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

Chose this cruise based on price and availability and most importantly ports to visit. We sailed from Miami, to Ponta Delgada, Azores, no stop at our first port due to the weather, captain could not dock the ship because of high winds, ... Read more

We chose it because you could not beat the price. Our mini-suite was wonderful-just enough room and always clean. The food was good and plentiful but we thought the quality was average. Also,certain items that you would have on a general ... Read more

First transatlantic and we had a wonderful time. 2 of the 5 ports were missed to due weather conditions and an engine problem. They reimbursed us for the ports we missed. Since customs officers could not get on in the missed port there was ... Read more

We love T/A cruises, lots of sea days, meeting new friends, even playing trivia( we never do this at home!) Jade was good in November when we went to Tampa, but even better in April after her refit. We liked the new O'Sheehans bar on deck ... Read more

We wanted to go to Europe and this cruise offered several destinations that we had not visited previously. The most desirable destination was Bruges, Belgium. Unfortunately, the ship bypassed that port because time did not permit after ... Read more

The cruise was going okay until we attempted to get into the Azores where we didn't dock because we were told the ship couldn't get in because of weather. It was more than likely an electrical issue with the azipods that we found out the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the price, destinations, length, and perks. Traveling from Miami to Denmark, with all you can drink and 4 specialty restaurants, for $93 per person per night is incredible! We did miss a port due to ... Read more

I chose this cruise because my husband and I had a lovely experience with a Transatlantic crossing on the NCL Star in 2013. Bad choice! The ship's decor is lovely, not garish and over the top like some cruise lines. The downside is ... Read more
