Wrong Itinerary for this ship

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
All in all, it was a great trip. Originally, this itinerary was serviced by a smaller ship, but that was changed in the spring of this year. Since I wanted to see these ports, I had no choice but to book on the Getaway. Not a good choice for an itinerary like this. This was also a repositioning cruise, which, thankfully, we did not choose to continue on. Too many days at sea. With the ship this crowded, I can only imagine it would be a nightmare on a 7 day crossing of the Atlantic Ocean.

Norwegian Getaway to the Baltic.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
The logistics of the shore excursions needs some work. Many times we felt like sardines in a can because they told the people for 5 to 8 busses to leave the meeting at the same time. Going down the stairs for three or four flights packed tightly should have been remedied. One to two busses at a time to disembark is plenty. Also in Stockholm, we took the tour, Stockholm by land and sea. When we got to the riverboat, they should have had two boats. They packed two busses worth of people on to one tour boat. Many people could not take pictures and had to stand. They also said their would be bathrooms, which most needed after 2 1/2 hours of waiting and riding a bus. When we got on the tour boat, there was one bathroom for over 100 people. Very poor organization fora pricey tour.

We loved the cruise and would recommend this to anyone. The history was marvelous as well as the excursions. To visit these wonderful cities is a real treat as they are ones we would not visit on a regular short vacation.

Nice Cruise

I certainly enjoyed my cruise on the Getaway. This was my first on Norwegian, I liked the dinning options and the ability to eat late. The staff and service on this cruise was the best I have encountered on any cruise I have done in the past. The only issue I have with the cruise is some of the nickel dime charges Norwegian does to it's guest, they should reevaluate that approach.

Great ship - clean, well designed. Embarkation/debarkation was a breeze. All service personnel on the ship were friendly and efficient. You won't regret sailing on the Getaway. Love NCL!

Nice Norwegian Getaway around Nordics countries

Nice cruise experience around Nordics with St. Petersburg and Tallin as highlights - a must go! The ship is clean and comfortable with excellent staff. The ares to improve on - the internet access, communication tool among a group on the ship and information source on the ship. Overall wonderful experience for a relaxing holiday with kids.

Beautiful Baltic

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group
The cruise was great overall. The Russian Ballet was NOT GOOD AT ALL! Staff blamed us (the customers) for not asking if it was anything but a high school ballet production for $135!!! WHAT!? Other than the customer service staff at the main lobby desk, this cruise was great. The high ropes course was amazing. The spa was lovely. The gym was very clean and easy to use. The ship was large and fairly easy to get around. Very good trip overall -- but staff did leave a lot to be desired.

Great cruise; Get off the ship early in St Petersburg!

Good cruise overall. If you book a non-cruise-ship tour of St. Petersburg, as we did, make sure you get off the ship at least one hour before your tour is scheduled to start in order to get through Russian immigration. The cruise lines mislead passengers who do not book their tours through them, so that they can get the ship tour groups at the head of the immigration line. I asked the ship personnel when I should get off the ship in order to make an 8:30 am tour and was told to get off at 8:00 am. At that point I was at the back of a one-hour queue, and barely made the tour. The ship cannot refuse disembarkation once the ship has been cleared. (No announcement was made when the ship was cleared.)

Massive. Too massive?

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Its a wonderful selection of cities and I highly recommend. Pace is fast to take it all in. This is not a truly relax and getaway (pun) schedule. That said the same cruise on a smaller ship would be nicer. Remember that 2-3 ships dock at each port disgorging around 8000-10000 passengers at same moment into these small towns. It really takes away from the charm. Knew this ahead of time but the reality is something to see.

Very good cruise would rate it better than costa or msc. overall only the entertainment variety was lacking some. Those that performed were good, smaller entertainment venues were difficult to get into if not reserved early

GREAT DELUXE OWNERS SUITE LAYOUT BUT LEVEL OF SERVICE AND AMENITIES DO NOT MEASURE UP FOR TOP LEVEL SUITE

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
LEVEL OF SERVICES AND PERKS NEEDS IMPROVEMENTS FOR GUEST TAKING TOP LEVEL SUITES. ROYAL CARRIBEAN RECOGNIZES THIS. DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THAT TOP LEVEL SUITES SHOULD NOT BE SADDLED WITH THE SAME PETTY CHARGES THAT YOU CHARGED TO THE LOWER LEVEL CABINS. PAYING $25,000 PLUS FOR CABIN AND TOLD YOU MUST PAY FOR WATER IN RESTAURANTS AND MINIMAL INTERNET PACKAGE FOR ONE USER AND DEVICE IS A COMPLETE TURNOFF.

Would not cruise on NCL again even if they paid me, have been on around 15 cruises and by far this was the worst (even worse than Carnival. I have been on Silver Sea so I guess you get what you pay for

Wonderful ship experience, with history to be seen on the port excursions (whether with NCL or independent). Be prepared for some sunshine, but also grey days and rain.

Great Cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We enjoyed our cruise on the Getaway. We wish we would of had more time in each of the ports. Each city had so many things to see and do. The tours do not give you much free time to shop or look around. We did like each of the tours we picked though. I highly recommend doing the Exclusive tours in St. Petersburg. We had very knowledgable tour guides and get off the ship quicker. It was nice just having around 12 people on those tours.
