Norwegian Getaway

April 2015 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern

NCL is Improving

Great ship, but there were a few negatives.  The bunks were like sleeping on a basketball court, the food was average at best and the cruise was very casual. There were no formal nights, with shorts and flip-flops allowed everywhere at anytime. My wife and I are veteran cruisers and prefer the traditional two formal nights.

On the positive side, there was no or very little waiting to be seated in the restaurants which we had experienced before on NCL with their freestyle dining. The ship was very clean and our mini-suite was very nice, It had the largest bathroom and the smallest balcony I have seen.

The embarkation and debarkation were excellent, as was the entire staff and crew of the ship.  

Being a veteran of 35 + cruises, I do recommend this cruise, especially to first time cruisers.

Serenade of the Seas

March 2014 - Serenade of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

No More Royal Caribbean for Me

Parking was uncovered, gravel and unmarked. No baggage porters. No instructions. Cost still $112.00.

Beverages $7.00, plus tip, plus tax.

No irons or steamers allowed. No laundry rooms or ironing boards. Pressing offered for a fee.

On board photos were $20.95 for standard 12 x 10, but photos were 5 x 7 inserted in a 12 x 10 photo that had borders of Royal Caribbean photos of the ship.

The nightly show for the late seating dinner at 8 pm, was at 6:30, which defeated the whole purpose for eating late. I never saw a late show because of this.

This was my 37th cruise but last on Royal Caribbean.
