September 2014 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern
We will only cruise with Norwegian. They have earned customers for life with their exceptional customer service. We mentioned to a supervisor that we were celebrating our anniversary & when we returned to our cabin we found a huge sign taped to the wall saying 'happy anniversary from your housekeeping staff', balloons, a towel animal of 2 swans kissing which formed a heart in the center & a small cake! It made us feel so special! NCL staff determined to keep you happy! The Getaway is an amazing ship! So many top of the line shows! Legally Blonde is not to be missed! Annika Odergard at the piano is not to be missed. 'Burn the Floor' dance show is not to be missed. The only
negative about this ship is it needs more lounge chairs in the shade. St. Maarten was beautiful and the locals were friendly & helpful although they do heavily sell their goods to you on the beach. Even so, I recommend Orient Bay beach. Beautiful! Soft, white sand & turquoise water! Taxis waiting to take you for $7 per person, easy! I would skip Nassau. Locals are aggressive, tourist crime rate is up & beaches are dirty. Stay on the ship which has everything you need! Great trip!
