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 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

We enjoy transatlantic crossings to enjoy the ship's amenities and to avoid suffering through long airline flights. This is our fourth crossing - the third going to Europe and one from Europe to the U.S. We chose the dining package for ... Read more

This is my 3rd cruise with NCL and my first on a “Mega Ship”, also my first Transatlantic. My best friend and I planned this trip for nearly a year. We flew to Miami on April 29th and stayed at Best Western Premier ... Read more

I chose this cruise, B2B and Baltic Capitals, for the fact that I could do two cruises in one. I have read the other reviews and mostly agree with others. We (my Husband, my two cousins, my aunt, and my cousins wife and I) were sorely ... Read more

We did back to back, trans Atlantic and Baltic. Not enough time in port especially when it takes such a long time to disembark. Shore excursions grossly expensive and of poor value. Luckily the two Day Petersburg tour was thru a private ... 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

Other disappointed & disgruntled passengers have left extensive reviews on this poorly executed NCL Getaway repositioning cruise. They are all worth reading. I would like to add that 3 of our party of 4 contracted a serious bronchial ... 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, let me just say I enjoyed the cruise. But, there were so many things wrong with the cruise that what should have been a great experience was reduced to a standard good experience. Restaurants: We acquired symptoms of strep ... 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

Several stories have been going around regarding missing ports and long lines to get back on the ship during this cruise. The Azores was missed because of high wind and waves which were a safety issue when trying to dock. An electrical ... 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

We chose this cruise because of the ports of call. Unfortunately, due to weather and ship problems, we were not able to see the Azores or Belgium. VERY DISAPPOINTED. However, these things could not be controlled. Just part of cruising. ... 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
