  3. Norwegian Getaway
My husband and I wanted to see this part of the world. We love cruising and we love cruising on Norwegian so it was a perfect match. The Getaway, though a big ship, did not feel "big". We loved the way La Cucina and Le Bistro (two of our favourite restraints) were set up as sidewalk cafes. The service and food, as always were excellent. The entertainment was superb from Burn the Floor, Cirque Dreams and Steam, to Million Dollar Quartette. We enjoyed many of the lounges for pre-dinner cocktails. Upgrading to a balcony was a great idea. The extra space and the views were exciting. We did excursions in all the ports and enjoyed them all. Rostock and Talin were quaint and picturesque St Petersburg was amazing Loved touring Helsinki and Stockholm Of course, we met wonderful fellow cruisers, had many enlightening conversations and made new friends. It was a wonderful trip and we look forward to our Panama Canal Cruise on the Star in April.
