Had a great time on the Getaway. Pluses and minuses about the ship. Loved the waterfront, shows, friendly staff, food was very good with a couple of disappointments. Drink package works well. Fast bar tenders!

Very good, but some disappointments

Teppanyaki

1 out of 5

Entertaining but food dissapointung. We go to these types of restaurants at home. They have great shrimp yum yum sauce but this place had a horrible mustard sauce. Also salad is made out of seaweed, horrible some got sick as humans can’t digest it.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Clean ship. Some nice design festers like the Waterfront. Balconies were small and overlooked the waterfront roof and life boats. Main pool area was way too small. Only one pool plus a kids pool.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Nice Cabin. Smallish balcony

Ship tip

Expect crowds by the pool. Disappoint in Tepperaki restaurant. Fun but sauce was not shrimp yum yum, made from mustard instead. Also seaweed salad is terrible, made some sick. Entertaining but would never eat there again
