7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 16, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 11092
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Norwegian Gem is a well-kept ship with all amenities within easy access to the passengers. Mini-suite not really worth the extra money compared to a balcony except for a slightly larger bathroom. Food was adequate and well presented. The professional theatre company was outstanding but some of the other acts were weak. Destinations in Fla. and the Bahamas are underwhelming but you know that going in. This is strictly a seven day getaway and leaving from New York, the ship was mostly populated with people from the northeast. Surprisingly, there were many children on the ship despite the fact that school was still in session. Would definitely recommend getting the drink package either as a perk if included or purchasing it.
