I loved this cruise. Definitely one of my favorites. Our journey started by driving 5.5 hours to Washington Dulles for our direct flight to Copenhagen on SAS airlines. No problems. Landed on time and proceeded to luggage to take our ... Read more

I chose NCL because of my past experiences with them, itinerary and availability of studio staterooms. Before the cruise I read complaints about the embarkation process but for me the process went quickly and smoothly in Copenhagen. The ... Read more

Choose this cruise because of the dates and itinerary. Our earlier cruises were on cozy ships. So we were a bit worried about the size and had read reviews about the difficulty of getting on and off, but we were pleasantly surprised. ... Read more

Overall a decent cruise. The ship was pretty big, and offered a lot of entertainment and ideas to occupy your day. Really, we chose this cruise to be able to sail to Russia. Everything else was just extra icing. We actually arrived at ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary. It was a little larger than I would have liked, but it wasn't bad. The ship was very clean and well maintained. Our cabin was lovely, #5740, for three of us. The food was very good. We had dinner ... Read more

We chose Norwegian for the itinerary and familiarity with the cruise line. Unfortunately this boat is just too big, only adding people and not amenities. It's crowded and loud and our stateroom was tiny. The customer service desk is ... Read more

The ship is very large with almost 4000 passengers. Very nice, clean ship, but on the at sea days the crowds and noise is almost unbearable. I have been on several cruises, but never on a ship this size. We were not able to dock in ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, the Baltics. We sailed on the Getaway on August 23, 2017. The ship is beautiful and the common areas are nicely appointed. We stayed in a mid-ship balcony cabin. This was not our first ... Read more

Before I begin my review, let me make the point that planning ahead will make for a much more pleasant experience on this huge ship. I strongly suggest that you make dining and entertainment reservations online ("My NCL") before ... Read more

An excellent boat with great cabins, excellent service, and great food, but it has one major drawback for cruising the Baltic - its criteria for getting into the trickier ports are too strict, making the risk of cancellation because of the ... Read more

I picked this cruise for the itinerary. I loved all the ports although we could not go to Stockholm due to weather which meant two consecutive days at sea. The ship is large and noisy with too few areas for quiet relaxation especially with ... Read more

This was our first experience of cruising, chosen mainly for the interesting itinerary of places we hadn't visited before. Embarking was very easy. It's worth arranging the flight through NCL as there are lots of people to meet you at ... Read more

We wanted to see the Scandinavian countries and had a day in Copenhagen before leaving. I'd recommend 2-3 days, although it is an expensive city. Getting on and off was about as easy as they could make it - embarkation went fairly fast, ... Read more

No cruise is a bad cruise and this certainly wasn’t bad, but after enjoying six other cruises the Norwegian Getaway would rate as my least favorite ship (and I am talking here only about the ship, not the service or destinations). ... Read more

I was really excited to sail on the Getaway after all the hype, but was totally disappointed. Having sailed with Celebrity/RCCL the past few years I decided to return to NCL after a disappointing cruise on the Gem a few years ago. ... Read more

I travelled on the Norwegian Jade last year for my first ever cruise and loved it so decided to stick with NCL again this year. This itinerary sounded interesting and docked in cities that I had not been to before. Booking and ... Read more

This cruise was on our 'bucket list'. Cruising the Baltic is the best way to visit these countries because, even though it is doable by train, traveling through Europe is difficult at our age. We started our trip with a day in ... Read more
