C'mon man !!

Dec 9th, 2018

What are you thinking ? Having the most popular shows in a small atrium ? No seating for all ? You couldn't even see the shows if you were in the back. Why weren't these shows in a theater for all to watch ? Staff in the main dining were over worked. Service was subpar. Staff in the cigar bar area was outstanding. Very prompt. Loved the disembarkation carrying my own bags.

Very Disappointing

Freestyle dining does not promote excellence in service, or a convenient flow to entertainment. I never saw an attendant in a public restroom, and it was the first time of 22 cruises that we’ve experienced toilets that continually would not flush.

Had a good time!! Wish the ship was cleaner. Food was excellent in all the restaurants. Buffet needs to add more variety. Entertainment was above average.

Very Wonderful, Entertaining and Fulfilled Caribbean Cruise

The only problem with the Cruise is the space of the Cabin. We are definitely going on another cruise in 2019 and we will be going on Norwegian Cruise Line. We are looking at Southern Carribean. We will just be picking outer own Cabins.

Fantastic ship! Sailed Nov 11th..food was great, stateroom was great, cabin steward was awesome, staff and cruise director, Mandy, were all awesome!! The only complaint and word of advice would be to check your account DAILY...we were charged twice for our photos that we purchased and for a bunch of drinks that should have fallen under our unlimited drink package...so be watchful of that! If you don't catch it, neither will they, and I have a feeling they are making tons of extra money off of the ones that don't check!!! Otherwise...no other complaints!! The atrium bartenders were FANTASTIC!!!!! Can't wait for our next cruise!

Mediocre Experience

I rate NCL in the same category as Carnival. Cheap, Low Class, obnoxious, rude clientele. I will never cruise NCL again.

Ugly ship and poor service.

Dec 4th, 2018

Very disappointed. Staff was unfriendly and sometime rude. If you’re a smoker, you will be accommodated with a smoking cage beside the main pool, a small area on deck 8 and another small area on deck 16. There is also smoking in the casino IF you are playing. Food was ok but not great. If you call for room service, be prepared for a long wait. When the ship docks EVERYTHING shuts down including the bars. They force you to leave the ship.

We sailed on Getaway Nov 11, 2018. It was a good experience overall. Pool deck always crowded, rarely chairs available on sea days. Buffet was great. Different theme every evening for dinner. Staff seemed friendly, cabin steward was great. Our cabin (13800) was horrible. It was 5 decks above a bar and outdoor smoking area. A lot of noise and smoke and also had loud noise coming from above from 7p-11p every night. All port stops were good. (St thomas, tortola, nassau). St thomas is very good about having plenty of open air trolleys available at port. You can just tell someone where you want to go, they direct you to a trolley. Being our 6th cruise over several years, it seems cruiselines have figured out how to make more profit while you're on board. So many more activities have a charge than what it used to be 5-6 years ago. Still prefer a smaller ship to the 4k+ passenger ships.

Just got off the ship yesterday and had a wonderful time. We had a 2 BR suite and the service was great. Emmanuel our steward was amazing and such a hard worker. Hanno did a great job as concierge. There were only 2 bumps in the road for this trip. Our room, 16108, had a window with a seal broken. This was the large picture window in the master bath which provides spectacular views. We were issued credit by NCL. The second was the poor service at La Cucina. We were able to make a reservation at another restaurant for later in the week to make up for our specialty dining. Otherwise all the other restaurants were top notch. Definitely see the Cirque show. Everyone was happy and pleasant. We can't wait for the next Haven cruise!!!
