Norwegian Getaway

July 2015 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern

Too crowded, too young

Getaway is too large a ship for comfort.  There are lines everywhere, people, particularly with small children everywhere.  Not for the older traveler.  Food is actually better in the buffet than the restaurants where the food seems to suffer from overcooking and lack of imagination.  A new executive chef is in order or  perhaps a better food/cooking budget.  Music is all for the very young crowd, similar to Carnival, but Carnival is better, having at least one piano bar last time we sailed them.  The only saving grace was "Burn The Floor," which is the best onboard entertainment I've seen in over 20 years of cruising.  The other show "Legally Blonde" was marred by lousy acoustics and un-understandable lyrics.  Two shows are not enough, although perhaps the age of the audience might have something to do with it.  Paid shows are not a solution for cruising.  Sales pitches are everywhere and quite intrusive.  The Cruise Director is smarmy and very in-your-face, but aren't 90 percent of them.
