Norwegian Getaway

7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Sail Date: October 11, 2014

Cabin Type: Balcony

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Review Summary

I really enjoyed the ship itself--lovely and comfortable.  There was a great number of things to do.  This particular cruise had a fairly large number of children and they were very well entertained I thought--and as I have grandchildren I would love to be able to cruise with them on this ship.  I also thought this particular ship had the best food of any of the Norwegian ships with which I have sailed.


What struck me the most was the crew of the Getaway.  It felt as though the crew was better trained than most, they were courteous and kind and very helpful. The young man who helped with customer service from OUR side of the desk really facilitated any request and answered questions quickly so that the lines moved very efficiently.
