I wanted to cruise on the Getaway and the Transatlantic offered a lot for me, 10 sea days which I love and a sister ship to the Breakaway that I love too! I am familiar with the ship itself, the restaurants and all of the entertainment venues and was happy to commit to 16 days on this beauty. The ship was so much like the Breakaway that I've been on 7 times, I was instantly at home. The ...

Excellent time on board but 80% of ports screwed up: Azures missed due to bad weather; Brest docked but 1-3 hours to leave ship, same to get back on, with shuttles only running for 4 1/2 hours; Southampton people only started to be able to leave at 2:00 pm, many not until 5:00 pm or later; Zeebrugge missed due to engine problems; Rotterdam worked well. Gave us $100 dollars compensation each ...

Disappointing ports; poor management

This was a most disappointing cruise. I have never been to any of the ports and feel I only saw one third of what I expected. I understand the reason for missing the Azores. That was a safety issue. Brest France should never have been a destination port. It is a modern city and the number of excursions outside of the city were very limited. Waiting for almost 3 hours to disembark the ship ...

Norwegian Getaway B2B and Baltic Capitals

I chose this cruise, B2B and Baltic Capitals, for the fact that I could do two cruises in one. I have read the other reviews and mostly agree with others. We (my Husband, my two cousins, my aunt, and my cousins wife and I) were sorely disappointed to have missed two ports. Getting off and on at Brest, France, and South Hampton, England, were the worst I've ever experienced. Both times we waited ...

I thought this was the worst cruise ever my first and last time with Norweigen! It in the U.K. We question up to get off the ship in a 4 hour line. The officers hid and there were no announcements about what was happening. You had to go through customs even if you weren't getting off the ship. My friend who was handicapped had to wait in the 4 hour line this was much arguing and fighting with ...

Bad cruise

Serious problems on this cruise. Missed Azores due to weather. Brest, France. I was able to get off and go on an excursion. When I returned to the ship they had only a single gangway up to deck 7. I waited 45 minutes to get on the ship. I was lucky as later on the line grew to two hours. I learned others had waited two hours in line and never made it off the ship. As the gangway was steep ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

This was our bucket-list cruise to Europe and we were very disappointed with the ship, the captain, the food, the entertainment, and the many, many WRONG things that happened. About the only good thing we have to say is that during the cruise, they offered three days of "discount" laundry service and this helped. We were not allowed to enter the Azores or Belgium because these port stops were ...

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 great - some sun & some clouds and mostly smooth sailing. Our first stop in Ponta DelGada was cancelled because of strong winds. Captain said it was too ...

This was our first time on a "Big ship" so we reserved at first when we were considering this cruise but we pick the location not the ship when booking. With that said we read how big ships are like small cities making it difficult to get from one location to another which we were delighted to find was not at all the case. However, this ships seemed to take the design of a small ship, cut all the ...
