10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 13, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 8596
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The length of this cruise, the ports, and the cruise line were all wonderful.  The only reason for 4/5 was the slight dip in service due to a very new staff on the ship.  Some wait time times at restaurants, even when seated, were longer than usual.  We also had to remind staff to provide us with our latitudes benefits (chocolates at night, discounts, etc).  However, aside from needing some assistance the crew was wonderfully friendly and accommodating.  The entertainment, even in some rough seas, was amazing.

El Jibarito has the best Mofungo in Old San Juan. Stop in for a bite.

All beaches are free! Unless you want to pay to go to a more exotic beach, just grab a beach towel and water taxi and have some free fun.

Book a shore excursion or you will be bored.
