Had a very good time as allways on Norwegian. Could take two cruises in a mini suite w/ large balcony for the price of the Haven but the service is exceptional. Looking forward to trying some of the new ships on Norwegian.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Ate almost all meals in specialty restaurants, they of course are very good. The Haven restaurant is surly a step above the specialty restaurants.

Onboard Activities

Game shows are fun, Pool gets crowded, Haven pool is to small,but very private and very well serviced.

Children's Programs

Our grand children were alittle reluctant to go to the kids club at first but loved it after they tried it. Water slides and rope course were welcome fun times for the kids.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Norwegian cruise staff are always the top of the line,evreyone has a smile and warm greeting no matter what time of day or night. We have traveled on several other lines and none compare to the staff on Norwegen ships. the staff in the Haven takes this exceptional service far above even the Norwegen NORM.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This was our fourth trip on the Getaway, It never gets boring and is easy to find all venues. We are always pleased at the cleanliness of all areas of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Nice layout, larger than mini suites, king bed is always better. Plenty of storage space. Balcony is to small very disapointing, bath is large but the tub/shower combo needs to go. Tub is to high to step into if seas get rough,who uses a tub anymore anyway, a nice walkin shower as in the mini suites is much prefered.

Ship tip

Casual cruising is the only way to go, atleast for us. If you prefere to dress up for dinner and have specific dine times this may not be for you. We love it and will probly stick with Norwegian if for the service and nothing else.
