11 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 27, 2014
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The food quality is lower each year. This year the Gem discontinued the once a cruise lobster dinner. The cruise before they discontinued the Rack of Lamb and Escargot.  It seems that they want to encourage you to go to their Speciality Restaurants at an additional price and according to their on board advertisement the Gratuity of $12.00 per day per person is not included in their Specialty Restaurants WHY?   If that is the case then the $12.00 per person per day should not be Mandatory since you are not using the services in the main dining room or buffet

Ship Tip

The prices in the ship store such as cigarettes and liquor are much higher then in ports. They discontinued most smoking areas on the ship including on the open deck where one side of the ship should be for smokers. They should have trays in the buffet as it is difficult to carry your food to tabl

San Juan, Puerto Rico Did not visit port

St Thomas USVI was great and included on this cruise

Tortola, British Virgin Islands Did not visit port
