"This was our 18th cruise, but the first on NCL. The Getaway is a newer beautiful ship that holds 4000 passengers. We booked a mini-suite. Same as a balcony room except a couple of feet longer and had a large..."Read More

My husband and I got married in the courthouse swearing we would have a wedding eventually! Wellllll 3 years later we decided to use the money we were saving to go on a trip! We chose this journey across the atlantic and we are so happy we did we absolutely loved it! the only small negative is that the water was too rough to pull into ponta del gata so we were at sea for like 7 days straight. Not ...

Reposition back to home state. Price was reasonable. Had mini suite, size good, bathroom wonderful, high marks on this. Food in specialty restaurant was very good, main din8ng room food average, nothing’s special. Buffet had wide assortment, breakfast really good, as well as some lunch entrees. Activities were always offered but spaces to participate or view was limited for size of ship and ...

We chose this trip because of it's itinerary. My wife wanted to see the Eiffel Tower and the Arch of Triumph in Paris, France. Also, she wanted to visit London and see Buckingham Palace. London has so many historical and majestic sites. Big Ben was under renovations. The House of Commons and Parliment had many protestors for and against Brexit. Westminster Abbey is very beautiful. Buckingham ...

Although the itinerary was a dream come true for me, the ship itself and its management had a lot to be desired! I know it’s was a repositioning longer cruise than usual, but the staff and management were so unprepared and disorganized constantly that we cannot recommend this ship! First, they ran out of a lot of staple type food items, like Iced Tea, Orange Juice, Lettuce ...

Passenger to Crew ratio was less than desirable

We chose this cruise for the uniqueness of it's itinerary and length of cruise. Unfortunately Copenhagen, Denmark was the crew change-over (maybe Rotterdam, The Netherlands) and we had 3800 plus passengers and 1300 crew. Service was typically slow in all dining rooms, food was bland, tough, or not cooked correctly in many instances. Since we skipped Portugal it seems we ran out of many food ...

Terrible lines, noise and crowds.

The lines, noise and crowds were terrible. For example, the organization of the immigration clearance in Miami was terrible and unforgivable. We shuffled in line for an hour and a half, for no reason, to get to the immigration desk. I calculated about 400 people in the queue in the main bay alone. Why, when they were only processing about five people per minute? Why run a line from the ...

Our first cruise and just wanted to try it out at a slower pace. We totally enjoyed the time at sea as there were plenty of activities to do. We didn't get the specialty dining package and glad that we didn't because there was no need as we had great meals almost every day. Our cabin was roomy with balcony, good size for a couple. Althought we did miss not having a retractale clothesline ...

My husband and I are seasoned travelers but have only taken three cruises all with competitors (Carnival, Princess and Cunard) prior to booking this cruise. We were attracted to this cruise because of our desire to experience a transatlantic cruise, the specific itinerary and the fact that it debarked in New Orleans. Their “free style” sales pitch also seemed to resonate with our travel ...

As a recommendation from close friends we were convinced that this would be the prefect way to get "out feet wet" with cruising. Our friends had been on many cruises before this and certainly knew the ropes. What we found was endless lines of people for every event ranging from mandatory passport inspections, to dining (even with reservations), to entertainment, to going to our planned ...

NCL could have done better!

This was our 12th NCL cruise in the past 17 years and I must say the level of customer service has dropped considerably over those years. Much of the shortfalls on this particular cruise had to do with the weather which, of course, NCL could do nothing about, especially our having to be caught in Hurricane Pablo and a Tropical Storm! What I would have expected though is that they have a lot of ...
