  3. Norwegian Getaway
This was my fifth cruise, first time on Norwegian. The ports of call for this cruise were great. Where I was disappointed was the food. The restaurants were below average for a cruise ship, good but far from great. The buffet was disappointing. It was overcrowded at all times. The more popular meals such as the pasta bar always had long lines with poor selection. The bread was stale on several occasions. I talked to several other couples that cruise frequently and they felt the cruise was average as well. The service was good but the staff was just not as friendly as other cruise lines. Nothing bad but nothing great. Same with the shows. There were a couple that were great but the rest were less than average. It felt like the cruise was catering towards kids so they figured they could let down on the food and service. It was just missing that little bit extra.

Good cruise but far from the best
