Close to a fiasco

We cruise NCL regularly and chose the Eastern Cariben cruise because it was one itinerary we have not sailed and my friend wanted to see St. Thomas. This cruise almost started off with a bang when a bomb scare was called in at the Miami port. On our way to San Juan, we learned they had just had a 6.2 eaerthquake and when we arrived, everything was closed except Walgreens where we bought tee ...

Here's the good: The ship was great, I liked the layout, lots to do. We did our own excursions on land, but we liked all the ports; especially the variety - all 4 days were different. NCL's private caye was better than expected; just go knowing it will be a relaxing easy going day, and you will enjoy your time there. The margharita at the land shark rank one of the best I've ever had. ...

This was my second cruise experience. My review of this ship will be in comparison with our prior cruise with Royal Caribbean. First, the ship was overrun with children. Children at bars, shows, pools, just about everywhere. The adult pool was supposed to be kid free until about 5 pm, and the staff did a good job enforcing it. However, some of the hot tubs around the pool were family friendly ...

We have done Disney Cruise Line (Dream) in the past and I had wonderful experience. It made we want to do more cruises with my kids. The value of Norwegian Getaway 7 day eastern Caribbean seemed good. However, it was just ok and a bit disappointing. Ship: Seemed nice. Very clean for the most part. Felt spacious. Cabin: Spa Balcony. Smallish. I wish there was a better option for ...

This was my first cruise with Norweigan, and I am never going back. Starting with embarkation, the process was painful and confusing. It took several hours longer than expected and when we got on, every part of the ship was already packed with people. During the safety briefing, we were screamed at to shut up and there was broken glass on the floor. There was also broken glass on my parents deck ...

Normally we cruise Carnival and we'll go back to them. The Steakhouse, Cagney's was great and we enjoyed the buffet but we we're surprised by all of the extra charges , the Ice Bar, the Salt room and I had to purchase 3 unlimited Arcade packages even though my granddaughter was the only one to use it, I was surprised to find out that she could only use a few of the games with the package, this was ...

A family member had gone on the sister ship ,Breakaway last year and had a wonderful experience. My husband and I went on the Getaway this year with those family members and found it to be overcrowded. The Atrium is where many activities are held but is not large enough for the crowds that show up. There are not enough chairs so people crowd and squish around the atrium and it makes it very ...

I had never been on NCL and wanted to experience freestyle. I was disappointed to find out I could not change my specialty dining package, after making attempts to change before boarding, once on board NCL would not accommodate my request. The cruise wasn't all bad, I do like the food and anytime dining. The room was small but cozy, need at least one chair. The bathroom shower was the best, room ...

This is our 12th cruise and we chose Getaway because the dates fit in nicely with vacation tume that our friends were taking. We were yet to have traveled to the Eastern Carribean, after coming off the Escape last Feb. we were very excited about Norwegian as we had a ball on that ship. Embarkation was the smoothest of any ship I have been on. Very organized and boarding was on time, in fact ...

Great service. Great restaurants . However not enough time giving to explore the ports. We were given limited time to spend at the Bahamas. We spent and large amount of money to go to the Atlantis resort. We were given only 4 1/2 hours time to spend.People do not waste your time or money on the half day aqua adventure at the waterpark. Another thing I didn’t like on ship was that there was no ...
