7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 25, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 8112
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Food was generally good. Very friendly staff, although several bartenders seemed to be in their first job. Would have been nice to stay a little longer at the premier stops(Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay). Had to be back on board before 6:00 PM. Could have completely done without the Port Canaveral stop where we didn't have to reboard until 9. Too many unsupervised kids and kid related activities. 

Endless lines to wait in.

Mostly fantastic. Some of the bartenders were very slow and annoyed.

Cabin was nice and loved the large window. Our steward (Joao) was excellent!

Ship Tip

Very disappointed that the posted dress code in the Main dining room was not enforced! Opt for the beverage upgrade and be careful of the tax while at port.

Useless stop. Shopping at RonJons was the highlight.
