7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 18, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Getaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9258
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Our favorite part was everything on the ship itself. Our room was great, the entertainment was Awesome, the food was Fabulous at all the restaurants and the sailing was Excellent. However, Rotan, Honduras and Belize City, Belize was a huge disappointment. What you see on the "Feed the Kids" or "Help the Animals" commercials we didn't want to see that when we spend over $2,500 on a vacation. We were so disappointed we didn't get off the ship at Costa Maya as we couldn't take another let down!!  We did enjoy Conzumel as we even found the resort we want to stay at when we return for a week long vacation in a few months. 


Please note: the locals we meet in Rotan were super nice and friendly. 


We will continue to cruise with Norwegian as we have never had any problems with them. We J ust would NEVER visit those islands again!!!

Enjoy it all!!! The Getaway has a lot to offer! Only wished they had the Jimmy Buffet Margeritaville open while we were on the cruise ship.
