Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review to Europe - Mediterranean
Review summaryWe purchased the Vibe to make sure we didn't have to fight for a lounge chair everyday. The Vibe is a private area where only a select number of people are allowed access for lounge chairs and the bartenders know you by name. It was nice, but after paying nearly an additional $500 for this they should have a separate pool for Vibe members. Also, they don't provide food. You can pay additional for food which is kinda crazy since we already paid close to $500 to be up there or you can walk down to the buffet and bring it back up for free. Drinks were great and bar staff very friendly. It didn't make sense you weren't allowed to sit at the bar, but in other places you were. They also had cabanas at the Vibe which seemed to be a waste cause I never saw anyone go in one probably because it was another additional fee. Overall the Vibe is a good thing if you want a little privacy and a little quieter, but it would be way better with it's own pool and it's own food service The ship was only at about 60% because of Covid so with less people that made it nice. The Buffet was staffed with lots of people to serve you which was different, but worked out okay. One complaint was you had to book excursions on the ship and weren't allowed to go off on your own which to me just seemed like an additional money maker for the cruise line. They charged more than booking on your own even with the excursion "discounts" they gave. You had to be with a guide off the ship supposedly for Covid although I don't see how they would make a difference. All in all I will definitely be cruising again before too long. It was a great time so get out there and do it!!!
