Norwegian Gem
7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 12, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship was clean and in good condition. They charge you for everything including water. Charging for drinks when you are gambling in a casino is border line criminal. The change in the itinarey really put a damper on the trip only 4 hours in Universal Studios. The specialty restaurants were terrible except for the Brazilian Steakhouse. After being told that we could were dress shorts to Le Bisto by the reservation desk do to it being slow we were told to go change by the host, when we got inside there were several people with jeans and t-shirts. Cagney's steakhouse was horrendous, waited 45 minutes for a water at the table. Finally this was advertised as a Nickelodeon Cruise which is a complete joke they had some small activities for kids and showed up once a day for arts and crafts for a half hour.
