I paid several hundred dollars to upgrade to a club balcony suite when I should have simply upgraded to a balcony cabin. I thought, and the "consultant" confirmed, that the cabin was larger, nicer, and came with many amenities. Turns out the cabin is the same size, only the bathroom is a bit larger, and the balcony is essentially the same size. Also watch out, they include the balcony in the cabin size, so a 239sf cabin with a 32 sf balcony is really a 207 sf cabin. The best amenity, the ability to make specialty restaurant reservations in advance, is not available on this cruise, yet I was told at booking that it was! Most of the other amenities are actually available on all/most other categories, such as free room service breakfast! And no allowance, not even a shipboard credit, for the lack of promised amenities. Also, no allowance for the inability to get off the ship at two ports unless on an excursion - NCL added several VERY EXPENSIVE excursions instead! I am dreading the actual cruise and all the charges for things that are supposedly included, since my $1,000" cruise is over $3,000 and counting. I will update the review after the cruise. Pro tip: the hefty service charge - on top of charges for each individual item - is not compulsory, so do not pay in advance and have them remove it from your final bill.

Loved the 27 dining choices,especially the Shanghai Noodle bar and O'Sheehan's Irish pub among the Complimentary dining restaurants. The Speciality dining is fantastic; I highly recommend Wasabi Sushi, Teppanyaki, La Cucina, Le Bistro and Ocean Blue. The highlight of this ship are the shows- sizzling 'Burn the floor' & 'Million Dollar Quartet' leave you wanting more... Dont miss the fastest waterslides at sea & the challenging ropes course.

I preferred the Epic and the Escape because the staff on the getaway was less friendly: didn’t always notice you, let go some people witouth washing their hands at the entrance of the buffet, etc. Also, western carrinean stops where less interesting then the eastern ones according to me. Had a perfect inside cabin bought with a beverage package

Everything was pretty much perfect. Except the food, which was good but not outstanding. The pool deck is slippery. The entertainment is excellent...we were not bored at all, which we sometimes are aboard certain ships.

I sailed on the Getaway out of New Orleans and it was a good trip. The food was good at the specialty restaurants and the ship was fun. The ship and cabin were good. This rating is based upon the excursions and that I expected NCL to do better relative to the excursions that they contracted for and sell! The ports visited left a lot to be desired! In the two Mexico ports the people were constantly, I mean non-stop chatter, about how great they were and why you should be tipping them. In Cancun, I went to a beach and snorkel trip. The local Mexican organizers demanded that we walk single file down the beach to the chairs. They demanded that we wait for then to take pictures of everyone to try to sell you late. Then came the overbearing sales pitches. NCL SHOULD put a stop to this over bearing hard push for money by the locals! I went diving in Honduras. It was fabulous! They were great! I was happy to tip and purchase t shirts. The excursion was well worth doing again. The diving in the Mexican port is NOT a good thing to do. As a matter of fact I would rate it as down right dangerous! The equipment is old, out dated and corroded! The staff is nothing but a bunch of green inexperienced kids that like to yell and scream at people that have been diving for many more years than the kids have been alive. The boat operators are down right dangerous and unsafe! I have a US Coast Guard Masters License. I have run dive boats in CA for hire. I would NEVER have 12 divers grab a rope on the side of a 25' boat in rough seas while the engine is still in gear and/or running! This was just plain unsafe! Multiple people sat out the second dive rather than take the risk again! Do NOT do it !
