7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 16, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The ship was fabulous. Not glitzy but quietly elegant. The staff all went above & beyond to help. Everyone was cheerful & willing to listen to whatever the question might be.Our cabin steward was wonderful & loved the guy who came through at breakfast with a candle on his head and called out "wakie, wakie.  I have a bright idea." He always brought a smile to everyone's face. Another girl at one of the entrances to the Garden Cafe always said "washie, washie" as she sprayed our hands. Freestyle Dining was a hit & all in all, loved the entire trip. We will be traveling on NCL from now on. We also really enjoyed our cabin stewards "towel menagerie". We had a frog, dog, elephant & a pheasant. Cabin was always neat when we would get back in. Loved sitting on the balcony, watching us come into port, if we weren't already on deck.  We'll be back...Big Smile

Ship Tip

We used the card room & certainly got our exercise by walking around the ship. The process of getting on & off the ship was speedy & easy. We dined in the Tropicana Room, Savor, the Taste, Garden Cafe, O'Sheehan's Bar & Grill. Legally Blonde was fantastic & Burn the Floor Havana.
