7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 24, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 12218
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The ship was beautiful and clean with lots of activities including ropes course, rock climbing and water slides.  There are lots of bars and always somewhere to get food.  Food was good and nice variety.

The service lacked a bit.  Bar waiters seemed to have better things to do than to walk around and take guest drink orders.  Maybe because they get automatic gratuities these days, they aren't as motivated.  Our room steward never smiled and made us feel like we were interupting her schedule. 

We also didn't like that some of the on-board shows cost extra to go see.

Cabin was fine. Smaller than other ships I've been on, but don't need much room to sleep. Did like that the shower had a glass door rather than a curtain.

Get up early. Time in this port is limited. Take ferry to Virgin Gorda.
