January 2016 - 10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Gem
fine cruise except for the dinning
One of the main thing you look forward to on a cruse is the dinning. The main complementary restaurants were very slow to serve waiting sometimes 45 min. before your order is taken, Dinner always took at least 2 hours. The portions were on the small side and the quality was way below the standard you expect. The menu also had 3 meals that had a charge, never say this before,seems to me you already payed for the meals and now they want you to pay again.
The specialty restaurant also have change with a la carte menu however the quality was far superior to the complementary restaurant. All the other aspects of the cruise were what you would expect.
