The Getaway has so much to see and do !! You will never experience a dull moment on this ship. From the rock wall and ropes course with plank and zipline to the 2 or 3 jewelry/ watch raffles a day, and everything on between there is SOOO much to see and do. There is also something for everyone. It was amazing. I, unfortunately, think with the size of this ship compared to one like the Dawn that Norwegian has ships have gotten so big they have lost the sense of community. That is kind of sad. 

Aside from that I would recommend this ship, the Getaway, and the Eastern Caribbean itinerary to anyone who asks. I have seen tons of negative feedback about the different ports, but I did not find any of them to be any worse than touristy places like New York. 

The staff on the cruise was amazing!! They were totally approachable, beyond friendly, and just GREAT!! :)
