7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 12, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
We had a wonderful 7 day cruise to the Bahamas. The weather was beautiful throughout the week. The ship was well run. Everything was extremely well organized from entertainment, food to housekeeping. The staff was courteous and friendly. There were plenty of choices for food. We especially enjoy the private island Stirrup Cay. The water was a bit cold given the time of the year but just being on the beach was really nice.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was very good in general. The main dining room served high quality restaurant cuisines including steak, lobster and various fish dishes. The formal restaurants were classy.

Always friendly and courteous.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is only two years old and everything looked brand new and in excellent condition. There were plenty of comfortable lounges everywhere. Restaurants were very nicely decorated. Cleanliness was good.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Staterooms were very nice and comfortable. The beds were a little small though but that's to be expected on a ship.
