Norwegian Getaway

October 2017 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Western

Great Itinerary and Ship

Norwegian is our third favorite cruise line behind Celebrity and Royal. Had a great time and this was a fun and relatively new ship. Food would've been better if served hot instead of luke warm but a good selection is offered. Alcohol is getting very expensive on board and they have a lot of specialty restaurants now that are not free. I hate to see cruise lines going this route because now you have OK food in the dining rooms which is included with your cruise but the better food costs you. Also for the first time I see them charging for a broadway show where those were always included in your fare as well.

Norwegian Getaway

December 2015 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Western

A fun week on a great ship.

The ship was beautiful with lots of things to do to keep you busy.  We loved the Dueling Piano bar and Comedy shows.  Ports were fun except that we missed the private island in the Bahamas due to rough seas.  Service was real good in the restaurants and freestyle dining is the way to go.

The only negative was getting off Grand Cayman back to the ship via tenders.  We had to wait an hour and a half in a line in hot weather.  Greater coordination is needed to fix that problem.

Only other complaint is the price of a beer is now approaching eight bucks with an 18% gratuity.

joefirm's Tips

Miami, Florida - Got in the night before and hung out in the Brickell section of Miami. Nice bars and restaurants and felt safe.
Harvest Caye, Belize - This is the cruise lines private island and it was very nice!! Very clean lots of beach chairs and umbrellas, zip line and kayak rentals. Drinks are expensive on the island just like the ship.
Cozumel, Mexico - Excellent port and since we've been here several times we decided to hang out downtown, did our shopping and eating and drinking. Senor Frog's always a good place to hang out and a good bang for your buck shopping here.
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - The buffet for breakfast is best as dining room has limited selections.
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - Make sure you enjoy the Dueling Piano bar and comedy shows they were our highlight. Also when dining in the Tropicana try to sit in RD's (Artisian) section as he provided a wonderful dining experience with superior service.
