The entertainment was excellent, most activities were good, but the games such as Trivia, Game shows, etc. were poorly run by the Activities Staff. We were disappointed that some activities cost extra. The bingo cost seemed excessive.

Don't take the horse and carriage ride. You take your life in your hands with careless drivers pulling you through busy streets.

The line for the buffet was ridiculous. Surely this could be better managed.

Loved Cocoa Beach. It was beautiful with just enough amenities in the area to walk to.

Pros: Entertainment, service, decor of ship, cabin.

Cons: Food not up to standards of previous cruises we've taken, both on NCL and other lines. Buffet areas very crowded and cramped.

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!
