August 2015 - 7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Gem
Hits and misses
Overall it was worth it. Could have done without the Port Canaveral excursion. It was pointless. My room # 5110 was very spacious with a nice view out the window. The air conditioning system wasn't working good. My daughters room TV screen went blank on 3 separate occasions and had to wait for electrician to fix it. The ship itself needed some upgrades but they are dry docking it next month for upgrades. I was not aware that the lowest part of the pool was over 4 feet, not good for little kids aged 3-7 who cant swim. Bring swimmies or life jacket. Pool deck is very slippery when wet. I saw a few people fall. All the workers were very good at what they assigned to do. Of course Great Stirrup Cay was the highlight, especially with all the new upgrades that happened over the last few years. Nassau was good. Too pricey to go to atlantis and the private beaches that are near it were beautiful but be prepared to be annoyed constantly by the locals trying to rent out their services like parasailing, snorkeling, banana float rides, jet skiing. This all happens even when you're swimming. It's non stop. I heard Senor Frogs and Fat Tuesday were the place to go. Its a 10 minute walk from the ship. The ship was pretty good with all the activities going on.
