Review of Cruise from November 1 to November 7 2014

Norwegian Getaway


This is my review of my experience on the Norwegian Getaway.

Sailed on Nov 1 2014 as a solo cruise, male

booked a balcony room.


This being my 2nd ocean liner cruise, 1st was in Europe a few years back on Louis cruises on smaller cruiseship. So first time on a large ship with many amenities.


This cruise was out of Miami with ports being St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Nassau.


So start of first day was very exciting. Getting on this big ship for first time. Overall good experience. would sail with NCL again.

I thought food was good, but way way better in the sit down restaurants. Buffet was good, but what took away from that was the contact cattle herd of passengers there all the time, not the cruise company fault at all, it is what is it.

Yes pool was small, but then again you have to look at the big water park nearby. Lots of slides so that overrides that. I think all cruiseships have different features then others. Stateroom. I had a balcony. Awesome, loved the views, bed was so comfortable. Cabin steward dude was so amazing and knew everyone by first name. Left funny animal shape towels in room.

Will definitely take a cruise with a smaller amount of passengers.

We will also try and go to Nassau again to. at least will make the attempt.

In short NCL is Fantastic.

Food was Fantastic., Crew was Absolutely great. Entertainment Excellent


St martin beaches were beautiful,

Did a  taxi ride around the island was interesting. St Thomas was beautiful, and ride to top in cablecar very nice provided awesome view. 

On ship I did the rock climbing wall, was great. Did the ropes course, with the zip line and walk the plank parts. Did the basketball court. As well ran on running track every morning. 

Casino was lots of fun. Good selection of slots and tables. It is too bad they allow smoking on the ship though.

One complaint is the music in general areas was total crap!!!. the top 20 songs over and over again. No need to hear Rihanna on a cruiseship. Thank you very much.

Overall Would sail again with NCL. Would do a different ship and different route just to mix things up and look for a new experience.

Ship Tip

Try out all the dining options. The buffet is not the main thing of the course. try there other places to eat. to get the whole cruise experience
