Norwegian Gem

7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)

Sail Date: November 29, 2008

Ship: Norwegian Gem

Cabin Type: Oceanview

Traveled As: Couple

Review Summary

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.
