We had such an amazing experience, in 2014, on the Getaway, that we will be returning this year. The customer service was exceptional, the food was savory and fantastic, the atmosphere fun yet relaxing, and plenty of activities to choose from.
Our friends recently returned from their Getaway cruise, and loved it also!
We highly recommend this cruise, especially to families with school aged children. After being on many other cruiselines, we have found that the freestyle dining, that only NCL offers, is simply impossible to beat. We like to choose what restaurant we want to go to, at whatever time suites us, and to sit together as a family. We don't think we could ever sail with another cruisline again, and be forced to eat at certain time everyday, at the same restaurants, and to be seated with strangers.
The abundance of activities on this ship were also impressive. There is something for every age group,and level of adventure.
The only thing we feel needed improvement, were the number of shows, and the type of shows. We felt the "dance" one was a bit risque for children to watch. We also felt there needed to be more of a variety.
Overall, though, we loved it! So much so, that we will be returning this year!

Obtain information on all dining choices; there are more complimentary options than you think. Also get a list of all activities provided on this ship. We participated in so many, our kids were never bored. We have one teenager and one Elementary school child; they both had a blast.
