Great time celebrating my wife's birthday & our 26th wedding anniversary with a group of (8).

Thanks! to dining waiter: Frankie, bar attendant: Heidi, shore excursionist: Marcus, and room attendant: David, we had a great cruise aboard the NCL getaway. The entire crew was awesome, entertaining and very professional.

Miami was hot! However American Airlines was not fun to travel with, rough return home, broken luggage and few rude employees.

Overall, we had fun... that is what matters. Wish they had more destinations out of Boston, MA

Ship Tip

Get up extra early in the a. m. hit the gym each day with a positive outlook.
Enjoy the spa pampering services, specials offered throughout the week... Great deals and well worth the time to just relax!!

very busy location, some had mentioned Ft. Lauderdale, but we choose Miami for directness.

worth the excursion to the private island. Food is very tasty and the beach is just amazingly relaxing, nice to see such a location that also rescues animals like jaguar, monkeys and tropical birds. The ruin on the beach was a nice surprise.

absolutely my favorite ruins adventure. Our tour guide Pablo was great. bit more walking but well worth the experience.

They say best location for shopping for Silver, but I would suggest to hit the beaches and forget the shopping. Not my way of spending vacation hours, try new water sports or just enjoy the beauty of nature.
