Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review by Turtleta2

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

This cruise was fantastic. We had a mid ship mini suite balcony. 10804. Cabin was great. I don’t know that I could go back to cruising with a regular cabin bathroom after this! Full size shower. Double sinks. It was the bomb.

Food was fantastic but service was painfully slow in the main dining rooms 2+ hours for 2 people to have a meal. Often not getting drinks until the appetizers. Regularly finished dessert before coffee finally showed up.

Highly recommend the ultimate resort getaway in Roatan. The place was spectacular! However bring bug stuff as most people got bit.

In Belize, I did the Great Barrier Reef snorkel. It was terrible. Wasted so much time going over how to put on life vest, mask and fins when the boat stopped. Lots wasted again as people got into the water and then they split up into groups. You were required to stay right with your “guide” who stopped frequently to make sure everyone was together. Saw very few fish but lots of beautiful coral. As an experienced diver and snorkel it was boring and nothing to see.

Costa Maya we just did a few shops.

Cozumel was good. Went to Cariloha but man it was a long walk to there. Lol. You do get harassed quite a bit walking along side the shops so be prepared.

Entertainment on the ship was great! Lots of shows.

Straws were a huge problem. They had paper straws but even day 1 lots of bars were out. By the end not a single place had paper straws. Hard to drink frozen beverages with no straw.

Cabin was great the bathroom was fantastic. Balcony is very small

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Fantastic. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Drinks were cheap but weak. Bring insect repellant- most people had bites from something.

Did the Great Barrier Reef snorkel. It was terrible. Don’t waste your time and money. Lots of coral but no fish and highly structured and supervised.

Costa Maya

A few cute shops. Nothing to get excited about.


Lots of shops. Be prepared to walk if you want to hit cariloha!
