10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 02, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

the overall boat is ok, the Rock Wall was closed , as well as the other end of ship sun Deck

the pool deck was so crowded that you had to step on your chair to get in the seat, then they were putting apoxy on the sun deck that was closed right above the pool area when in port the smell made you sick. the food is nothing like carnival Carnival much better. and you sit at the same table each night so your wait staff gets to know your likes. The shows were just ok again much better shows on carnival even the  same ones i saw 3 times. Also the staff in the dinning room are a little pushy getting you to a table, so you can wait.

People were nice, customer service really dose not care , they just say oh so sorry.

Norwegian was to be said to be a step above Carnival and Royal I have been on both and will go back , Not Norwegian.. I cruise about every 6-8 months  and love it .. even if i just stay on board.
