We chose the Norweigan Getaway because it was going to the Baltic Capitals. We are a 65 year old couple and we walked a LOT but loved every minute. The cities were beautiful and the tours were great. We used an outside tour company than ... Read more

The itinerary on this cruise was good. Ship was very large so it took a few days to get orientated. Solo cabins are super cute but the housekeeping in this area of the ship needs attention. Solo staff leader was a lot of fun which made ... Read more

We really enjoyed the entertainment on board and the Cruise Director Andre did a wonderful job. Our favorite band was Into the Drift and Million Dollar Quartet was the best show at sea. Our 4th cruise on Norwegian we always get ... Read more

We were on the June 3rd sailing from Copenhagen - 9 night Baltic Capitals. Overall, the cruise was good with the itinerary/ports being the highlight by far. There were some minor issues with the cruise itself which I will touch on here, ... Read more

We chose this cruise to see the Baltic area. We loved all the places we visited and all the excursions we took. We loved all the activities on the ship (even though we could never have attended even half of them). The Mojito tasting in ... Read more

This was my 5th NCL cruise (20+ overall). The ports of call (9 night itinerary) were excellent. The cruise departed and returned from Copenhagen with stops in Warnemunde (Germany), Tallin (Estonia), St Petersburg (Russia), Helsinki ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Getaway Baltic cruise from Copenhagen on June 3, 2017. Our embarkation experience could not have been better. We arrived at the cruise port in Copenhagen at about 10:30 and we were on the ship not long after 11 ... Read more

I wish to express my deepest regret and warn all passengers NOT to take any of the ship's excursions, they are well over priced and not worth anything, there are always transport options when you dock and plenty of good excursions when you ... Read more

First the good--room was very generous for a non-suite, the specialty restaurants (Cagney's, The Bistro, and La Cucina) were as good, or almost as good, as on other cruises, and some of the musical acts were quite good. The house show, ... Read more

We just finished the Northern Capital cruise on the Getaway. The itinerary was fantastic and provided the chance to visit many cities I had not been to before. We traveled with a very large group and stayed in the Haven. We love the ... Read more

I feel this ship is too large for this itinerary. With the exception of service in specialty dining, overall service aboard Getaway compared to previous NCL experiences is lackluster. Our cabin steward was rather disappointing. The ... Read more

Very relaxing spa vacation on the Baltic Sea. I booked a spa mini suite and loved having access to the Thermal Spa. We also were able to get two massages while on board. Would have given five stars for just the spa experience, but ... Read more

We spent two days in Copenhagen pre-cruise making use of the Copenhagen Card which proved good value. We were able to use this card to get the no. 25 bus from Norreport direct to the Terminal at Ocean Kaj. We arrived around 11.15 and were ... Read more

We decided to do our first European cruise seeing the "Baltic Capitals" While the tours themselves were from Excellent to OK, it was the NCL Getaway where the biggest disappointment was. The Ship itself is very nice and BIG and ... Read more

This was a crowded ship, too many people for me. Did not feel like this was an "as you wish" (free style) cruise. I did not wish for waiting at all the dining venues that were complementary, or being sent from one to the ... Read more

The Ship The ship itself is incredibly pretty and well laid out. There was plenty of open deck space and it was never crowded. Becuase this was a cold cruise the pool was heated. The adults-only zone was dead most of the time because ... Read more

The dinner service was terrible. Almost every time I had already eaten my appetizer before my drinks arrived. 2 and half hours for dinner was too long. Food was nothing spectacular. Just average. I was hoping for more ethnic food ... Read more

My husband and I selected this cruise because of the cities visited. It was our first time taking a cruise and we were a little unsure if the 'cruising' aspect would appeal to us. We were not disappointed - the cruise was all that we hoped ... Read more

Overall enjoyed the 9 night Baltic Cruise on Getaway. The ports were all worth seeing with the overnight in St Petersburg the definite highlight. We chose to hire a private local guide for both days for a customised experience and also ... Read more

We went with another couple and enjoyed the ship overall. The stateroom was bigger than we have had before on other ships and bathroom a decent size. Service was good. Some very good entertainment. Some entertainment areas could have been ... Read more

I originally wanted to do a Baltic itinerary because I wanted something I hadn't done before, wanted to make sure work couldn't follow me, and I wanted a non-beach itinerary as I don't do beaches. History and art and culture sounded like a ... Read more

Embarkation in Copenhagen was the easiest I have ever done in any country. Everyone working that day was friendly, efficient and fantastic. We were on the boat before 12pm, which was surprising. Boat overall was very clean, and upon ... Read more

We choose this cruise because of the timing and the ports. We have said on many NCL ships and enjoyed this ship despite the size. It didn't feel crowded and they even had another breakfast option in Moderno offering the same menu as the ... Read more

Nice ship. Itinerary was wonderful. The reason I took this cruise as well as a relatively newer ship. Cabin space small. My balcony was so small, I didn't bother going out there. It was hard to get into the chairs. Not worth the ... Read more

I wanted to cruise on the Getaway and the Transatlantic offered a lot for me, 10 sea days which I love and a sister ship to the Breakaway that I love too! I am familiar with the ship itself, the restaurants and all of the entertainment ... Read more
