10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 21, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 9515
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Everything ran smoothly, but wasn't outstanding to recommend. Not enough to do during sea days. I wish there were more activities to do on sea days. Even quiet areas were hard to find because those spaces were being used. Charging for bingo and movies and anything else to do is tacky. Other options were to buy tanzanite?? Holland America cruises have so many FREE activities that there isn't enough time to do them all.

Ship Tip

Restos fairly priced. Not enough to do on sea days. The activities that were available consisted of attending seminars for buying items. Movies should be free. Not enough quiet spaces. Spa prices outrageous. Shining part is the staff, best part of the trip.
