You really can't compare the Gem to the Allure. Totally different markets. The Allure caters to families with their amusement park atmosphere. The Gem doesn't offer those. She can't. The Allure is almost twice the size ( I think ) 2600pax vs 5000pax. Something like that. Also, did you take the Gem out of NY ? Do you live in / near NY ? You have to fly to Florida to pick up the Allure. The Gem gave you 10 days. There is plenty to do, you just have to look sometimes. That's why you get the Freestyle Times nightly.
I agree though, NCL should have a coffee package, or include it in the beverage package.
You do have to remember that many passengers complain that there is nothing to do late at night on ships. But, I am with you. I sometimes also pass on late evening activities just because they start so late. Lots of passengers get bored with sea days but i am not one of them. I enjoy the free time to do whatever i want. Thanks for posting. I enjoyed reading all your comments.
