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

We chose this cruise for the opportunity to see San Francisco and Vancouver with extra days of travel at both ends of an Alaskan cruise and were not disappointed. The Sun is a beautiful yet small ship with a great crew and staff. As ... Read more

The NCL Sun is fighting the aging of the seas quite well. Public areas are kept up to high standards, though some might consider them dated. Cabins, quite the opposite. The dating shows, and only major remodeling will fix some of the ... Read more

We joined the ship at San Francisco for the Alaska cruise and in spite of having an arrival at the pier time we had to queue for about forty five minutes outside the terminal. Being a hot day I was not too happy about this. Once inside the ... Read more

We decided to take this cruise, because we have never been on a TA, and this would be perfect for us, since we wanted to go and visit family in Germany and Copenhagen is just a 45 min flight away. We loved the Breakaway and being that ... Read more

Of 16 days on the Norwegian Getaway’s repositioning cruise from Miami to Copenhagen, 12 were at sea. Four of five ports en route were canceled or grievously abbreviated. On departure from Miami, there were warnings of bad weather ... Read more

This was a nightmare cruise from start to finish. Long lines at embarkation and NCL eliminated priority for Gold Members...only platinum and platinum plus. We entered our cabin to find blood stains on our duvet and old, yellowed, pilled ... Read more

We took the Getaway on April 30th from Miami to Copenhagen and were very disappointed! The name of this ship should be Stayaway instead of Getaway. The design of the ship was not adequate for 4000 passengers. The lines for the main dining ... Read more

This cruise was HORRIBLE. NCL is focused only on profits and not customer experience. Once they have your money they ignore you. To summarize A: we were to stop at 5 European ports before our arrival in Copennhagen, we only made 1 ... Read more

When searching for a cruise, this one showed up in an email with a price that couldn't be passed up. The cruise experience, along with the visits to places we might not otherwise see, was a big positive. The accommodations, public spaces, ... Read more

First cruise with Norwegian cruise Line. We have been on 40 cruises with different cruise Lines.This was an awful crossing on a crowded ship. Could be better if the pool area had a roof, the weather is often bad crossing the ocean from USA ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we live just south of Tampa and had yet to use this port since moving down here five years ago. We love transatlantic cruises and this was our first time doing it eastbound. The bonus for us was that the Jade ... Read more

I booked this trip with the hopes of seeing Europe for the first time while being able to tackle the time changes more gracefully on a daily basis rather than in one blow via flight. I also have been on quite a few cruises (one Norwegian ... Read more

There were issues on this cruise due to weather and equipment failure. Brest France was a joke. NCl had never been there before and will not go back. The "Gang Plank" that so many people conplained about belongs to the port, ... Read more

This was our first TA cruise. 6 days at sea turned out to be 10. Porta Delgada was cancelled due to high winds, major disaster with disembarkation/embarkation in Brest (talk about walking the plank, that's what literally happened). ... Read more

One does not notice how crowded some of the largest ships in the NCL fleet, like the Getaway, can become until you find yourself in a transatlantic cruise Miami to Copenhagen (April-May) and the expected port stops don’t happen ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of being a Transatlantic with ports in the Azores, France, England, Belgium. This signage found in the Studio Cabin area sums up the 16-day Transatlantic cruise out of Miami on April 30th. Kind of a ... Read more

This was our very 1st cruise and probably our last on such a large ship. The ship was very noisy in the public areas. Because we were at sea so long, many wanted to play cards or other games. At first we were kicked out of the Garden Cafe ... Read more

My favorite cruises are the Trans-Atlantic repositioning trips. This one looked like a great itinery and that's why we took it. I'm not particularlly fond of the BIG ships, but we thought we'd give the Getaway a try. Ocean crossing was ... Read more

I took the Transatlantic on Norwegian Getaway from Miami to Copenhagen at the end of April this year. Embarkation was very quick, from getting off the transfer coach to being on board: 20 minutes, I was on board by 12h30. Cabins were ... Read more
