The Great Getaway: Our hosted cruise on The Norwegian Getaway! Part 1

I just returned from our 2nd Annual hosted cruise aboard the Norwegian Getaway! It was amazing! The Getaway has something for everyone! Come "aboard" as I take you through our cruise!

We started out on our adventure from Port Miami. If you haven't been it is very easy to get around and everyone is very helpful! Check out the view from our balcony! Here's a tip: get a balcony room if you can! You room will feel so much bigger and there is nothing like listening to the ocean at night and catching the view! 

Once we checked out our rooms we went to explore! Did I forget to mention my husband and were sans kids? Our 4 little travelers stayed home for this trip. Sorry kids! The Getaway has so much onboard to do that you could never get bored! My 1st spot to hit up was The Mandara Spa!

The Mandara Spa is fantastic! There are literally hundreds of treatments available. They have different classes and offerings daily. You can also purchase the Thermal Spa Package for $199.00 trust me it is worth it! With the package you can use the Thermal Spa Suite unlimited times during your cruise. I practically moved into the aromatherapy sauna! It's a great place to relax and rest!

If your into a little more action than a spa, the Getaway has that too. I have to say that I did not personally try out the water slides, but my husband did and he loved them! 

While our kids weren't there to enjoy the kids spaces, several of our fellow agents and clients had kids onboard who loved the water areas! They have daily activities for the kids and family times where you can all be together having fun. The kids ended their cruise with their own family circus!

If you are really looking for adventure then you have to check out the rock climbing wall and ropes course! Lookout you can walk the plank!

Too bad I forgot my tennis shoes... Next time!!

I haven't even showed you half of what is available to do onboard! Let alone excursions! But that will be part 2. Let's talk cruise food! I won't lie there is food everywhere! There's also Pulse fitness center to work off all of the yummy food! We had the signature dining package that allowed us to eat 4 times at the signature dining locations on board. We chose reservations at Cagney's Steakhouse (my favorite), Moderno (brazillian steakhouse), Teppanyaki (Jappanese Steakhouse) and La Cucina. When not dining at a signature location there are many other options available. The buffet on deck 15 is available for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late snacks as well as the Tropicana Room, Taste, Savor and more. 24 hour room service is available as well.

As you can see there's no lack of food and we didn't find anything we didn't like! They are very good about working with you on food allergies as well! 

 

This is where I will leave you for now! In part 2 we will explore our ports of call and excursions!
