Norwegian Gem

January 2017 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

Norwegian Gem Cruise Highlights

We had a nice relaxing cruise.  The downside was the food.  It seems as though  everytime we go on a Norwegian Cruise the food gets a little worse.   I'm sure they want passengers to eat in the specialty restaurants, which are much better.  The entertainment staff was great.  The shows they put on were good.  The comedians that they had such as second city were terrible.  The staff that ran the activities such as trivia etc. were great.  The ports were very good.

Carnival Sunshine

October 2016 - Carnival Sunshine to Canada, New England, New York

Our Carnival Sunshine Cruise

We enjoyed the food the most.  The activities were okay, but not great.  We saw one show that was very good.  it was a Motown show and was very well done.  The comedian was good too.  We went to the family shows.  They showed good movies, but only on deck and it was too cold to attend.  It would be a good idea to show them in the theater when there are no shows going on.  The service was excellent.

Liberty of the Seas

September 2015 - Liberty of the Seas to Canada, New England, New York

Canada New England Cruise on The Liberty of the Seas

The Liberty of The Seas is a very nice ship, however they do not know how to handle the 4000 of so quests that were onboard.  There are only 2 elevators, one at each end of the ship.  We always had to wait, sometimes even walking the steps when we couldn't get an elevator.  The theatre is too small and there was a mob scene every night we tried to see a show.  We saw someone pushed to the ground as a result of this.  There were no ship staff directing people.  We prepaid gratuities and were told we could have anytime dining.  When we arrived we found that this was not the case.  We were assigned to a table and they would not change it.  The Waiter and room steward we were assigned were great.  The service we were given in these areas was was very good.  We noticed that the food was not as good as on our last cruise.  They seem to be cutting down on activities on the ship as well.  After this cruise we will probably not book with Royal Caribbean again.

Norwegian Breakaway

December 2014 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

Norwegian Breakaway Christmas Cruise to the Bahamas

The Norwegian Breakaway is a beautiful ship.  It is very large, but easy to navigate around with the elevators positioned well.  We took the specialty dining package and the food was good.   Our favorite restaurant on the ship was Sheehan's Irish Pub for breakfast and lunch.

The Entertainment was too geared for adults only.  The cirque show was fabulous, but the shows in the theater were just okay.   The activities were okay, but there was not much variety  Our Grandson enjoyed the kids activities.

Also, the ship's stores were not great.  There wasn't enough variety or choice in the selections.   Overall I would recommend the ship, but not on a holiday cruise.

loupat's Tips

Norwegian Gem Norwegian Gem - The Gem is laid out very well. The elevators are good. No waiting. The lounges are very nice.
Carnival Sunshine Carnival Sunshine - The Italian Restaurant was great. The food at the buffet was very good and the selection was good. The dining room was not as good as the buffet. The Carnival Sunshine was not easy to maneuver. It was not laid out to be customer friendly. I have been on other Carnival Ships that were much bette
Liberty of the Seas Liberty of the Seas - Too large and congested. When the shops ran a sale on deck 5 you could not even get by.
Nassau, Bahamas - Having been to Nassau about 4 times, I think it is the worst port ever. The only thing in it's favor are the private resorts which are beautiful.
New York, New York - We arrived just before the cruise departed. No time for sightseeing.
