Norwegian Getaway

September 2017 - Norwegian Getaway to Europe - Northern Europe

The Perfect Getaway

Absolutely wonderful!!!! We have been on 20+ cruises with various cruise lines, but this was one of the best as far as food and excursions are concerned. We really enjoy the NCL casual attire guidelines.

Norwegian Jade

September 2015 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Fun Adventure

We chose this cruise based on ports and we were pleased with most of them.  The ship itself was easy to navigate and the food was delicious!  If our cabin was better, I would have rated this cruise higher.

mgd1hipster's Tips

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany - While most of the tours were into Berlin, the 6 hour round trip did not entice us. Instead, we chose to visit the Schwerin castle and we were not disappointed. This fairy tale castle was beautiful inside and out. There was so much to see...Each room was decorated differently. The landscaping was just a lovely. After a short talk into town, we were given free time to explore on our own.
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - Enjoy as many of the restaurants as possible...the food is delicious!
Copenhagen, Denmark - While we did not go on a ship excursion, we spent several days in Copenhagen before and after the cruise. We enjoyed the sightseeing which we did on the Hop-on and Hop-off bus. The people in the city are friendly and willing to help with directions and offer recommendations.
Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden - We toured the Vasa Museum which was absolutely fascinating. The story behind the ship, it's discovery and how the museum was built around the ship was very interesting. The appearance of the ship and details of its construction captured the imagination. The town of Stockholm and medieval Old Town were equally fascinating.
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation - We took the two day Best of St Petersburg tour and were non stop for the 17 hours. The palaces and museum were awesome...and very crowded. It was hard to see everything in the few hours we toured, but it was enough to get a sense of their greatness. We visited the church of the Spilled Blood, but it was too early to go inside, which was a disappointment. The main problem we encountered was not being able to leave the port the second night as scheduled due to the wind conditions. We were happy to sail away the next morning.
Tallinn, Estonia - While I wasn't sure what to expect from Estonia, the Scenic Tallinn tour was very interesting. The Tall Tower, Swan pond, and Song Festival grounds contained a wealth of history. Also the Olympic grounds and yachting complex were amazing to see.
Helsinki, Finland - As stated above, we were not able to leave Russia as scheduled; therefore, our ship was not able to visit Finland as planned.
