Review summary

As a first time cruiser I had no idea what to expect on my upcoming 7-Night Cruise with the Norweigen Getaway.  Everyone had stories and recommendations.  From the moment I entered the ship, I felt like I was in a magical world.  The Norweigen staff were extremely professional, helpful and HAPPY.  The food was excellent, rating the Complimentary Restaurants with an A and the Speciality Restaurants with an A+. Activities on the ship were numerous and it was your own fault if you got bored.  The Stateroom with a Balcony was well worth the investment.  Plenty of room, sparkling clean and much nicer than a hotel.  The entire cruise  was WELL ORGANIZED.......the Norweigen's have this down to a science.  My next cruise will be with Norweigen.

Service and Staff

I would like to recognie Orlando, who daily kept our room in great shape. I loved the animals he made with the towels. We never had to ask twice for something. Or course with his Outstanding service, I don't think we asked for more than 1 thing the entire time.

Ship tip

The Tropicana Complimentary Restaurant was excellent. The food and entertainment were great. The atmosphere was business casual which was nice. My husband and Brother-in-law actually had to change into "Long Pants" for the dining experience. That made my night.
