October 2013 - 9 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Gem
Left a lot to be desired
It rained at every island we were on and the ship wasn't geared or prepared for trying to occupy all the passengers time indoors hence, we were always looking for things to do. The ship's news letter contained daily errors, at least one or two things that were listed incorrectly or shouldn't have been listed at all because they weren't taking place. And finally, free style even extended to their main dinning room where you're normally assigned a time and a table but instead you were treated like you were going to a restaurant which didn't take reservations and you might have to wait up to 45 min, on one occassion to be seated. However the only place that you could make reservations were in their specialty restaurants with a fee, of course. Our balcony door didn't work correctly and we were locked out on the balcony one day and fortunately one of our neighbors were on their balcony and got someone to let us back into our cabin. We never closed the door all the way again, having nerver been told that they actually repaired the door. I won't be doing NCL again, any time soon and that was my 12th cruise.
