The NCL Getaway is a massive ship.  With a casino, two dance clubs, a movie theater, twelve restaurants, and probably twice the number of bars, it was great.  we either danced, shopped, set by the pool, or found a nice couch and drank mojito's while looking out at great sunsets and the occasional sunrise.  The stewards seemed to always be near keeping our rooms clean or offering extra services.  The wait staff and crew we're super.  Every type of food you wanted was available.  We had four ports we called on and each was special in their own way.


Only downside is that NCL was not very helpful in getting us to excursions we set up on our own and the spa staff ruined the relaxing massage by trying to push the spa products.


Last item for Cruisers is to be sure to read all the fine print and don't forget21 days prior is the cut off to submit your on board credit vouchers.  I feel if your entitled to it, should automatically submit it.

Ship Tip

Get your walking shoes on and explore the 17 floors and close to 1000' length. Beautiful ship....
