10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 12, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9626
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

I am 82 years old and my daughter gave me this cruise as  a present. I went with my friend for 10 days.

I was surprised to find out that room (even though it was balcony) was very small, the beds were literally attached one to another.

Everything is was for an additional "purchase" - all restaurants (unless you want to use the buffet), drink and even the entertainment. Activities were very poor and they were all concentrated toward get as much as possible money from people (i.e. bingo, comedies, etc). Food was OK

I think that Director of the NCL should really take a close look on what is going on. $1000 per person that my daughter paid was a lot of money and I would expect to have much better service and treatment.
