December 2015 - 10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Gem
Not What It Was
This cruise was very disappointing. The Gem just came out of dry dock with lots of changes. Here are the most egregious:
-- They got rid of all of the funky, fun furniture and replaced it with what looks like it should be in a doctor's office.
-- They cut back on activities; there's very little going on.
-- No more prizes for winning contests.
-- Much of the staff aloof and rude.
-- Staff sneezing in the buffet room without covering their mouths. I came home with a bad cold.
-- Really awful entertainment.
The best part of the trip was the guy who cleaned my room. He was awesome. I won't be sailing on the Gem again; that's for sure.
