7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 18, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship was definitely older. And the food must have been too. It was sub-par and nothing to write home about. None was fresh. Stateroom was small, smaller than average (I've taken at least 8 cruises on multiple ships). Bartenders were cranky. Both of my excursions got cancelled and I wasn't given enough time to book something else. Took 3 days to see a manager about it.
