Just average, to be honest.
Norwegian Gem Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: February 11, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 4575
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago
The shows and activities on the ship were just terrible. Makes for a long few days at sea. People are allowed to "save" seats for each other on deck by placing a towel down, so its virtually impossible to find a seat in the sun unless you are brave enough to steal a spot. Food was good but the seating was minimal in the buffet area, also because people were reserving whole sections of the room for family members who weren't seated yet. Also, don't get me wrong... I love kids but the kids were always in the adult only hot tubs and parental supervision was minimal for sure. Drinks were perfectly made and absolutely delicious, if you didn't mind waiting 20 minutes for a drink.
Ports were fun but it was hard to navigate islands if you didn't book an excursion from the ship.
Food and Dining
hit up the gym a few times, and enjoyed it, one we got to warmer weather and not so rocky.

Bring a book. and bring playing cards so you're not bored. trust me. they do have a game room, but its small and always packed.
GET THE DRINK PACKAGE!! Well worth it, especially when I drank when I was bored. haha!
Stay away from the buffet when possible. Seating minimal and restaurants are delish!
