Excellent time!

Although the weather was forecasted to be wet...we had excellent weather!  Staff was great, food and beverages were really good!  Those who complain that the wait for alcoholic beverages was too long...don't know where you were trying to get a drink!  Never waited more then a minute or two unless you were waiting to be waited on by the pool....only then did I see any issues, mostly because every single chair was taken on deck.  If you don't want to wait...go for a walk and hit up a bar....they are everywhere!


If you want some quiet time...go to the "Waterfront" one ever there...spent hours looking at the water and drinking our hearts one was around!


Only negative - in teen club - the teen club staff members did not do much except keep adults out.  Unlike Disney - where they make sure that everyone is getting to know each other - they did not take the time to help the "single" kids get to know new groups of kids.  Although it was Easter break and about a third of the cruisers were kids with "built in friends" meaning lots of big families traveling together.


Over all a great cruise.

Nice size cabin in a good location for us. We like being near the elevators!

The Getaway is a really big ship. It had a lot of places to go and do things. However, because of its size, it also has a lot of people. Almost 5,000 cruisers and 1700 staff make for a lot of people in a pretty small pool area. Food and beverage was very good.
