7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 07, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship needs a renovation - chairs were filthy, carpeting was dirty, beds were creaky. So not good!

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was really not good at all. And both dining rooms had basically the same menu! I expected far better.


3 out of 5
Variety of entertainers were really good and enjoyable. The best part of the vacation.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
Everytime I tried to drop my son off for an event\, the schedule had changed and they had already done it even though we were there directly before the time the event should have occurred.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The staff for the cabins were very polite. A little less in the dining areas.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Bathroom\, although the set up was nice\, was entirely too small. The door had to be open to dry up after a shower.

Pros: The entertainment

Cons: The food\, the fact that everything was extra\, the kids club schedule changes\, the ancient ship\, etc. etc.

Recommends Norwegian Gem? No.
