Chose this cruise to see the sights. Arrived in Copenhagen but straight to ship without being able to sightsee. We were told no opportunity on the way home either. Made special request to disembark earlier on last day - no help with this ... Read more

I only booked the cruise on the Getaway because of the ports and timing. After sailing on the Epic, I did not think I would cruise on such a large ship again, but I do believe that improvements were made in the design of passageways which ... Read more

This was our first time on NCL. We have taken approximately 15 cruises, 10 of which have been over 10 days and sailed to a variety of ports in Europe and the Mediterranean. My husband & I picked NCL since it went to places we had not ... Read more

I chose this as my first cruise because it wasn't too long, it was not in the ocean and it had a lot of ports to places i had never been before. I liked that the ship was big and that it had room availability where i wanted on the ship, ... Read more

Chose this cruise mostly for the itinerary and that we had a good experience with Norwegian previously. The pluses were: Good (not excellent) food and a variety of restaurants and menus to choose from. Cagney's was by far the best ... Read more

Entertainment and food options were great. You can make reservations for both the dining and entertainment and I highly recommend you do so because of the size of the venues otherwise you will find yourself dining at the buffet and missing ... Read more

The wife and I decided to embark on our first cruise. I have always wanted to cruise the Baltic. Our choice of ship was the Norwegian Getaway. Wow what a ship. We arrived in Copenhagen two days in advance so we could also take in all the ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on destinations we were interested in visiting, timing , and a good price. We have done large ships and small, but never one this big. It just seemed overwhelming, although the service was generally good and the ... Read more

Very fast paced cruise, in 9 days you visit 6 ports so prepare for a lot of go go go. Highly recommended you book tours in Berlin and Russia. The other ports are manageable as a self explore. All locations knew a conversational level of ... Read more

We just returned from a 10 day cruise on Norwegian Getaway. We had amazing weather and amazing ports. The ship is a newer ship and was beautiful. The rooms have a great amount of storage and we had an extended balcony which was ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the destination ports and were not disappointed there. However, the Getaway was very large but that seems to be due to the number of rooms stacked on and not because of the facilities. There was no sense of flow or ... Read more

We have been on numerous NCL cruises but none for the past 7 years. We chose NCL because we wanted to go to the Baltic and they had the best schedule and rates. They did not disappoint with food, bars, shows, etc....The Shows were great. ... Read more

Itinerary was fantastic. Experience was awesome. Cost was bit pricey. Be aware that you will have one night when you can get your laundry done for $19.95, otherwise laundry is very expensive. Best value is the prepaid drinks offer, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the cities, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Helsinki and Copenhagen. We thoroughly researched each city to determine what excursions, if any we would take. If you go to Russia, it is easiest to go with ... Read more

Great itinerary - wonderful places to visit but it would have been nice to have a few more sea days to relax between the busy shore excursions. Loved the top floor with the ropes course, minature golf, water slides, pools,and shuffle ... Read more

We chose this cruise due to the itinerary and the dates. The best things about it were the entertainment, which was outstanding, and the food in the specialty restaurants. We were less impressed with the food for dinner in the standard ... Read more

This is our 6th cruise and the first with NCL - a 9-day Baltic Sea started September 10, 2017. It was the best by far in the category of on-board experience. The staff (state room, dining room and customer service) seemed to work ... Read more

This was our second cruise, the first being a 'taster', overnight cruise on P&O Britannia. We originally intended to sail in June to the Baltic but due to circumstances had to wait until April to start booking anything by which time ... Read more

I've always wanted to go to St Petersburg because I'm not the greatest sailor we never sail from Southampton so knew I'd have to go with a cruise line I've never used before. The only reason we picked NCL Getaway was we got a good deal ... Read more

Chose this cruise due to the itinerary & had traveled NCL before. Loved the port of calls. Ship is too big, too noisy & poorly designed for us. Couldn't find a quiet comfortable place to sit & read or relax anywhere on the ... Read more

A friend suggested this cruise. We got to see a lot of countries in a short amount of time which was fun and exhausting at the same time. This was our first trip to Europe so it was all very exciting. We booked a 2 day tour in Russia ... Read more

We are gold members and have enjoyed NCL many times but this time the ship was too large, impersonal and always digging into our pockets. In the past we enjoyed perks like the "meet the officers cocktail party" . We did not ... Read more
