This was our 2nd time on the Getaway and it is okay. We like Norwegian for the fact that you can go to Dinner at anytime; afterall you are on vacation. Staff is very nice. If you like the dining staff entertainment, do another cruise line. Freestyle Dining is more important to us.


Cabin / Stateroom
Water pressure is very good in the shower.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very easy on and easy off.
Ship Quality
Everything I saw was very clean!! Those kids work so hard!!!!!
Destinations and Excursions
The same no matter what cruise line you choose...some good some bad but all overpriced lol....but thats vacation :)
Onboard Activities
In my opinion this is where Norwegian needs to make some improvements. They do not have a theater show every night like most ships and really need to......they have 2 theater shows and you need to make a reservation in advance, the comedy club Headliners is ok; the entertainers we have seen are good, the seating is very uncomfortable and hard to get a cocktail unless you get there awhile before the show starts. Here too you need a reservation in advance (like 3 days). Too Much preplanning in my opinion. The Magic Show is a dinner show with and advanced reservation and fee of $29.95 pp.
Service and Staff
Amazing group of kids that work so hard for you day after day !!!!
Food and Dining
Speciality Dining at Cagneys, Modena and LeBistro was amazing!!! Regular Dining Rooms ok.
Miami, Florida Didnt go there.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas Didnt go there, to windy, tenders could not be launched.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Do not pay for beach time tour! Dump!!! Years ago we did Dunns river falls/Jamaican Bobsled and thats fun.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Very friendly place.
Cozumel, Mexico
Very friendly place.


This ship holds (3900) the pool is very small and you really cant use the pool. The H2O deck area for sun bathing is packed, you cant even get a lounge chair, if you do you cant get in it;one on top of another. NOT complaining, this is cruising, I am just pointing out what to expect.
