Most amazing vacation

Sail Date: June 2013
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

This was our first Cruise, and we were kind of worried about being around 2000 plus people with no place to go,boy were we wrong. The ship offered plenty of space to getaway from it all......but we found ourselves having so much fun being around all those fellow cruisers. The Pool area was lively and so much fun. Our Cabin had a lot of space, we stayed in a Mini Suite on Deck 11 11058

and it was spacious and very well kept. Our room Stewart was great he knew what we needed before we even said anything.

The best was our CD Sinan he is amazing and we fell that he made our Cruise the best.....what a funny guy and his crew, amazing. We cant wait to book our next cruise with NCL just have to figure out when where too etc.

We book the excursions with NCL and had no complains. I am sure one could nick pick and find something wrong somewhere, but we just enjoyed our self's to much that we didn't notice anything. The Crew on The Gem amazing and so hard working and More always with a smile.

I realize that this was our first cruise and don't have anything to compare it to.....but to us this was the best vacation ever. Thank you NCL and Thank you Sinan you are the best. Less

Cabin review: Norwegian Gem 11058

Great balcony. Plenty of space in closet. Our two suitcases fit in our closet, carry one under our bed, plenty of drawer space. Flat Screen TV maybe 27" Coffeemaker, a save with plenty of room. The bathroom was spacious, with a separated Toilet. We loved our Cabin and our bed was very comfy.It has a small fridge,just ask your Cabin Steward to empty it for you, so you can fit your water or soft drinks in it.We never had any issues with noise. Cabin 11058 Midshiff.

Port and Shore Excursions


great fun....please wear water shoes.....lots of rocks in the water.......BBQ was set up by NCL good food and Music, small shopping Village set up on the Island, plenty of chairs available. We went Jet Skiing ad Parasailing well worth the money, we had a blast.
If you book your excursion ahead of time and your ticket is also your tender ticket to the Island.
