We picked this cruise first of all because it was the date we wanted to sail but foremost was that we had such a great time on the Norwegian Spirit in the Mediterranean last September. Even though the Getaway is a newer ship we did not ... Read more

We bought this cruise as a package deal having seen it advertised in a newspaper and seemingly a good buy. We had never been on a cruise before and were going to celebrate a significant birthday with close friends. So a little bit ... Read more

We had hope to see the fall colors of the north east and visit the communities in Maine and Canada. The stops and the ports and visiting the ports experience was excellent. We planned and did our own tours, which were not from the ship but ... Read more

Having wanted to see the art of St. Petersburg for years, I jumped at the chance when this cruise went on sale. This was an early 50th anniversary cruise, and it was great. The weather was unusually warm, sunny, and gorgeous. We love ... Read more

We did the cruise & land package a couple of years ago so this time we decided on the 'abbreviated' cruise from Seattle with the chance of seeing Glacier Bay which was canceled last time. Embarkation & disembarkation went well. ... Read more

We sailed on Breakaway 3 months after it launched, and returned to be very disappointed this last cruise. Actually, we really enjoyed our first cruise on the Breakaway and thought it really was a good value, but all has changed. We also ... Read more

Embarkation in Boston was very easy. Arrived at the port at 10:15. Was through check in and in the holding area by 10:30. Staff at port directing cruisers to the appropriate holding areas seemed a bit overwhelmed. Perhaps they could ... Read more

This was only the second cruise that I had been on but it was my wife's third. We were on the cruise because it was to celebrate my 70th birthday. Birthdays with a zero on the end are always special and you need to do something that you ... Read more

We chose this cruise, because of the cities we could visit, [ lot easier and cheaper than half a dozen city breaks!] We visited Copenhagen, Berlin, Tallin, Saint Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm. We took the ships organised tours at ... Read more

We sailed Norwegian previously and found the line to have excellent service and excellent staff. Our cabin was great and the food was awesome (the buffett is still a buffett; but even the food there wasn't bad). The specialty restaurants ... Read more

Basically this was a quickie 4 day "booze" cruise. The ship was in great shape, clean and shinny. Embarkation check-in took forever. I finally took out my book and read so then it went a little faster. To me the great plus ... Read more

NCL is at the bottom of the list. I have been on over 50 cruises all over the world and the latest on the NCL Escape was the worst. There is absolutely no class attached to this cruise line! Detailed issues from an often cruiser: 1-Up ... Read more
