everywhere and, inexplicably, the large screen which is outside and on upper decks on all other cruise lines we have sailed, on Norwegian it was inside in what was called an atrium. It was about 4 decks high but the seating was on the same level as Guest Services, as was the cruise director/emcee with a very loud microphone hosting trivia games, etc. Movies were also shown on the screen. All of this made it impossible to hear the people in Guest Services and because the noise could be heard on many levels, it wasn't a relaxing cruise environment.
