Norwegian Getaway Lots of Upcharges

Sail Date: January 17, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The food was good we liked the smaller main dining rooms found the service better and food served hotter. I was very disappointed in how many extras they charge you for such as the better shows and better dining I feel those should be included in your cruise price.  No really special dishes desert served (always had lobster somewhere on other cruises, none on this trip). Attended many on ship activities and most were very disorganized, something I have not found on other lines.  The ship was very new and very clean no signs of age on this ship which was a plus.  Our previous cruise was on Royal Freedom of the Seas I did prefer the professionalism and food much better on that line. We loved freestyle dining. 

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
You had to pay for better entertainment, all entertainment should be included in your cruise price.
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Our 7 day cruise only had 3 stops, would have preferred 4 stops.
Cabin / Stateroom
Miami, Florida
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Nassau, Bahamas
Everyone seems to be trying to sell you something everywhere you go, gets old.


Try the smaller (Taste and Savor) main dining rooms for meals much more intimate and at no charge.
