Fantastic cruise by Dansteph

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

Overall a fantastic cruise. Dealing port changes and Covid changes is overwhelming. I'd suggest adding yourself to several cruise sites to stay up on changes as it's easy to miss things relying on email notifiactions. We lost the port in Turkey due to issues with customs and they added another Greek port. Vorso. It wasn't a great port but it wasn't NCL fault. I would have rather had them make that a sea day but I stayed on the ship so it kind of was. lol Except for the scrap metal unloading going on in the next pier. (LOUD)

Fantastic cruise in the Mediterranean! by drtlamb

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

This was out first big ship cruise, having only done a river cruise in the past. The river cruise was awesome, but this cruise was, too. I did not expect my husband to care for the experience and he loved it! We took over 2,000 pictures during the cruise, cannot wait for the prints to arrive next week.

Wonderful Greece by flakeyscruiser

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

The cruise was terrific from start to finish even with Covid protocols before getting onboard. The after cruise hotel in Rome was a very big disappointment and an unpleasant experience. First of all was the inability of the staff to check in guests from the ship. Mass confusion and no available rooms made everyone unhappy. I feel since they knew exactly when the ship passengers were arriving a bit of planning would have alleviated a lot of issues. The location of the hotel is a block away from many street sleeping homeless people. My wife and I came across a man defecating on the side walk less than a block from the front door. The staff were inattentive to guests requests. The morning we left , at 615 am, there was no NCL person to make sure the connection was smooth. No attempt by staff to deal with many requests for a simple cup of coffee. The Piram Hotel should be avoided. NCL should do a better job of securing hotels for their cruise guests.

Smooth & Easy by adverb23

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Getaway / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

We 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!!!

Fabulous! by diannalea

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Getaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We very much enjoyed the mix of relaxation and fun. My only suggestion would be to spend maybe two days in each port with one sea day in between. I guess we need a longer cruise though.

Not a Happy Cruise by jamfau

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Getaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We never felt welcome onboard by most of the staff. There seems to be a morale issue within the staff. Most did not smile. Terrible embarkation. We will NOT be returning to the NCL Getaway. Ports were not interesting.

Great cruise and great benefitrs by booking with AA by jimc671

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Getaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I had visited most of these ports on a Carnival ship before and the Norweigen ship was a definite upgrade. Booking it through American Airlines gave me bonuses (unlimited drinks, 4 hours internet, 3 specialty meals, $50 credit on each tour booked and bonus miles) which were the deciding factors on booking this cruise.

We enjoyed our first Norwegian cruise and would cruise with them again. We enjoyed the ability to dine whenever you wanted and dress up or not dress up (your choice). by agbrandon

We enjoyed our first Norwegian cruise. We especially like being able to dine whenever we wanted and having the choice to dress up, or not dress up.
