7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 29, 2008
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago

While we generally liked the ship and the cabin, the service level was less than average, lines everywhere. It was a challenge to find a seat in the cafe. Buffet hours were inconvinient. The freestyl cryising did not really work.
Entertainment was average. We had to pay for almost everything. It seems that it is getting worse with every year.

We had to use the specialty restaraunts with cover charge. It seemed that they could not manage the number of passengers they had.
