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

We had a great time on the Norwegian Getaway!! Before embarkation we spent a few days in Copenhagen. We visited Tivoli Gardens, went on a canal boat tour and visited the Rosenborg Palace. Embarkation and disembarkation were very efficient, ... 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

Having never sailed on a vessel this large before we were concerned about feeling overwhelmed with large crowds on the Getaway. The design of the ship with many different venues (and a lot of them behind closed doors) provides an intimate ... Read more

We arrived in Copenhagen 2 days before the cruise and really enjoyed the time and sights before leaving. We were on the Escape in November 2016 and the Getaway is the sister ship so we knew what the layout was like. This was our 8th NCL ... Read more

Back on the Norwegian Cruise line again. Did some trips with Costa, but Norwegian Cruise Line is so much better. I love the quality of the entertainment and the friendliness of the staff. The studios are very good for single travellers ... Read more

It's been a few years, since I have cruised with NCL, and thought I would be a loyal cruiser with Royal Caribbean but my last few cruises with Royal Caribbean had been inundated with solicitations from crew members for drinks, specialty ... Read more

My husband and I have cruised with NCL 7 times now, but the Getaway is our least favorite ship. The ship was too crowded and had too many kids running around especially by the pool and buffet dinning room. 2 major disappointments were ... Read more

We met up with friends from Germany and sailed out of this port. The overall experience was ok, but the major embarkation port is Copenhagen, so almost every part of the ship's process was geared towards this process. Thus, even though ... Read more

Just returned from Copenhagen after cruising the Norwegian Getaway 9-day Baltic Sea cruise. This was only our second cruise; our first was on Disney many years ago and our family of 4 (2 young adult kids) agrees that it was overall ... Read more

I chose this ship for a number of reasons: I love Norwegian, they have solo cabins, and because of the great itinerary. I went to Copenhagen two days early and enjoyed sightseeing there very much - I booked two tours while I was there ... Read more

Having never visited Europe I figured a cruise was much better than backpacking. Upon arrival to the port of Copenhagen we found that embarkation was a bit haphazard with luggage drop off, however the boarding process was efficient. We ... Read more

My son and his family planned this cruise and invited my to come along. Since I'd never been to most of the cities on the itinerary, I accepted. I booked a solo (or Studio) cabin. Since I am an "early to rise - early to bed" ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it visited the cities we wanted to see in the time we had available. The Getaway is a very large ship, but that didn't seem to be a problem. Our cabin was beautiful, plenty of room. The bathroom, and shower ... Read more

The embarkation was a disaster and resembled a disorganized bun fight.We were told because we were frequent cruisers with NCL we would have a priority embarkation queue. Never found that because it didn't exist.I very rarely play my ... Read more

The ship is newer and in very good condition. Rooms are comfortable. Bathrooms and showers are very comfortable - more than in other cruise ships I have been on. The ship never felt crowded though it is a big ship with over 4000 guests. ... Read more

I chose this cruise as I had enjoyed a similar itinerary a few years ago and had wanted to come back. Getaway gave me this chance at a reasonable price due to their solo studios. My cabin was what I had expected though the entrance to ... Read more

Do be sure to be near a window when cruising from Stockholm to Copenhagen through the Stockholm Archipelago, apparently around 24000 little islands and islets. See photo. It take a while but suddenly you are cruising so close to holiday ... Read more

I chose Getaway because I wanted to try the solos cabins on NCL. I also liked the itinerary which had no where that I hadn't been before which meant lots of walking and not so much touristing which was what I wanted. Getaway is huge ... Read more
