7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 06, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

I would recommend the cruise to parents with children, not for single people, not for sphisticated travelers. If you would like to relax in a nice and quite atmosphere this cruise is not for you.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The specialty restaurants costs from $10-$25, so be prepared for extra expenses. Otherwise there is two sit-down restaurants and a crowded buffet.

The trips are expensive. Atlantis costs $120 from 12 and up, up to 10-years-old abot $80 (maybe it is better to buy the trip to Atlantis on the ship)

Pros: The spa, quite and no people

Cons: crowds, waiting in line to get to the restaurant, the food was OK but not great, no peace,

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!
