This was our second cruise on the Getaway within 60 days so that should say something by itself. My son loved the kids splash academy so much that he kept my wife and I up late every night trying to find more late night things to do without gambling to much. Nutella and Donut are awesome and my son now has new friends and he made sure we booked another cruise before we left the ship so he can come back. My son is 8 and we did the Disney Dream cruise 2 years ago and he says he will never go on another Disney cruise ever(thank you).He played in the dodge ball game,basketball game and ping pong tournament during the day. He also did the ropes course, rock wall and mini golf.  Best cruise for active families and the food was much better than Disney and the beds are amazing! The one bad thing was we didn't relax much because we were always doing something I think we need another vacation to relax from our first. People complain about the small pool and yes it is small but the thing I enjoyed was the kids stayed in the kid pool area with the slides and the other pool was only adults unlike the Disney pool. This ship has it all from restaurants to shows and activities. The service was hit and miss from good to excellent where Disney had great service always but I would rather have great food to enjoy. If you need the huge dinner party tables and fancy dress up nights you may be disappointed , because Norwegians do it freestyle!!Happy
