Review Summary

I love the restaurants on the Getaway. The food and service are extremely good. The Park West Art Gallery is the best one I have encountered on a ship. The public areas are too scarce on this ship. Most of the public areas have been taken up with restaurants including dining on the decks. I didn't find a single place to sit outside other than the sun lounging area. The 2 pools are very small and overly crowded. If you're looking for a relaxing cruise, I advise choosing another ship. If you are looking for a family vacation with lots to do for children, this is your ship. I do like the library onboard. It's enclosed and fairly spacious; however, it's next to the main Atrium area and can be noisy depending on what's going on at the big screen next to it.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
This cabin has one of the larger balconies but is still on the smaller side. The cabin isn't as noisy as the other balcony cabin I've had on this ship. I think this is because the bed is next to the balcony instead at the front of the cabin. I could easily hear voices on cabins in both sides as well as the telephone ringing and the toilet flushing.

Ship Tip

I would always buy the 7 night restaurant package for $139. The restaurants are super. My favorite (both for seafood and steak) is Cagney's. Unless you like crowds, avoid the pool area.
