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

This was a Great Cruise we met some great people and some great crew. Let me start by saying I'm not a fan of big ships normally but crossing the ocean the first time I wanted a BIG SHIP. The NCL Getaway is a BIG SHIP. This was my ... 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

We enjoy transatlantic crossings to enjoy the ship's amenities and to avoid suffering through long airline flights. This is our fourth crossing - the third going to Europe and one from Europe to the U.S. We chose the dining package for ... Read more

This is my 3rd cruise with NCL and my first on a “Mega Ship”, also my first Transatlantic. My best friend and I planned this trip for nearly a year. We flew to Miami on April 29th and stayed at Best Western Premier ... Read more

I chose this cruise, B2B and Baltic Capitals, for the fact that I could do two cruises in one. I have read the other reviews and mostly agree with others. We (my Husband, my two cousins, my aunt, and my cousins wife and I) were sorely ... Read more

We did back to back, trans Atlantic and Baltic. Not enough time in port especially when it takes such a long time to disembark. Shore excursions grossly expensive and of poor value. Luckily the two Day Petersburg tour was thru a private ... 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

Other disappointed & disgruntled passengers have left extensive reviews on this poorly executed NCL Getaway repositioning cruise. They are all worth reading. I would like to add that 3 of our party of 4 contracted a serious bronchial ... 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

First, let me just say I enjoyed the cruise. But, there were so many things wrong with the cruise that what should have been a great experience was reduced to a standard good experience. Restaurants: We acquired symptoms of strep ... Read more
