August 2016 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Bahamas
This was our first Cruise and we did not know what to really expect. I spoke to a few people who gave their expertise. I wanted to see for myself this Cruise thing that every one seems to be beefing over. We embarked from the New York City, Pier 88 at 55th Street and 12th Avenue. I am a New Yorker. I find it unnecessary to fly from NY to where ever to board a ship. It was very important ant to me to leave from NY.
Before the trip, I checked out where to park the car verses renting a spot at home in the Bronx due to alternate side parking will be on the days when we would be home. The cost of a taxi cab going to the ship and returning home. It was better to park at the ship port. There was a 25% coupon offered to passengers who were Cruising with the Norwegian Gem. The price for the seven days was $220.00 dollars. The lot is opened with enough spaces between each car. The Terminal Attendees were available to assist with the luggage. The usually Security and Apparatus was in placed. This is a secure place. There were no damages to my car. I will utilize this facility again.
