This was our 1st cruise on NCL. We have been on Royal or Celebrity in the past, so we were looking very forward to try a new cruise line. The Getaway is a beautiful ship with some great amenities. The ship is large holding 4000 plus passengers. The good points: there are many specialty dining is good and so is atmosphere. There are many bars that have musical entertainment all the time. The anytime dining is pretty good. We have not tried the no assigned table,waiter or time before. We were surprised how easy is was and nice to eat when you want to.The main dining room food was very good as well and service was exceptional !

Some not so good points: Being a large ship the stateroom hallways are very tight ( probably a foot narrower than other ships). Staterooms ( we had a balcony) are smaller as well, but the bathroom was larger and had a great shower. 

The worst point was the pool.  There is only one pool and the capacity is 28 people !!! getting a chair even close to the pool is impossible. The kids pool & water slide was good but crammed into a small area with very little seating as well.

Nightly entertainment was fair, they had stage shows and a comedy club (fair also) ..A magic show ( fee was $29 included dinner ) ...Casino was nice, but lacked ventilation ...very smokey. was very good...very attentive crew & staff
