September 2016 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Western
Most disappointed in our $200 cruise credit "given" to us by . We were never told we had to jump through hoops to receive something we were "given". The cruise ship was beautiful but in this case you got what you paid for. We chose Specialty Dining and pre-paid our gratuities. When we went to the restaurants, most of the nicer meals had an "up-charge". So you paid to eat at the restaurants and then had to pay more for the better meals. All of the restaurants on board required a reservation in advance, even the free ones. I have a hard time knowing what I am doing the next day while on vacation, much less five to six days in advance. Not happy that most of the good shows also had a charge. We called it the "Up-charge cruise", felt like we were nickle and dimed throughout the trip. We also thought the daily per day, per person mandatory charge was excessive. Ahhhh, to remember the good ole days of cruising. We had wanted to book our next cruise while on board, but had to reconsider sailing on Norwegian and we will also be reconsidering booking through .
