Nice Getaway

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

We've cruised NCL 7 times in the past 5 years.  This was our second time on the Gem, last was in 2012.  Overall we had a good time.  Food was great, specialty restaurants great.  Entertainment was pretty good.  Second City needs to change up its act.  Last 3 years the skits haven't changed.  Switch it up each year.  There's enough material in the world to keep the show fresh.  Also a bit disappointed with the removal of the bowling alley.  I, as wwll as the kids enjoyed it.  We have been a bit spoiled sailing on larger ships like the breakaway but overall nice getaway.
