My Take - The Good and the Bad

This was out 9th cruise with NCL (40th overall). Other reviews for this cruise were bad and deservedly so. There are some areas where I disagree and I will state them here. DINING: This was a bit hit and miss. We thought the paid specialty restaurants were excellent with great food and service (we generally ate around 5-5:30). We went to Cagneys (3), Teppanyaki (3), La Cucina (2) and Moderno ...

Cruise was chosen for the Itiniary. The ship was a disappointment. Nowhere to go for a quiet space. Lacking inside observation area. Noise everywhere, The open area from the atrium up to OSheehans, so noisy you could hardly have a conversation. Lines, lines, lines everywhere. Food was fair, nothing to rave about. The specialty restaurants, Cagney’s and Italan I rate as ok, nothing ...

Fun itinerary but a ship full of missteps

WE choose this cruise because of the interesting itinerary. Been on lots of NCL cruise and this ship was so flawed. NOW the smoke issue. The ship is stale with smoke and there were not that many people smoking now. The Casino is in the middle of the ship and the smoke goes everywhere on Deck 6,7, and 8. You can't go to most restaurants in the area without the smell of smoke. SO ...

Stayed at the Marriott Copenhagen for 5 nights. 5-10 min walk to Tivoli Not close to any restaurants so we ate breakfast at the Marriott. No decaf coffee found in Copenhagen. Due to dietary restrictions, I cannot have caffeine. I chose this transatlantic cruise because of the itinerary. Pros: midship balcony room well maintained. Steward was pleasant and efficient. ...

Very crowded, lack of attention to basic management

We selected this cruise because I was attending a watercolor workshop. I enjoyed the course thoroughly. However, the location the ship provided was in a dark club painted black with limited lighting, their staff assisted us to have tables under the best lighting fixtures. The ship is very large and lacks good and quiet areas around the ship to just read and relax. In fact, at the last refit a ...

Going to Normandy and visiting the cemetery was awe inspiring.

We chose this cruise to visit places we had never been. We spent extra time in Copenhagen and enjoyed our visit there. The ship was very nice, clean and well maintained and all of the crew were gracious and helpful. The restaurants on the ship were good but the food in the buffet was so good that we chose to eat in the buffet most of the time. The excursions are not worth the money or ...

I have wanted to do a transatlantic crossing and this itinerary was outstanding. I traveled with two friends. We left home on Wednesday morning and arrived in Copenhagen around noon on Thursday after three flights and a sleepless night. Copenhagen is a great city to explore and I definitely recommend at least a couple of days to explore. We opted for the Hop on Hop Off bus which made it easy to ...

NCL DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ITS PASSENGERS

Review for Norwegian Getaway to Transatlantic

User Avatar

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

It was obvious that NCL management cares only about how much money they can make. For example, the ship stopped in Miami for only a few hours and took on fuel and provisions there. Every passenger had to go through Customs and Immigration and the line took a minimum of three hours to get off and back on. Then they blamed Customs for the delay when the stop was obviously only to benefit the ...

19 day re-positioning cruise Copenhagen to New Orleans. Staff, cabin stewards, bar staff all excellent and helpful. Management was terrible from top to bottom. Free Style was a joke as there were lines everywhere and you had to make reservations. Every docking ended with long lines. Unecessary stop in Miami was short and entailed a 4 hour wait in the terminal. Every question to Guest Services ...

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 ...
