A Wonderful Cruise! (18+ group)

Jul 18th, 2019

My family and I have nothing but good things to say about Norwegian Getaway. It was the first time we all went on 18 and over (meaning no one had a chance to check out the teen club). Embarkation was pretty easy now that specific check in times have been adopted. We even had photographers joke around and take pictures WITH us as we waited. Furthermore, I had people in my party that were gluten intolerant and vegan. There were several servers that tried their best, and even went out of their way to accommodate them! Especially in O’Sheehans and the Noodle Bar!

Ok not great

Pick a different line. Having sailed others and NCL I was surprised how much I felt like NCL couldn’t be bothered with customer service. They sell themselves as a higher level cruise line but they did not live up to it on this cruise.

Excellent Baltic Cruise

Jul 12th, 2019

The bartender, Pavin Sankpal , made going to the bar or anywhere he was, extra fun. He has missed his calling of being an entertainer! The food was great and wide variety. Our cabin and the ship in general was always clean( an awesome feat with over 4000 passengers). We’d do this cruise again in a heartbeat! Disregard the negative reviews about the Getaway, and give it a chance. You won’t be sorry.

Superb NCL cruise!

Jul 8th, 2019

We loved the NCL Getaway and the friendly, kind staff! This is a LARGE ship, and thus there are plenty of things to do, especially during the days at sea such as the casino, trivia games, and shows...we loved the food/meal options, and tried them all. The excursions were a bit pricey, but very, very good!

Baltic Sea - Better than expected

Jul 8th, 2019

Never paid for a drink with the adult liquor package (base brands included Tito's, J.Walker, Tangueray and many others). Internet was bad in the room (download 1MB per minute). Less than half were Americans on board. Older crowd.

Wonderful. Need more details about ports.

Overall it’s a great trip. The cruise line has great customer service and station room cleaning staff. Need improve communication about port address and provide bus or free shuttle information.
