Welcome to the Faux Gem!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
We took the Gem last February also. Sadly the shows were exactly the same. Same improv (Second More City) I knew all the skits. Amazing for improv!!!!!!!!!The Chocolate Goddess of Love. Same show. And of course "The Juggler" who could miss that show???????Unless you were into Hypnotist and ventriloquist-NOT!!!!!!The production show were very well done.(3 shows with the same cast). I really think a cruise was a good value BUT the Norwegian Lines are really into nickel&diming the passengers and quite frankly I am tired of it. The best they are offering is leaving from New York in winter and free styling. Less
Cabin review: bal
Balcony is useless. Only room for chair. You cannot get any sun at all. very small. We also had wind gushing noises which had to be addressed. We had a wonderful balcony on Holland America where you could lay out and sun. Much better.
