Verified Review
10 Night Eastern Canada & Quebec (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 30, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship was pretty, show room and dining areas nice, but the balcony cabins were the smallest I have ever seen. Seems like everything had an extra charge...movies in your cabin, $5.00 for pizza, specialty restaurants that were free on the Jewel, many activities. Bingo prices were $39-$59 to play a game with a payout of under $150. Felt like we were being nickel and dimed to death. Entertainers were very good. Stop at Corner Brook was a big waste of time...nothing to do there.

Food and Dining

Ran out of food before the end of the cruise...butter packets\, fresh fruit\, milk cartons.
