Totally Disappointed with NCL's Getaway
"As we have enjoyed cruising with NCL for years, we have gained not only Latitude points, but also a savy about ship cleanliness, food quality, show presentations, room stewards, etc. Our most recent trip to the..."Read More

The Getaway is a fantastic ship for 2300 people. The problem is they put 4000 on it... In no particular order: The HVAC system onboard seemed overwhelmed in the common areas and in the cabins it seemed they worked better or worse from day to day. The "atrium" (really just a large hole in the deck between 6 and 7) was the worst, but then again, it was always packed full of people. It was ...

Good: Beautiful Ship. Well appointed. Very clean & nice graphics. This was our 20th cruise. Second on Norwegian. Room Steward was great. Bad: First experience was on the Dawn. was not good but, wanted to try again. Will not be a third time. Embarkation was slow. We were with 3 other couples and stopped at security and two of us had items confiscated. Pair of pliers and a small fan. Did not ...

Decided to try NCL due to price and Free at Sea promotion. I’ve cruised previously with Princess and Royal Caribbean. Unfortunately, NCL paled in comparison. Food quality was good in the main dining room and specialty restaurants. The buffet Food quality and selection was underwhelming. Comedy show at Headliners was entertaining. If you want to see other entertainment, make sure you ...

Chose this ship because of a casino promotion. Had never sailed on NCL before, but wanted to try them. We quickly learned that with the free at sea promotion, you have to plan your dinner reservations out months. As a result, it became very difficult to even use our specialty dining package. The first few days one of the biggest impressions the ship left on us was that the bathrooms were ...

We originally chose this specific ship because of the affordability of the balcony rooms. Ignoring the negative reviews we went ahead and hit the button as a balcony room was a must for us. Pros: The cabin was as good as the pictures showed. It was clean, large, and I seriously wanted to take that showerhead with me. So first impressions were high. We also had an amazing snorkeling excursion in ...

Although I have been on other cruise lines, this was my first experience with Norwegian. After this experience, I will not be back. The entire cruise just seemed like an attempt to nickel and dime as much cash as possible from me. I understand the overpriced drink packages and specialty dining, but to have even an average cruise experience, you had to pay additional. Just as insulting is the ...

This was my first NCL cruise and the “freestyle” method left a little to be desired. Many activities required a cover charge/entry fee so we felt like we were nickeled and dimed throughout the trip. The food and waitstaff had some real highs and lows but overall, it was simply forgettable. Shows were good and certainly worth the time to attend but not standout. Bar staff was ...
