Review summary

We loved the NCL Getaway and the friendly, kind staff! This is a LARGE ship, and thus there are plenty of things to do, especially during the days at sea such as the casino, trivia games, and shows...we loved the food/meal options, and tried them all. The excursions were a bit pricey, but very, very good!

Ship Quality

Being a relatively newer ship, and the largest we've been on, provided many restrooms, places to mingle and hang-out.

Cabin / Stateroom

Small but efficient staterrom was quiet, dark at night when we slept, and beds/pillows were comfortable.

Try the O'Sheehans bar and grill for your complimetary meals, even for breakfast!
