eastern carribean on the GEM

Sail Date: April 21, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Everything on the GEM was great, the food, service, entertainment, etc. However just be wary to stay away from the casino. It was really a downer. Everyone I spoke to lost mega bucks and after playing there for several days with absolutely no payback, I found their renovations of this part of the ship to  be less than satisfactory. There wasn't even one taker for a hold em cash game.

Cabin / Stateroom
a little tight in the closet/dressing table area. It was set up a different way than we're used to and my 6'5" guy and myself couldn't get ready at the same time.
