The "Getaway" is the newest Ship in the Norwegian Fleet and it is Large (4,000 passengers) and Very Nice. The Ship is Clean, all around. The Staff is friendly, the Main Show entertainment is Top Notch ("Burn the Floor" and "Legally Blonde the Musical"). Lot's of activities and a couple of pretty intense water slides (try the Green Tube). Some of the music around the pool was, okay.....
And we Really Liked the Food.
We did not go to any of the Specialty Restaurants and while they did look inviting, frankly, the food at the main dinning rooms was so good and varied, we did not see the need to try them. The Buffet (which we had for some Breakfasts and Lunch) was excellent as well.
We did have the "Ultimate Beverage Package" (a freebie) and it was quite good, any single drink, nearly anywhere on the ship, up to $11.00 each was "free" (with an automatically 18% gratuity included)...and you could have some very nice liquors, I happen to like "Bombay Sapphire" Gin and that was included. My wife Loved the "Spellbound" Chardonnay (so did I, it's Very Good).
The ship was late getting into two ports and we had to rearrange our excursions to accommodate that, but it was okay.
I would definitely recommend this cruise and we did have a Really Nice Time.
