7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 27, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 5238
Traveled As: Couple

The cruise itself was fantastic.  Beautiful islands and a Norwegian staff that really try to make sure that you have the best vacation.  

However... the ship is poorly designed.  The main theater held 850 guests and there were over 4,000 on board.  FREESTYLE went right out the window!  You had to book EVERY show and EVERY dining reservation WAY IN ADVANCE.  Do not even try to board this ship without already planning every detail.  Without reservations you will STAND in the back of theater for EVERY show and NEVER  get into the specialty restaurants.

This is the first time we did not buy the $250 voucher for a future cruise
