This was an epic adventure cruising around the Baltic, our journey started in Copenhagen where we boarded the Norwegian Getaway, the Getaway is a huge ship and very modern as it's only 3 years old, it weighs around 146 thousand tonnes and used 250,000 gallons of fuel during our voyage... ...and it's maximum capacity is just over 6,500 passengers and crew!
