2 Night Cruise To Nowhere (Boston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 15, 2007
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 8 years ago
This being my first cruise I wasn't sure what to expect. I do know now that I would never even attempt a cruise during a Nor Eastor. That was insane, very rocky. It actually ruined the second day of the cruise. We made the best of the situation, but it seemed to be a bit much by Sunday night. We did enjoy the entertainment on the ship, that also helped to get our minds off the constant rocking. I definitely couldn't wait to get off the ship.
