OUR VERY BEST CRUISE IN 25 YEARS

Sail Date: December 13, 2014

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

NEARLY 25 YEARS AGO MY WIFE AND I MADE OUR VERY FIRST CRUISE, IT WAS WONDERFUL. THROUGHOUT THOSE YEARS WE HAVE TRIED MANY CRUISE LINES AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN SATISFIED WITH OUR CRUISES. ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO WE DISCOVERED NCL AND FREESTYLE. WE HAVE MADE 9 CRUISES  SINCE THEN ON 8 DIFFERENT NCL SHIPS AND I MUST SAY WE HAVE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED. LAST WEEK WE SAILED ABOARD THE NCL CRUISE SHIP GETAWAY AND IT WAS THE VERY BEST YET. WE SAILED TO ST. MARTEN AND ST THOMAS AND BACK TO NASSAU BAHAMAS. I WILL TRY TO BE BRIEF IN EXPLAINING THAT EVERYTHING, DINING, PORTS, STATEROOM, ENTERTAINMENT, CASINO, FOOD AND WARMTH AND CHARM OF THE STAFF WAS OVERWHELMINGLY WONDERFUL...OUTSIDE OF THE TERRIBLE SEATS WITH A HARD METAL BAR BRUISING YOUR BUTTOCKS IN THE THEATER, I GIVE THIS CRUISE SHIP A 10+...WE DEFINITELY WILL CRUISE ON THIS SHIP AGAIN IN THE FUTURE. 

Ship Quality
A NEW SHIP WITH COMFORTABLE STATEROOMS
Food and Dining
THE VERY BEST WE'VE EVER ENCOUNTERED ESPECIALLY THE BUFFET AND TROPICANA
Service and Staff
MOST LOVELY AND PERSONABLE CREW WE'VE EVER ENCOUNTERED
Entertainment
BURN THE FLOOR WAS EXCELLENT DIDN'T CARE FOR LEGALLY BLOND
Children's Programs
MANY CHILDREN ON THIS CRUISE, THEY WERE WELL TENDED BY CRUISE STAFF
Onboard Activities
ABOUT THE SAME AS ALL OTHER SHIPS, JUST O K !
Destinations and Excursions
WE REALLY ENJOYED ST MARTEN...ST THOMAS WAS OK, NICE BEACHES BUT PRETTY PRICEY
Cabin / Stateroom
PLENTY OF LEG ROOM, WE TENDED TO HAVE A SMALLER BALCONY THEN WE USUALLY HAVE BUT IT WAS STILL VERY NICE..BATHROOM SEEMED SPACCIOUS
Miami, Florida
EXPENSIVE PARKING IN STRUCTURE NEAR SHIP
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
FUN AND REWARDING IF YOU ENJOY SHOPPING, CASINO WAS FUN, FELT COMFORTABLE WITH THE NATIVES.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
GREAT BEACHES BUT AN EXPENSIVE PLACE TO SHOP , TOUR OR EAT
Nassau, Bahamas
BEEN THERE 7 TIMES, VERY INTERESTING. WE FAVOR ATLANTIS BUT TIME TO SHORT TO USE THEIR FACILITIES WHEN ON A CEUISE

Tip

WE ATE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH IN THE BUFFET (OUTSTANDING) ATE AT THE MODERNO BRAZILLIAN RESTRAURANT ($20) ONCE (VERY GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE) BUT ATE DINNER IN THE TROPICANA EACH NIGHT (EXCELLENT SERVICE, FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE)
