January 2015 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern
We enjoyed sailing on the Getaway Ship. The service was very good, especially by our cabin steward. She was very friendly and greeted us everytime we saw her which was often! The cabin was very comfortable and well organized. The bed was also very comfortable to sleep on. We enjoyed having a balcony and would recommend this feature.
The food in the main dining rooms (Tropicana, Savor and Taste) was very good. All 3 have the same menu and they keep the 'classic entrees' the same each day but have 5-6 different entrees each night in addition to the classics. The appetizers and desserts also change nightly, so there is a good variety. We went to these for breakfast several days as well which is a nice relaxing way to start the day! The main buffet - The Garden Cafe also offered a broad range for breakfast and lunch (never went there for diner). We limit our time at buffets because we don't like the crowded feeling. Norwegian ships are great for the Free Style Cruising as they offer so many dining options.
The ship was also very clean -and there are hand sanitizers everywhere to use throughout the public areas.
There are also plenty of lounge chairs on decks for sunning. We were also very pleasantly surprised how well they handle 4000 people regarding disembarkment. It has been 12 years since we cruised and it seems they have actually improved this process despite the fact there are 2x more people!
Overall it was a great trip!
