Great Cruise but…… by Phillyfann

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

Definitely not a good time to cruise. Covid forced our ship to 45% of capacity which definitely dampened the fun and entertainment. Shows were awful and several were cancelled. Service seemed almost as good as we are used to with Norwegian but I would drop them a star because our Cruise Director was the worst ever. I never saw him until day 5 , I think. Normally a good cruise director is everywhere you look. The staff of this cruise seemed tired and I was definitely disappointed in the entertainment more than anything else. The pool side music was horrible and I heard several people complaining about it. Leon Novembre, was outstanding in Howl at the Moon. He was perhaps the best HaTM performer I’ve ever seen. The rest of the entertainment was just ok. Norwegian needs to pull it together. I’m sure they have more customers that felt similar to me.

Great Getaway on the Getaway by PandCcruisers

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

Pre COVID testing to boarding ship about 1 hr. No waiting for tables in Garden Cafe, elevators or chairs in Atrium. Only disappointment was no Roster in Garden Cafe to meet and entertain guests. For those who have cruised the Getaway before he is the Wakey Wakey Eggs snd Bakey gentleman. Great asset to the NCL brand, disappointing

It was great having the ship at a lower capacity. We loved the cruise, so much that we purchased deposits to return on Norwegian again soon.

Christmas Holiday cruise by alicekarow

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

I gave myself the gift of a Christmas cruise on the Caribbean and I'm very happy with it. Being on the sea with the warm breezes was beautiful and onboard there was always something to do if you wanted an activity. Although, in the future, I think I'd prefer a luxury cruise line. There are lots of upsells and extra fees for things not included - I think (I hope) the luxury cruise lines are truly all-inclusive so even though you pay more up front, the cruise experience is seamless and there's no feeling like you're depriving yourself (of a cappuccino, or access to an exclusive spa section, for instance, or a premium glass of wine) or that you're being sold something else everywhere you go.

Haven not exactly as advertised by Cherieb22

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

I have cruised for 40 years and always felt that you have to be somewhat patient for a number of reasons. However, staff was not quite up to par and many had a horrible attitude.

Great experience by lori395

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

All in all of this was one of the best Cruises I have ever been on. It was disappointing that some of the ports could not be accessed without having an NCL excursion booked. I would definitely go again, but the next time transpacific because it was just too cold in Europe for me.

NCL didn't care about anyone on the Getaway. by Cruiser21617840

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

Great ports, but NCL was so bad, getting to every port LATE and returning us back to the ship 30 minutes early at ALL PORTS.

Enjoyable but Deflating by tsgarver

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

Not visiting 2 ports was extremely disappointing. They cancelled Bermuda and wouldn't go to the Azores (which is why I booked this particular cruise). Their food could have been better, the best part were the specialty restaurants. The shows were weak. We won't be sailing with NCL again.

In Spite of Covid, Still Worth it! by earlydawn

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

Considering the effect covid has had on the world, it was a JOY to be on a cruise again. Some complained about having to wear a mask all the time but overall, I'd do it all again in a heartbeat (our next planned cruise is 3/2022).

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Getaway

Great vacation! Itinerary changes due to weather and port regulations. If you are cruising now be flexible and have a great time. Only suggestion would be cruise the Mediterranean May to October.

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)
