least favorite cruise we've taken

Sail Date: May 29, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

too large a ship with too many children and not enough pool accessability for the number of guests on the ship

Pros: cabin steward was great, Leo the guitar player outstanding, some of the other entertainment

Cons: the decor, the number of children, the size of the ship, the freestyle dinner seating

Recommends Norwegian Gem? No.

Ship Quality
the decor was hideous, the pool area too small for the number of guests on the ship, when we docked in Bermuda it was an hour and a half bus ride to get to the part of the island we wanted to see
Cabin / Stateroom
the bed was very uncomfortable, bring a bar of soap as the shower and sink only offer liquid soap dispensers, room was clean and attractive, only news other than BBC was Fox news, major inconvenience
some of the entertainment was excellent, some fair at best, didn't care for crying babies while trying to hear the entertainment
Food and Dining
food was good, didn't care for the first come first served dinner service, the buffet was always an option, main dining room was attractive
Service and Staff
King's Wharf, Bermuda
crystal caves is a must see, restaurant prices are very high, used to be Bermuda's main industry was tourism, now it is the banking and insurance industries and it shows...
Don't Miss: crystal caves
