Getaway to Nowhere

This was a last minute booking two weeks ago but we are so glad we did. We got to Southampton at 10.45 am but security didn't happen until after 11.30am. Boarding was onto deck 5 which isn't spectacular but once you go up a deck the ambiance changes. We chose to go up to the Garden buffet for lunch and had a very nice soup, salad (and pudding). The staff were very helpful and in plentiful ...

A 1 night cruise aboard pre-inaugural Norwegian Getaway was too good an opportunity to pass up, so we joined her yesterday on a sunny January day in Southampton, the port unusually quiet after the departure of all the world cruises. We were delayed a little before embarkation began, due to the ship's late arrival, but once the process started, we were speedily trying to get a proper look at the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

We enjoyed a small taster on an inaugural 1 night cruise to nowhere. Our cabin was a family inside which was adequate for 2, but I struggle to see how 4 can fit in. The storage was somewhat lacking, hanging space was fine, but not many shelves for clothes and other belongings. The cabin felt cosy and the beds were very comfy. The bathroom is surprisingly spacious with plentiful storage. The decor ...

A Fantastic Floating Resort (But NOT for Everyone)

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I visited Getaway, at Southampton, in January 2014 and stayed on-board for two nights. This brand new ship had come straight from the shipyard, via Rotterdam. She was berthed at Southampton’s ‘City Cruise Terminal’ before she crossed the pond to her home port of Miami. Getaway is the sister ship of Breakaway (both the ‘Breakaway’ class) which entered service in April 2013. It is impossible to ...

A wonderful experience

Review for Norwegian Getaway to Transatlantic

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This review is somewhat limited in its application because it is about a transatlantic crossing, which is not what the Getaway is designed to be doing. It is also limited because there were approximately 1300 guests in a ship built to carry close to 4,000. There were more crew members than guests on this rare transatlantic crossing. That said, the experience was most pleasurable. The crew is ...

In July of 2013 as a family we boarded the NCL Jade, having read the reviews and having sailed previously with Carnival on the newly refurbished Sunshine we were a little apprehensive. the Jade was a fantastic ship and the Staff were eager to make our stay enjoyable. in November i booked the one night stay on board the NCL Getaway, the newest addition to the NCL Fleet and sister ship to the NCL ...

We arrived at Southampton early and boarded the ship in record time. So we were able to go to the buffet on deck 15 for lunch. A fantastic selection of food way way better than on our previous cruise on MSC Divina. Small amounts of freshly prepared food were available and were continuously replaced as required. There were lots of staff ready to help carry food to tables and to clear tables and ...

Inaugural Voyage to New York

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

This was a fantastic trip across the Atlantic. Only 1300 passengers and 1600 crew so we were very well looked after. Our balcony cabin was perfect although we did think the balcony was not as big as some we have had. Food was all excellent and the Tropicana Main dining room provided some music and dancing if you dined between 6 and 7pm. All shows were excellent quality especially The Illusionarium ...

Wonderful Maiden Transatlantic Voyage at a Lazy Pace

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

A friend and I flew to London to see the west end premiere of a Sondheim show and decided to return to America via ship. This brand new cruise liner was about to make it's maiden voyage, taking a leisurely 10 days to transit from Southampton to New York. The route took us south across the Atlantic to the Sargasso Sea roughly even with the Florida/Georgia border before cutting up and passing wast ...

Taster cruise on NCL Getaway

We travelled up to Southampton the 14th & went to the docks for a quick look at this enormous & brightly decorated ship. She stood resplendent in the sunshine & we then stood on Town Quay to watch her sail away nicely illuminated down the Solent blasting her horn as she passed the dwarfed Red Funnel ferry!! Wednesday dawned dull & showery but, it didn’t dampen our excitement as we drove through ...
