Thanks for your detailed review of the Getaway. Your review is pretty consistent with what I've been reading online which is very crowded and loud. We are first time cruisers traveling with two teenagers ages 16 & 17. We will be going during a school vacation so I'm worried about the crowding that I observed in your pictures. I'm thinking that maybe we should consider another ship.

lgreen: sadly, I think most ships would be crowded during any school vacations. I know, because I usually only travel at either Christmas or March Break as my holidays follow the (Canadian) school calendar.
This was an exception, and we honestly thought early June there would not be so many kids as they are still in school. We didn't realize that in many of the southern states, school ends in May, therefore the ship was FULL of kids.
That being said, if you're traveling with teens, they would probably LOVE Getaway, or any Carnival or Royal Caribbean ship who all have lots for kids and teens to do.

I was on the Breakaway and was somewhat disappointed with the layout of the ship. The most annoying was the activities in the atrium, crowding and noise levels made visiting the adjacent bar unbearable.I would like to know how many ship architects actually have spent time on their creations.
