Never will take this ship again. Very poorly run and they can’t handle the amount of passengers for this cruise.

The Getaway is perfect - pools, waterslides, adult only area in Spice H2O, and the ropes course and plank are really fun too. Entertainment and food were both excellent. I stayed in a Studio room and loved it! Perfect size and the lounge was an added bonus. The Getaway would be a perfect "first cruise" ship for anyone because it has everything! Loved it!

NCL DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ITS PASSENGERS

Nov 10th, 2019

The ship's staff tried hard but NCL obviously only cares about making money. The infirmary charged ridiculous prices (thousands of dollars for minimal services) and charged your credit card whether you agreed to it or not. The ship lost my suitcase and gave me a claim form which said their liability is a maximum $100. The ship stopped for a few hours in Miami to refuel and take on provisions and every passenger had to get off and go through Customs, which was a minimum three hours in line to get off and back on, leaving no time to do anything in Miami but stand in line. Never again on NCL.

Amazing Adventure

Nov 7th, 2019

The Getaway is a beautiful ship. This was our 2nd time sailing her. The main dining rooms were very good but the specialty dining was excellent. The crew members bend over backwards to help you out with any needs. The shows were great! We had a great time in all of the ports as well. Highly recommended!

I would do it again!

This was such a wonderful cruise! The ports are phenomenal- I just wish we had more time in each. The highlights of the ship (for me) were the thermal spa and the food (taste or savor- same menu and so very good!). I want to do it all again!

Best cruise & ship ever for me! As of now.

Oct 30th, 2019

We had a small group of 26 people, not all hung at together all the time...that was okay. This by far, and as of now, was my favorite ship and cruise.

They need to improve the communication to passengers. I’ve been on a lot of cruises so we figured things out, but this boat could do a lot to make the trip more fun. It was freezing cold and the only smoking room was outside. My impression is that the staffs job is to sell you stuff you don’t need. Felt really pressured to spend which wasn’t much fun

We were in a Haven suite which was outstanding. The excursions were crowded and the food in the rest of the ship underwhelming to poor.

Oct 23rd, 2019

The Haven was amazing. The staff made EVERY aspect of the cruise more enjoyable and stress free. So I think we would have had a different experience if we were in not in a suite.
