Just spent the evening binging on your well written lively review. It is a valuable resource to be sure. Thank you for sharing your impressions with us. It's nice to hear from a cruiser who can enjoy a variety of cruise experiences to be found on different cruise lines and ships. This review has set my mind at ease that booking getaway will not disappoint and offer a change of pace. From the menus and your photos I know my traditional husband would much prefer the seafood offerings at Le Bistro rather than the more contemporary fare at Ocean Blue.

Have taken the plunge today and booked an aft balcony on the Escape for January 2016. Quite excited to learn about new dining aboard, like the dinner show in place of Illusionarium or Cirque Dreams...

Sorry I know this is out of order but I must ask. During embarkation are you able to go see the Studio rooms. I'm thinking about starting to do solos and would like to see what they are like ahead of time. Your photos looked fantastic.

I'm sure that Megacruiser will have better photos but here is a few we took during our tour.

Studio 11511 - 10460361_1620189288213974_599327175245439336_n.jpg?oh=fce58666d28eca909708360891951f0d&oe=5571ECB3&__gda__=1437958617_7e73762a88684a6203626f48c7f2a294

I also know some folk reading this review will be irritated that I ask for people to let me know if they are following; and in fact I have been openly criticised on these boards for this. The reason is simple; when you spend hours day-after-day, sat at home alone, writing and editing photos; a "following" comment is just what you need to remind you that people are actually reading what is posted and find it interesting enough to keep following... I do hope this explanation will at least partially assuage those with any such vexation...

 

Kind regards

I am definitely enjoying reading this! I am subscribed but behind on my reading and am just today catching up. I think your fireworks pics were just wonderful, espeically the second with the stars so visible and focused. Great work on the review! I will be a first time NCL cruiser so this helps so much.

Love the review and the photos!! I'm booked on a Thanksgiving trip on the Escape, and since there isn't a lot to look at for that ship yet, this has been lots of fun:-)

Thanks for an awesome review and sharing so many amazing photos. It was an absolute pleasure to follow along. We are thinking of sailing on the Breakaway. Do you know how similar the Breakaway is to the Getaway? (We usually sail RCL or Celebrity...so not that familiar with NCL, having sailed with NCL only once previously, on a short cruise on the Gem.) I am hoping to show my family your pictures to give them an idea of the Breakaway....

 

Again, fabulous review and photos - thank you!!!!!!! :)

Following! Love the pics and details. I cruised several older NCL ships in the late 70's 80's. Started to cruise RCCL and love the big ships! Booked today on the Getaway after reading this review! Yes why not try something new and different. Lifeisgood! Looking forward to more of your adventure! Question does the Getaway have anything like Park Cafe ? We booked June 6 sailing! Celebrating retirement and my 60th BD

I Just discovered your review of the Getaway today, thank you so much for sharing. I've learned so much about this ship by reading this review and of course enjoyed your wonderful photos. I'm now looking forward to booking a cruise on the Getaway. Thanks again!

Breakaway is very similar, but you could checks out Gambee's review of the Breakaway with lots of pix.

Thanks so much!

This information is amazing!!

We're going on our first cruise ever on the Getaway on 4th April.

So seeing all this is amazing!

My only concern is the lack of veggie options on the menu's.

But I'll just have to have more wine instead!;-)

Thank again. Xx
