Norwegian Gem...Caribbean (eastern) 9 N

Sail Date: October 28, 2013

Room Type: Balcony

Cruised wasn't my first. The ship was a good size & enjoyed the balcony stateroom..Especially enjoyed the free style cruising, since I like to be causal on vacation & not have to dress up formal for meals, all the time. It's your choice to do so or not. Very nice Spa area & quiet areas also and our state room attendent was very attentive.

The entertainment was excellent, as well as the cruise director/ cast members. Halloween was a blast on board....passsengers really went all out  with customes...very enjoyable to watch.

 Because it was a 9 N cruise, it was nice to have the 4 ports to break up the sea days, but because of the extra sea days it makes the trip more relaxing..... so you didn't feel like you were rushed back to port on the return trip.

Food was good, can't complain had worse on other cruises, but would recommend changing dinning experiences up, because if you only do the buffet , it can become redundant.

Overall the price for the cruise  for the amount of days was worth it....but remember this time of the year in the Caribbean  isn't always hot & plan accordinly, the tropics are also very humid & rainy.

Overall....another smooth cruise :)

If you have a balcony....just be careful with sliding doors. You can get locked outside.
