Norwegian Gem

November 2013 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

Adjust your expectation

We were off to a bad start when the ship docked late and embarcation turned into a zoo!

The food was below expectation and when we said so to a senior member of the crew, we were asked if this was our first cruise and when told that it was out fourth, the reply was that we needed to "adjust our expectations".

Free style cruising is not for us: since the $12 a day per person was automatically added to the bill, our cabin staff did the minimum (one set of towels a day). The restaurant staff were barely adequate, there was no reason to "serve" since the incentive of end of cruise tip was not there.

The 2 1/2 days getting to warm weather and 2/1/2 days getting back are a waste of time... Better to take a flight to FL or PR and start there. Nothing to see in Samana DR unless you like seeing what abject poverty looks like.

 

This is the last time I go on NCL.
