9 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 15, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 10509
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

A good selection of ports of call and shore excursions.  But there was not enough time in port and too much time at sea.  It would have been better departing from Miami rather than New York (and it would have had smoother seas and warmer weather also).  Great food and service.  Onboard entertainment could have been better.  The comedian and acrobatic team were great, but the others should have stayed in New York.

Jeff Harms was super. The husband/wife acrobatic team was great. The rest were forgettable.

Better than expected for an inside stateroom.

Ship Tip

The outdoor barbecues were a nice touch when the weather and seas permitted them.
