I waited till the end of the cruise to file this review as I have never had such a bad experience on a cruise before like I did on this ship. First of all, we were informed a month in advance that our ship would not dock in Stockholm ... Read more

Each cruise has its own stories...most goes well, some not so much. Sometimes they are amazing, and sometimes simply OK. This one had some issues. The very first day, we were unable to dock at Warnemunde due to high winds. The approach ... Read more

We boarded the ship easily on Monday, June 12th at about 11:30 A.M. I was wondering where all the people were because it was such an easy entrance. We had taken a taxi from our hotel near the airport to the pier which was between ... Read more

We expected something similar to the Epic and were sorely disappointed. The rooms felt smaller and the layout was not flowing. Surprisingly, everything felt smaller, I am not sure what they were going for in their design. As for service, ... Read more

This cruise was unique in that you can embark either in Copenhagen or Warnemuende, Germany (about 2.5 hours from Berlin). Because I was going to spend time in Germany afterwards it seemed to make sense to embark from Germany. I don't ... Read more

We have long wanted to visit the Baltic, with a particular interest in Russia, and found that the itinerary, timing, and price of this cruise worked well for us. We had originally booked a mini suite, but bid on, and "won" the ... Read more

We have been on close to 15 cruises and have traveled extensively on land vacations as well. This was our first cruise on NCL. We cruise mostly on Celebrity. We had a wonderful time on the Getaway! We are a family of five and arrived in ... Read more

The ship was great, clean, the staff kind courteous and helpful without exception. Didn't love the food, but I only tried 3 speciality restaurants, so can't speak to the ones I did not try. La Bistro, the french restaurant was the best. ... Read more

We really enjoyed the entertainment on board and the Cruise Director Andre did a wonderful job. Our favorite band was Into the Drift and Million Dollar Quartet was the best show at sea. Our 4th cruise on Norwegian we always get ... Read more

We were on the June 3rd sailing from Copenhagen - 9 night Baltic Capitals. Overall, the cruise was good with the itinerary/ports being the highlight by far. There were some minor issues with the cruise itself which I will touch on here, ... Read more

We took the Getaway twice in 2016 on a western Caribbean itinerary and loved it both times. Out of Miami on a 7 day you have 4 full port days which most ships only have 3 on a 7 day from S Fla. When it moved to the Baltic in May, we ... Read more

We arrived a day earlier in Copenhagen to give us time to explore the city and adjust to time difference. We stayed at the Ascot Hotel which was centrally located to the heart of Copenhagen. Hotel was older but nice and clean. Suggest to ... Read more

This was a crowded ship, too many people for me. Did not feel like this was an "as you wish" (free style) cruise. I did not wish for waiting at all the dining venues that were complementary, or being sent from one to the ... Read more

The dinner service was terrible. Almost every time I had already eaten my appetizer before my drinks arrived. 2 and half hours for dinner was too long. Food was nothing spectacular. Just average. I was hoping for more ethnic food ... Read more

My husband and I selected this cruise because of the cities visited. It was our first time taking a cruise and we were a little unsure if the 'cruising' aspect would appeal to us. We were not disappointed - the cruise was all that we hoped ... Read more

Overall enjoyed the 9 night Baltic Cruise on Getaway. The ports were all worth seeing with the overnight in St Petersburg the definite highlight. We chose to hire a private local guide for both days for a customised experience and also ... Read more

I originally wanted to do a Baltic itinerary because I wanted something I hadn't done before, wanted to make sure work couldn't follow me, and I wanted a non-beach itinerary as I don't do beaches. History and art and culture sounded like a ... Read more

We choose this cruise because of the timing and the ports. We have said on many NCL ships and enjoyed this ship despite the size. It didn't feel crowded and they even had another breakfast option in Moderno offering the same menu as the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had never been to the Baltic Sea. Actually, living in Florida, it was also a great way to escape from the heat for a while. We were fortunate to be able to stay in the Haven--I recommend it to anyone who ... Read more

Our youngest kid just graduated from College. We'd had him pay 50% of his schooling, room, food, etc. and didn't tell him that we saved his contribution. So, at Christmastime, we finally said, "Want a new car? A lump sum ... Read more

We couldn't have been more pleased with our 9 day Baltic States Cruise. All of the staff was so friendly and helpful. I understand the crew had a tough week prior to our departure in Copenhagen but we would have never have known. ... Read more
