Fun on the Getway

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Took the family (kids are in their teens and early twenties) on a western Caribbean cruise about the Getaway. Booked two balcony cabins that gave us great views. 


Shore excursions were a little expensive but worth it as everyone had a great time.  Complementary food was good with some variety.  Would highly recommend the drink packages as you cant bring drinks on board.   Word of caution, the drink packages only include soda and alcoholic drinks.  Your still paying for bottled water.


Overall great a great time. Happy

Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony seemed smaller than on the other ships we've been on.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Need a little bit better instructions on the disembarkation process. We didnt get out luggage tags until late because we didnt know about them. Also, make sure to tell people that youre off the boat by 10 am. We booked a late flight because we didnt know when we would have our bags and out of customs. Sat at the airport for four hours.
