Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago
Review SummaryFood and service was greater than expected.
The main thing that was a frustration for the week for my friends and I is that we couldn't enjoy the casino\, or hang around the atrium area on 6\,7 or 8 due to second hand smoke. We tried to tough it out in the \"non smoking\" area of the casino on 1st night and it was a horrible coughing spell for 2 of us later that evening. The second day the smoke smell got into my clothing just from walking through the area to get to the other side of the boat. We had to avoid that area and bars the rest of the week because of the smoke. For the remaining days of the cruise we all avoided 6\, 7 & 8 when having to get across the ship. We would walk halls of staterooms instead. I will not be going on the getaway again mainly due to that. I will be fast to research smoking and non-smoking areas if I do go on another cruise. Hope this is helpful. For what it's worth\, my friends and I are healthy\, mid 30s and workout 3-5 times weekly. Smoke really got to us.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: Food\, the Vibe lounge\, the waterslides and ropes course\, comedy show and other shows were good
Cons: Smoking was allowed in main areas and drifted throughout the atrium. We couldn't hang out around floors 6\,7\, and 8 in the most happening part of the ship because you could smell second hand smoke.
