We had the best time on our Norwegian cruise to the Bahamas. The staff on the Gem work so hard keeping the ship clean. Gugu kept our room clean and was always around when we needed him. Norwegian's private Island stirup Cay was beautiful they had even had a barbecue. The food at the Asian specialty restaurant was a complete waste of money The shows were really good, some were like broadway shows. My 6 year old absolutely loved splash academy he couldn't wait to go each day. The food was great at the start of the cruise towards the end its was just okay. I wouldn't recommend going to the aquarium at paradise Island it was to small for what they charge. You can find really nice free beaches in the bahamas We came back to New York relaxed, rested and tanned.

shopping at the straw market was fun. If you want to go to paradise island you can take a ferry or bus for just 4.00
