Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Balcony

Freestyle food and choices were great!  Specialty "you pay for" dining restaurants for the most part weren't overpriced. Housekeeping was alright. Excursions were OK-some were just too long to enjoy any kind of wandering or exploring on your own time. More choices thru NCL's Excursions would have been nice too. Could use more on board shopping stores and merchandise choices. (FYI-Liquor purchases both on board and off are kept until the last night of your cruise.)

Need to have more choices & shows during the day (especially on "At Sea" days).

The "shows" to sign up for were always in the evening. Would like to see early afternoon shows offered, especially on "At Sea" days.

Children's Programs

Didn't apply to us, as our kids were over 15.

Cabin / Stateroom

Adult bed was great. Kids bunk and couch bed combo were too hard for any kind of comfort or good sleep.

Ship Tip

Suggestion... Don't sign up for long excursions at every island, or you won't have time to walk around and shop or take in the local sights.
