Besties First Cruise!!!
Norwegian Gem Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Review summaryMy experience on the Gem was wonderful. Was my first cruise ever and I cant wait to do it again! Everything from embarkation to service, amenities, staff, activities, ports of call, was enjoyable and hassle free. Not once did I encounter a bad experience. Only little hiccup we had was that we had free wifi minutes included with our package and at first it charged us the full amount, internet manager resolved it and credited our minutes with no questions ask. Everyone offered excellent customer service and some even make a point to remember your name! Overall it was a wonderful experience, and I am looking forward to cruising on other Norwegians cruises and destinations.
Food and Dining
Magenta Main Dining Room
Nice dinning room, 3 course meal, nice services.
Topsiders Bar and Grill
Open food bar, excellent drinks
Loved the buffet. Specially for breakfast. Food was great and had all sort of choices. Only thing I didn't like is that they made two-three different soups a day and never once made your good old chicken noodle soup.
Was good, got our offer through a casino and they comps us all drinks. We had the Ultimate Beverage Package, however, it doesn't include water or energy drinks. But because our cruise offer was tru a casino, the casino bar offered these non alcoholic drinks for free to us as well. Good service, not long waits.
Spend a lot of time on the pool deck, two bars and smoking area as well. You can get food and drinks at the bar or even have some bring you drinks at the pool or hot tub. Lots of times there was a life band or DJ. Overall a very enjoyable experience specially on days at sea
Was a great experince. Received a ladies pamper massage for 75 min and I was in heaven! A must try if you can spend the extra cash
They were okay, water was never really hot more like luke warm. they can get full quickly but overall is nice spending the morning in the hottub while sailing away
Bliss Ultra Lounge
Was great source of entertainment.Early evening was karaoke and late night was a DJ. Had fun from singing to dancing. DJ was always open to music request
