Norwegian Gem

February 2016 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

Loved every minute

First time with NCL Customer service great all staff were polite and helpful Loved the food So much choice BBQs Buffets and resturants Presentation excellent loved the Buffet specials The ships décor was really nice loved the waterfall effects in Bliss and the rolling wave carpet in Spinnaker Grand Pacific looked and felt 1920s I had done my homework and read many reviews before booking I know everyone has different tastes Definitly would not book in school holidays as too many kids I prefer relax We left New York had 3 days at sea which I loved I love being on the water the activities didn't really interest us but there was plenty to do if you wanted The pool area was really nice but such loud music from the bands we dipped in and out then went elsewhere ie outside garden café my favourite place with bar buffet and beautiful views and relaxing any time of day At night lit up with soft blue lights

Shame about the loud music by pool I like music and I like going for a dip but I don't want to be deafened by doing it Should have a quiet time in afternoon Many people like loud music but many don't also softer music would have been nice sometimes instead of waiting for the band to have a break Would definitely advise Beverage package even if you are tee total like me 2 drinks a day and you have your money back I loved the ice cream float drinks Kerwin made at Garden Café Dining package was included in our price as well two were disappointing but so much choice couldn't visit all Excursions expensive prefer book ourselves from the tourist info areas much cheaper I would have given 5 stars if I didn't have those small but important negative points Would we go again You bet

Cruiser929's Tips

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Took a zodiac boat trip from ashore to well known beach where the airplanes landed about 1and half hours Again we walked into town nice beach loys of little shops
New York, New York - We arrived day before so caught a passenger ferry boat to view Statue of Liberty
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Turn left at port take a casual walk along the broadwalk by the waters edge to the fort its not far lots of flowers to see birds diving into the water and a few points of interest en route
Norwegian Gem Norwegian Gem - From my view Excursions were expensive can find from tourist info centres ashore So much food choice paying extra for restaurant not a neccessity but drinks package is a must Don't book in school holidays this doesn't mean no kids just hopefully not so many Take ear plugs if you wish sit by pool
Tortola, British Virgin Islands - Not much time here Shame Take a island trip great views Info desk close to port The town itself is dusty as building work going on when finished will be nice
