We chose this cruise for Havana and we enjoyed it. Embarcation was fast so we were at Crossings by 12:30. Room was ready by 1:30. Our steward Andre was very helpful getting us another chair for the balcony as there were 3 of us. I was ... Read more

We went to Alaska on the Jewel. I was so impressed with how well the ship was maintained and kept clean. The staff was so nice and friendly. The officers and crew were awesome. We had the pleasure to meet the Captain several times and ... Read more

My wife and I are Platinum Latitudes members. Most of our cruises have been with NCL. First time on the Gem, a very clean and well run ship. Boarding and disembark from NYC needs some attention. We enjoyed 5 nights in the specialty ... Read more

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 ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the opportunity to see San Francisco and Vancouver with extra days of travel at both ends of an Alaskan cruise and were not disappointed. The Sun is a beautiful yet small ship with a great crew and staff. As ... Read more

The NCL Sun is fighting the aging of the seas quite well. Public areas are kept up to high standards, though some might consider them dated. Cabins, quite the opposite. The dating shows, and only major remodeling will fix some of the ... Read more

We joined the ship at San Francisco for the Alaska cruise and in spite of having an arrival at the pier time we had to queue for about forty five minutes outside the terminal. Being a hot day I was not too happy about this. Once inside the ... Read more

You can read through the other transatlatic reviews for a detailed recap of what happened - the quick summary is that we missed 2 ports (one due to weather, one due to a mechanical problem), and had some issues with lines and customs ... Read more

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 ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was a TA [Trans-Atlantic]. Let me say, I am not a fan of the 'big ships', too much useless space and not enough needed space. By that I mean, the main restaurants are small and only one level, incurring long ... Read more

Having sailed on NCL 4 times since 2013 (two of which were transatlantic cruises on the Epic), we chose the Getaway to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We chose it for the itinerary, the experience on a new ship class, and our past ... Read more

Background We decided to take this cruise simply because we had flight credits that needed to be used by May. We wanted to go back to England and the cruise over seemed to be a good plan. We love cruising and have spent about 400 ... Read more

My wife and I booked an April 30th 16 day transatlantic cruise not because of the company (NCL) but for the ports that we wanted to and were supposed to visit. First issue was cleanliness of the room. My wife returned to the room to ... Read more

We decided to take this cruise, because we have never been on a TA, and this would be perfect for us, since we wanted to go and visit family in Germany and Copenhagen is just a 45 min flight away. We loved the Breakaway and being that ... Read more

Of 16 days on the Norwegian Getaway’s repositioning cruise from Miami to Copenhagen, 12 were at sea. Four of five ports en route were canceled or grievously abbreviated. On departure from Miami, there were warnings of bad weather ... Read more

This was a nightmare cruise from start to finish. Long lines at embarkation and NCL eliminated priority for Gold Members...only platinum and platinum plus. We entered our cabin to find blood stains on our duvet and old, yellowed, pilled ... Read more

We took the Getaway on April 30th from Miami to Copenhagen and were very disappointed! The name of this ship should be Stayaway instead of Getaway. The design of the ship was not adequate for 4000 passengers. The lines for the main dining ... Read more

This cruise was HORRIBLE. NCL is focused only on profits and not customer experience. Once they have your money they ignore you. To summarize A: we were to stop at 5 European ports before our arrival in Copennhagen, we only made 1 ... Read more

When searching for a cruise, this one showed up in an email with a price that couldn't be passed up. The cruise experience, along with the visits to places we might not otherwise see, was a big positive. The accommodations, public spaces, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we live just south of Tampa and had yet to use this port since moving down here five years ago. We love transatlantic cruises and this was our first time doing it eastbound. The bonus for us was that the Jade ... Read more
