Nice, new ship but an awful lot of people makes for lots of standing in line
Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western

Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 12882

We had a decent balcony cabin with larger than expected shower and bathroom. Overall quality of food and service was not spectacular but about what was expected. Did several specialty restaurant dinners which were good. The Ultimate Beverage Package worked for us but we really think specialty coffees should be included as they are on other cruise lines.
On sea days, finding a deck chair after breakfast was impossible. They go very fast (and early). Even finding a chair or couch to lounge in elsewhere was difficult, and the bars were overflowing with people.
The lines to embark/disembark were excessive as were the ones for port calls. The worst was the tenders to Great Stirrup Cay. Terribly long waits to get to a small island that was too windy to enjoy any of it. We just went back to the ship.

The Ultimate Drink Package includes some very nice, high end liquor and mostly acceptable although limited selection of wines. We discovered early on that they have no problem whatsoever serving us doubles of both wine and liquor that reduced our visits back to the bar.
