Review summary

Amazing trip!! This is my second Norwegian Cruise. My first was on the Escape. I have a 3rd booked for November and it will be on the Getaway again. Can’t say enough good things about Norwegian ships and the staff!!

We arrived at the pier around 11am and were through security and check-in within 20 min. We waited about 20 more min due to getting #10 boarding group but the whole process was smooth sailing.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Had 3 amazing dinners in the Tropicana main dining room, O’Sheehans was on point as usual and had a lunch at Taste which was also very good. We did not do any specialty dining but didn’t find a need to pay extra as the main dining rooms were very good. The buffet was typical buffet food you would get on any land based buffet so quality was to be expected, but I did not enjoy the crowds so we stayed away. Not really Norwegians fault but more so just rude people that don’t have any manners and don’t know how to control their children. Noodle Bar was very good but get there early or just have some drinks or play a slot machine while you wait.

Onboard Activities

Pool was nice when you are able to get a spot, usually in the late afternoon. Casino was lots of fun...didn’t leave a millionaire but I never expect to. The Casino staff was super friendly except for one bartender at Bar 21.

Cabin / Stateroom

Great size even for 3 adults. The sofa bed was even comfortable. The shower was a good size compared to what I have heard about other cruise lines. The colors in the room were modern and storage space was surprisingly roomy.

My favorite port by far!! We did snorkeling off of West Bay beach. The second largest barrier reef is located about 100 or so yards from the beach. We took an hour tour for 35$ per person on a small boat with only 6 people.
