7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 29, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 5455
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The cruise was over rated for being a new ship. It didn't provide enough entertainment for the duration of the 7 days. What little entertainment you had on board it was difficult to reserve a show ahead of time, every time I tried it was overbooked. Our stateroom was smaller than expected and not ready for us when we boarded the ship. Too many additional expenses for things that I feel should have been free on the ship. Our room attendant was a pleasant surprise, the complimentary restaurants had the same menus, the excursions were too expensive, ports didn't offer any entertainment on land and the gift shops were over priced. I would not recommend  this ship to any of family or friends. It was a great disappointment for being a year old ship, never again!!!
