7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 18, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9194
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Argumentative staff, constant nickel & dime-ing, and par food at best. We went on NCL because it was a great line for "foodies" like me. I couldn't be more wrong. There were highlights, but they were few & far between.


The embarkation/disembarkation was a NIGHTMARE. The rooms had little a/c and took 2 1/2 hours from our arrival time to set foot on the ship. Very disorganized.


We were spoiled by Disney Cruise Line, so any future cruises will be through them. This is our first and last cruise through NCL.

Small for a "Mini-Suite", no bells & whistles that warranted the extra money.

Ship Tip

Stick with the Specialty Dining as much as possible. Run far, far away from the main dining rooms.
