Norwegian Cruise Lines Getaway
Your Wedding TV sets sail for a wonderful week of R & R & R: Rest, Relaxation AND Rum!
We recently returned from a fantastic 7 Night Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Norwegian Cruise Lines Getaway and we are ready to go again! As one of the fellow cruisers in our party commented; “The biggest decision I had to make each day, was whether to place my chair in the sun or the shade!” When you are as busy as we are, this floating mega-vacation was just what we needed and NCL’s Getaway was the perfect ship!
BON VOYAGE! We spent a fun night in South Florida and boarded the ship early on Saturday. From the moment we embarked on the beautifully designed Miami-inspired Getaway, we were greeted with happy, smiling staff directing us to the delicious welcome aboard buffet – VACATION OFFICIALLY IN PROGRESS!
NCL’s Getaway is their newest ship and one of the largest cruise ships we have experienced. The first thing you will notice, besides the modern upscale design, clean lines and limitless things to do in every corner of this magnificent ship is how spotless everything is, from the restaurants to the staterooms.
With the first couple of days at sea, we were able to unwind and enjoy lots of the amenities this ship has to offer. There are 28 dining options with so many different choices. The food was delicious and there was a huge variety in the buffet as well as various different restaurants, including Cagney’s Steakhouse and Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian. You will run out of time before you run out of places to eat on this ship! There was even Carlos’ Bake Shop by star of the popular TLC television series “Cake Boss!
Other than enjoying the beautiful ocean breezes, variety of pool options and fun daily activities, we truly enjoyed the entertainment on board this ship. Our favorite was the full production of the Broadway show, Legally Blonde! The venue was large, sets were so creative and the acting, singing and dancing were impeccable – what a fun show!
On our way to St. Marteen, St. Thomas and Bahamas for shopping, sightseeing and some relaxing on the beach, NOT SURE WHICH WAS BLUER – THE OCEAN OR THE SKY?
Our 7 day cruise on Norwegian Cruise Lines literally flew by and we enjoyed our last magical sunset of this trip. It was truly one of our best vacations ever and we can’t wait for the next one!
