Relaxing Getaway

We choose this cruise because we had not been to most of the stops nor traveled with Norwegian and wanted to give it a try. Aside from the embarkation which was a NIGHTMARE because we waited in lines for over 3 ...

Great 9-day cruise with the exception of embarkation

This was our third time on the Getaway. We didn't chose this cruise because of the ship, it was all about the destinations. After this one, I would be very reluctant to ever book out of New Orleans again. New ...
