Very good on board staff and service... but the bahamas outings were limited and not that out of the ordinary... was hoping for more.

Pros: Fabulous service on board

Cons: rip off excursion...

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
submarine tour got cancelled due to weather.. they wanna charge 39 for shopping tour which if you pay for private van cost 5 bucks per person each way.....
Nassau, Bahamas
transparent kayaking ... is not as good as they claim to be... told option to snorkel but they ask for 20 bucks more for the motor underwater scooter... which was essential considering the strong current.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
beautiful island... snorkeling is so so though
Port Canaveral, Florida
NASA was pleasant... go for the cheaper option... not that big a deal to pay 50 bucks more... you won't have the time anyway
