  1. Join the Bird for a 7-day adventure on the beautiful Norwegian Getaway to the Western Caribbean from Miami. After serving as the Bud Light Hotel for the Superbowl from January 30, 2014 to February 3, 2014, we were on the inaugural voyage of the Getaway out of Miami to the Eastern Caribbean. This will be our third voyage on the Getaway. Sun - Miami, Florida Mon - At Sea Tue - Roatan, Honduras Wed - Harvest Caye, Belize Thu - Costa Maya, Mexico Fri - Cozumel, Mexico Sat - At Sea Sun - Miami, Florida
  2. Taking this trip 'with the girls' for a week of fun, sun, laughs & adventures! Hope to see you there.
  3. We sailed on the Norwegian Escape earlier this year and even though we enjoyed the experience, we felt the atrium and areas near the casino reeked of cigarette smoke the entire trip, even when the casino was closed and ship was in port. The smell just lingered and it was bad enough that we avoided the area. We are now considering booking the Norwegian Getaway. For those who've cruised on Getaway, what was your experience like related to the cigarette smoke around the casino area? Was it bad/Did it linger or was it not really noticeable? Thanks in advance for sharing your opinions.

    Norwegian Getaway

    What is like? Is it nicer than Carnival Dream? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. I started my blog this year, just a hobby, but we are having fun with it :). Our cruise to the Caribbean was our ‘first’ post. The ship is one of our favorites and the experience of being in the special area ‘the haven’ was quite special. https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/ Please let me know if I can answer any questions and thanks for sharing with us!!

    Getaway or Bliss

    Travelling December 2018, with family (all 6 Adults -Ages 24-55), either itinerary doesn't matter for us. Looking to book either 7 Day Western on the Getaway or 7 Day Eastern on the Bliss. Wondering which Ship would be best?? (FYI - we have done the Epic and loved it.)
  8. Thanks in advance! My husband and I have only sailed Carnival. I'm not opposed to trying something new which has led me to my questions. We have friends scheduling a cruise on the Norwegian Getaway. Because I am not used to it, the Norwegian website doesn't seem as user friendly. Can someone give me their honest opinion at the differences? Not service, I get that is so very subjective. I want to know more about things such as reservations & fees? I've read several reviews that keep mentioning making their reservations and lots of charges with Norwegian. If someone has sailed both lines can I please have some honest opinions. I'm pretty low maintenance. We usually eat in the MDR each night and go to shows but we've never had to be specific with reservations. Thanks for any responses! Vicki
  9. Hello, Is it worth spending the additional $200 for the thermal spa access on the NCL getaway? I would appreciate the feedback. Thank you!
  10. Hi. Me and my bf are going on a cruise in Sept, but we cant decide which ship/itinerary to choose, so we hoped that you experienced cruisers could help us. The itinerary for the Sun is: Great Stirup Cay, Havana, Harvest Cay and Costa Maya. For the Getaway its: Roatan, Harvest Cay, Costa Maya and Conzumel. The only reason we really consider the Norwegian Sun is because of Havana, Cuba, we've always wanted to go there. The Getaway looks like a ship with a lot more going on (activity wize), because its bigger, but bigger isnt always better, I've heard We like to relax in the pool, sipping drinks, party, with it not being too crowded in the pool all the time. I loved Freedom of the seas, Norwegian Escape was a great ship, but I didnt like it as much cause of the lack of pool areas and entertainment around it. So if any of you kind people have ay tips/pointers that could help us decide, that would be awesome. Pricing is about the same for both. Thanks!
  11. Still traveling home from our cruise, but I wanted to start my trip report thread and add some quick comments while the memories are still fresh in my mind. I will have many photos to add once I get home and can upload them to an online location. I also saved every scrap of paper they gave us (i.e., dailies, letters, disembarkation instructions), which I will scan and upload. Overall thoughts: The Haven is everything they advertise and more. The service we received was just incredible. The food in the restaurant is as good or better than any of the specialties, the bartenders are world-class mixologists, and the boarding/disembarking perks are a huge plus. It truly felt we were cruising on a private yacht, even though we were on a mega-ship. I will post more once I get through security at MIA.
  12. Hi, How good is the Premium Internet on the NCL Getaway? Thank you :D

    Breakaway vs Getaway

    What are the differences between the two ships? I can't seem to find anything about them being different? Any differences at all? We were already on Getaway, and we are not so sure about trying the Breakaway since it will be so similar. We like to switch it up a bit. Thank you!!!

    What is the sauna set up on the Breakaway? Free? Men/Women only? Co-Ed? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Casino Getaway Cruise

    We have just gotten our first Casino Getaway Cruise. I have found information on the Ultra Casino cruises but not the Getaway Cruise. Can anyone help? Are they similar?

    Where is the Getaway

    Hopefully away from Michael.
  19. Yes I know bad habit. Just wondering if there is at least one bar outside where you can smoke and have a beer? Close to a bathroom would be a bonus! Thanks

    Norwegian gem

    we was on the May sailing from New York for the cruise, 26th may. Boat not as pretty as other ships we have been on , cost cutting ship, food was great in the speciality dining, but apart from that the buffets not that great, sad to see so much food being wasted, when people round the world starving, just take a little and go up,again if you want more , entertainment well seen better , the dancers were brilliant, bingo lady drove me up the wall,, why are they so obsessed with how long you have been married, Def not for me this cruise company, sitting on the balcony well we had to come in with the smell of people smoking wacky Baccy and listening to loud music , so ncl you are not for me,

    Norwegian Fees?

    Hi. Does Norwegian charge additional fees, similar to a travel agent, if I call the Norwegian number and book with them? Thanks!

    Starbucks on Norwegian

    Does anyone know if you can use Starbucks gift cards at the Starbucks on the Bliss??
  23. I am looking at booking the Norwegian Getaway in a family mini suite, and i was wondering if any on this board have stayed in one before....do they have a bath tub? My new son was born 5 days ago and we're already planning his first cruise (I was on the SS Norway at 6 weeks old - he'll have to wait until 6 months for his!) and it would be easier to bring him and my then 3 year old on a cruise if there was a tub. Otherwise it pretty much looks like the mini suite and balcony are pretty similar, but if any other differences feel free to shout in my direction!

    Norwegian Escape

    Weird question : Will NCL Escape punch hole in cruise card ? Shopping for the right landyard.
