Norwegian Getaway or Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Sea

Jump to last reply

My husband and I want to take our 3 adult children on a cruise (mid 20-35). We have a very small window next January. We have narrowed it down (based on itinerary) to either the Norwegian Getaway or Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas. We have only been on two cruises and both were around 2500 people on Celebrity. So, the Getaway is huge and the Jewel fairly small. The Getaway is newer and the Jewel is getting upgraded later next year. My husband thinks that the water slides/pools on the Getaway will make all the difference. I am concerned about the number of people on the Getaway. I actually prefer the itinerary for the Jewel, but we think getting the right ship is more important. I would love to hear what you think about the two cruise lines, large versus small ship size, etc. Thanks for your input!
