May 2015 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern
The boat activities for the kids were the best I've seen with the 5 water slides, rock wall, rope course, bungie thing etc, The pools are terribly small and dangerously over crowded. If you have kids you are banished to the "kid side." The Adult side is so smokey and packed. The deck of the pool was so slippery, we saw 12 people slip and fall on the first day. The poolside seating is tight and if you don't get up early, good luck getting a good seat. The smoke was thick throughout the boat. Condensed in the casino then dispersed throughout the halls, but always there. The entertainment was ok but hard to secure. The magic show was for an additional cost, seating was very limited and we were left with only banquet seating that cost more than floor seating and the view is far worse. The comedy shows might have been good, but we were unable to attend ANY due to small venue and the seating was not available. Definitely reserve anything you wish to do far in advance. Service was good. There were a few indignate bartenders, but nothing severe. Royal Caribean definitely does a better job with entertainment, and food. And of course Disney does a better job of everything. NCL Getaway is a very US, Them kind of ship. Adult activities don't connect with kid activities outside of the sports deck.
