Just got back from an incredible trip on the NCL Getaway- Southampton to Copenhagen! We upgraded our balcony room to a Club mini suite - so bigger bathroom, bag of laundry included, cookies, chocolate dipped strawberries and champagne included. Our cabin steward Danielle was amazing - no matter what time we left the cabin and came back, the room was always done and she was friendly and worked so ...

We are not new to cruising so we do have some things to compare this to. This was the cruise of a lifetime for us. It wasn't perfect, but close to it--hence the 5 star rating. The entertainment was excellent, food was good, service great. Loved all of the ports. The embarkation was rough, but most of it was out of the control of NCL. They did their best by offering sandwiches, drinks, and ...

Quick review of transatlantic trip . I did not attend any shows apart from Harry O ( The Irish guy ) so I won’t be able to review Harry O was pretty good and certainly put people in the mood to tour Dublin and Belfast . He had a full house each time Embarkation in NY was a disaster . Got there at 1230 designated time and stood in line for four hours before getting onboard. The line was ...

First impressions are everything !! Waiting hours to board when we showed up 2 hours late because ship was late. Wheelchair customers were only being taken 2 at a time with 20 minute wait between the next set of two. They didn’t finish boarding handicap customers until 6pm… shameful !!! Over the crew were outstanding but management were clueless !! When we got to Dublin we waited over 2 hours ...

A cruise is what you make it and, in my experience, largely depends on where you choose to focus, whether that's on what brings you Joy or what is iritating you. All in all, I had a wonderful experience... AND there are also some "growth opportunities" for NCL to note in my "mixed bag" review below. The Good: • Pleasant, smooth sailing in what can be rough seas at this time of year • ...

The Getaway is about to experience a 14-day dry dock in Copenhagen until early JUNE 2024...for some much needed TLC prior to a busy summer season in the Mediterranean. She is showing her age...for example, the exterior of the hull was losing paint and it was rusting all over the place. I think they were purposely NOT repainting, due to the upcoming dry dock. Also, the carpets are badly worn in the ...

Upon arrival at the dock, I was greeted with a queue down the pier. The ship was running several hours later and it took more than two hours to board the ship. Not a good start. But that wasn't the end of the lines. The ship was sold out and we had to queue for everything - everything! The weather kept all of us inside the Getaway, making a very crowded ship. Showrooms large and small were ...

First off, this was only my second cruise. First cruise was on NCL over 20yrs ago. Our cruise started out from NYC, boarding was very smooth, efficient, and staff were super nice. The food in the main dining buffet (Garden Cafe) was pretty decent and a lot of options, however after 10 days the food was very bland with some exceptions like the pepper steak, ham and cheese panini. Breakfast was ...

This was our first cruise out of Manhattan and first time in NY for me. We are Gold and 6 days away from Platinum. Our first time on Getaway. Embarkation was great. We had 10-10:30 check-in and were on the ship by 11:30. Went immediately to change some dining reservations and there was a 10 minute line. Had lunch at Savor, checked in with Muster, stateroom was ready approximately 2:40 PM. ...
