We wanted to be on the cruise on our anniversary, so we selected this cruise. We usually go on smaller ships, such as the Pearl, but there were none available from Miami on our dates. We were pleasantly surprised by the Getaway. The staff and crew were fantastically friendly and accommodating. The ship was very upbeat, and we were able to find quiet areas, although it was spring break. Our cabin steward was the best we have ever had, and we’ve been on 25 cruises. We loved the Ice Bar, and enjoyed Fat Cat’s and the Headliner. We liked the Trivia contests, the various competitions, the Tropicana for dinner, and everything about the ship’s set up. Our only two suggestions would be to have more shows in the theater. The same shows kept repeating. Also, the shows in the Atrium were great, but seating was not available. Maybe these should have been in the theater. We did not take any shore excursions. We visited Roatan by taxi, and enjoyed the chocolate factory. The guide there was very knowledgeable. Harvest Key had something for everyone, including giant chess and checkers games and zip lines.
