February 2016 - 10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Gem
Great ship, but learn to schedule when not a holiday for children
The ship was beautiful very clean, staff very attentive . The only complaint I would mention is the number of children on this cruise. They were running around unsupervised and loud. The television in rooms was very small and no channels that gave us happenings in the states other than election news all day.
The shows were great and every night we had a different show , the restaurant food had a good selection each evening as well.
The auto gratuity I feel is something that should be added to the price of the cruise up front and not after you had scheduled the cruise. I myself pay those attendants that service me such as room stewards and host and waitstaff.
