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

Several stories have been going around regarding missing ports and long lines to get back on the ship during this cruise. The Azores was missed because of high wind and waves which were a safety issue when trying to dock. An electrical ... Read more

I booked this trip with the hopes of seeing Europe for the first time while being able to tackle the time changes more gracefully on a daily basis rather than in one blow via flight. I also have been on quite a few cruises (one Norwegian ... Read more

There were issues on this cruise due to weather and equipment failure. Brest France was a joke. NCl had never been there before and will not go back. The "Gang Plank" that so many people conplained about belongs to the port, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ports of call. Unfortunately, due to weather and ship problems, we were not able to see the Azores or Belgium. VERY DISAPPOINTED. However, these things could not be controlled. Just part of cruising. ... Read more

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
