9 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 08, 2014
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 11546
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 4 years ago

I went on a 9 night cruise with two friends.  We had a mini suite which worked out fine for us.  We had a good time.  The boat could use some spucing up -- it is getting a little tierd looking.  Food was good, entertainment was super. The only thing we did not care for was the stop in Samana, Domincan Republic.  If you did not go to the beach there was not much to do.  We walked around the town and did not feel safe because the vendors kept following us and pressuring us to buy thier wares.  We would have preferred to have a stop in one of the other Caribbean islands or even in Key West.  I heard the same comment from many people on the boat.
