Norwegian Getaway

May 2017 - Norwegian Getaway to Europe - Northern Europe

Redemption

This was something of a redemption, for those of us who had been on the prior Trans-Atlantic (which faced several disasters).  The ports were lovely, ship is nice, but receiving notice of changes in where we would dock, while at sea, is really annoying, as is the line's practice of listing ports by different names (Stockholm docks in Nynashamn). I actually called NCL to find out where we were scheduled to dock in each city, and we did not dock where we were told we would be in several ports.

That said, the ship is in good shape, the food was good and the staff was fabulous!

Norwegian Breakaway

February 2014 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

Great fun, but beware of poor ventilation in casino!

We had a great time on the Breakaway, and it was just what to doctor ordered (a break from this miserable winter!)  We were concerned about being on such a large ship, but it was a non-issue. Service, food and entertainment were excellent.,  Ports were okay, certainly not among our favorites, but this was about getting away, not the destinations.

 

However, and it's a big however, the air pollution from the casino was literally intolerable.  My husband has emphysema, and we had to route ourselves to avoid the casino area, and as the area is three decks high, we avoided the areas above and below as much as possible.  We were not alone in our complaint regarding this area.  We understand that a great deal of the ships revenue is generated in the casino, but it's a sad world that pits profit against health concerns.

patswife2's Tips

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany - There is a fun little excursion train in Warnemunde, and the town is very walkable and interesting. This is the location for the most affordable souvenirs.
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece - You can get great bargain bus excursion to Olympic site on the Main Street of the port. Grab several other passengers and they'll give a group rate. About 1/10th the price of NCL excursion and you can go at your own pace.
Nassau, Bahamas - try to connect with a private tour, much more thorough and affordable
Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - If you're looking for sun, and not traveling with children, the decks above the pool deck are some of the nicest and quietest! Without a doubt, the best show onboard was Slam Allen in Fat Cats!
