December 2014 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Getaway
This was my 7th cruise, 3rd with NCL. There were plenty of activities for all ages. The ropes course and water slides are great for teens and preteens, and there was one slide for younger children. The layout of the pools was not good. The adults only pools did not have enough unshaded areas. The kids pool area only had about 30 unshaded lounges. If you like the sun, but want to be near the pool, you better go to the deck by 8:30AM to get a lounge chairs. The main (free) dining menus and food quality are decent but not amazing. The specialty restaurants (pay extra) are excellent. Shows - legally blond was excellent, the comedian was mediocre at best, and the illusionarium (pay extra) show was great, especially if you have kids ranging from 6 to 15. The regular balconies are very very small, much smaller than on any other ship that I have sailed. Overall, I would recommend this ship, but it is one notch below RCL allure and oasis.
