Norwegian Gem

October 2017 - 11 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Gem

Norwegian Breakaway

October 2016 - 7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

A Simple Getaway

Because of our schedules being so hectic, my husband and I could only go on vacation the week of October 30, 2016.  We booked NCL Breakaway because we enjoy the amenities and good times NCL provides.  We knew the ship was large but not until we boarded did we realize how big it was. 

First, the Breakaway is a family oriented ship.  There were lots of strollers and kids. While there were couples, there seemed to be more families.

Second:  Could not figure why with nearly 4,000 people on board, they would build a ship with a very small swimming pool.  The pool did not have a ramp to go in and out so me, having a disability could not use the pool.

Third:  Service on the ship was somewhat lacking as there was a definite language barrier.  A few of us resorted to writing our drink orders out and they were still wrong.  The servers and bartenders did not seem very happy and it showed in their work.

While we did not travel with a group, we did meet and hang with others and we all commented on the same issues. 

While we still love NCL, the big ships are for others. We are going back to the Gem for good and will arrange our schedules accordingly.

Norwegian Gem

October 2015 - 10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Gem

Wonderful Birthday Cruise

From the time we stepped onto the Gem, we were treated in such an excellent manner it was the perfect way to start a vacation.  Our requests were met with the quote, "Right away, no delay."  I was celebrating my 60th Birthday and the staff and crew made this trip extra special.  This was our 4th cruise in the Gem and we are now looking to book our next.
