This was our first TA cruise. 6 days at sea turned out to be 10. Porta Delgada was cancelled due to high winds, major disaster with disembarkation/embarkation in Brest (talk about walking the plank, that's what literally happened). ... Read more

One does not notice how crowded some of the largest ships in the NCL fleet, like the Getaway, can become until you find yourself in a transatlantic cruise Miami to Copenhagen (April-May) and the expected port stops don’t happen ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of being a Transatlantic with ports in the Azores, France, England, Belgium. This signage found in the Studio Cabin area sums up the 16-day Transatlantic cruise out of Miami on April 30th. Kind of a ... Read more

This was our very 1st cruise and probably our last on such a large ship. The ship was very noisy in the public areas. Because we were at sea so long, many wanted to play cards or other games. At first we were kicked out of the Garden Cafe ... Read more

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 ... Read more

I took the Transatlantic on Norwegian Getaway from Miami to Copenhagen at the end of April this year. Embarkation was very quick, from getting off the transfer coach to being on board: 20 minutes, I was on board by 12h30. Cabins were ... Read more

Chose this cruise based on price and availability and most importantly ports to visit. We sailed from Miami, to Ponta Delgada, Azores, no stop at our first port due to the weather, captain could not dock the ship because of high winds, ... Read more

First transatlantic and we had a wonderful time. 2 of the 5 ports were missed to due weather conditions and an engine problem. They reimbursed us for the ports we missed. Since customs officers could not get on in the missed port there was ... Read more

I chose this cruise because my husband wanted to try a trans-Atlantic cruise. The cost was very reasonable and many other couples in our community were traveling on this cruise so it seemed like a great idea. There were some positives ... Read more

My wife and I did a trans-Atlintic cruise two years ago and we really enjoyed it. We have never been to the Azores or Ireland before so we decided to do this cruise. We flew from DFW to Tampa a few days early, rented a car and enjoyed ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the price, destinations, length, and perks. Traveling from Miami to Denmark, with all you can drink and 4 specialty restaurants, for $93 per person per night is incredible! We did miss a port due to ... Read more

I chose this cruise because my husband and I had a lovely experience with a Transatlantic crossing on the NCL Star in 2013. Bad choice! The ship's decor is lovely, not garish and over the top like some cruise lines. The downside is ... Read more

The Good: 1. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze. We did not bring a lot of luggage, therefore the easy walk off was a great option. We were out on the pier in Southampton within 15 minutes of the clearance for ... Read more

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 ... Read more

Firstly, we chose this cruise mainly for rest and "landed" in the UK without the dreaded jetlag! We stayed in the Westin, very close to the port pre-cruise and had a complimentary van transfer which took less than 5 minutes...$20 ... Read more

Repositioning cruise is a great value and a fabulous itinerary with San Francisco and Victoria stops. We only had to purchase one-way flights home since we were able to embark from our local port of Los Angeles. I don't need a bikini, ... Read more

This was a very clean, happy ship. The washy-washy staff even had a guitar and would serenade us as we entered the buffet. We ate at all of the complimentary venues except Azura. All of them had tasty choices. My favorite for embarkation ... Read more
