Norwegian Gem

February 2016 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

Just average, to be honest.

The shows and activities on the ship were just terrible. Makes for a long few days at sea. People are allowed to "save" seats for each other on deck by placing a towel down, so its virtually impossible to find a seat in the sun unless you are brave enough to steal a spot. Food was good but the seating was minimal in the buffet area, also because people were reserving whole sections of the room for family members who weren't seated yet. Also, don't get me wrong... I love kids but the kids were always in the adult only hot tubs and parental supervision was minimal for sure. Drinks were perfectly made and absolutely delicious, if you didn't mind waiting 20 minutes for a drink.

Ports were fun but it was hard to navigate islands if you didn't book an excursion from the ship.

kwampler's Tips

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - best place ever. Exceeded our expectations by far. Short walk to the beach and wonderful shops. skip the water taxi. Just walk. takes the same amount of time.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Pretty much a dingy dumpy city but fun at least. print map of San Juan before you get on cruise.
Norwegian Gem Norwegian Gem - Bring a book. and bring playing cards so you're not bored. trust me. they do have a game room, but its small and always packed. GET THE DRINK PACKAGE!! Well worth it, especially when I drank when I was bored. haha! Stay away from the buffet when possible. Seating minimal and restaurants are delish!
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Print map before you cruise. Better than San Juan, but beaches were just ok. Magen's Bay is overrated, and felt like a lake at home.
