Norwegian Gem

April 2016 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

great time on the gem

 after a cruise on the breakaway last year we said no more ncl, but we gave them another chance. the gem is a very nice ship, the crew is friendly and helpful. it is not so big so it is easy to get around. the food was fine , however the buffet food was not very hot. it never seemed to crowded in the buffet.loved the shows, tim kaminiski is SO funny on and off the stage.all the ports were nice , wish we had more time in tortola .only negative was the totally out of control kids everywhere at all hours.parents seemed to just let them do what they wanted all cruise. this was not pleasant.overall the gem has renewed our interest in ncl and we would cruise with them again.

Norwegian Breakaway

October 2015 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

one and done

 the list of positive things about the breakaway is a short one. the crew is nice , the food was better than expected,and the cabin was very nice. the rest of the cruise not so good. its way to crowded, there are only two sets of elevators so you have long walks to everything.the atrium is way to small for the way they try to use it, the pool is too small and there is no room around it.you have to reserve every show you want to see. so much for being freestyle!we have been on many ships on several lines and have never said we would not go on a ship again, until now. tendering was a disaster and disembarkation was the worst. it took hours to get off and we were ez walk off.breakaway no way!

Norwegian Dawn

July 2013 - Norwegian Dawn to Bermuda

family fun on dawn

Embarkation went quite smoothly, no long lines but we we were early 11:45 or so. On the plus side: the food was outstanding, the crew was great!! The Reggae band was great! The entertanment was good. Alex and Sally were amazing! Second City was very funny! Cruise Director Gio was one of the best we have seen. The dawn is showing her age in some places. I know they have spent tons on upgrading but really ladies room doors on deck 12 that don't close; deck 13 had toilets with NO water in them and very extremely loud when flushed. Then another day there was water in the hallway and water on the floor on deck 13. The automatic from pool to Garden Cafe was not working right. Door would not open unless you waved your hand in front. People were walking into the closed door expecting it to open. We notified personnel of the issue but nothing was done. The band out by the pool needs improvement. They could not sing. They did instrumentals really well. Bermuda was very hot, sunny and beautiful! The ferrys have been upgraded and are now air conditioned! The buses are easy to use, the people were all helpful and polite. The water was incredibly warm, beaches were beautiful. Did Hartley's Helmet Dive; don't miss it. You have to book it on your own.

AnitaJ4's Tips

Norwegian Gem Norwegian Gem - the great outdoors on deck 12 is a real nice place to hang out
Emerald Princess Emerald Princess - there are plenty of places on the ship to relax and find quite time.
Nassau, Bahamas - straw market is fun to haggle with vendors to think you got a good buy
Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - unless you like huge lines and crowds and lots of noise and getting nickle and dimed for most everything stay away!
Norwegian Dawn Norwegian Dawn - Make it a point to hunt out Keith from Jamaica. He is very entertaining and a delight at the Garden Cafe for breakfast and Aqua at dinner.
Boston, Massachusetts - no easy ascess anywhere from port. must take tour on local buses. not hard but there is nothing withen walking distance of ship.
Newport, Rhode Island - very busy sea side town. many areas that can be reached by foot. public buses very easy to use and not expensive.
Bar Harbor, Maine - quiant little new england town, acadia park is a must see.loop buses aroud acaida park are free and very good
