I chose the Norwegian Gem because: 1 - the cruise fit the exact dates of Spring Break and 2 - It was leaving from New York, so I didn't have to worry about air fare to Florida. Never having cruised the Norwegian Cruise Line ... Read more

This cruise was the perfect amount of time--four nights--and what made it really special was that we bought the Specialty Dining package for three nights. That meant we ate in the Palace Main Dining Room only one night which I must admit ... Read more

Chose this cruise because San Pedro is within easy driving distance so don't have a needless flight. Also, the UBP (beverage package) was a perk, probably what sealed the deal. Otherwise we could have taken another line or Holland American ... Read more

Great way to spend seven days on the sea and visit a few countries in the Caribbean. The food served on the ship was excellent, with many choices offered. Recommend you book early, before boarding, for speciality restaurants. Most of the ... Read more

I have been cruising with NCL since 1995 ( 16 Cruises to date ). I really like the laid back atmosphere of the cruises. I like the ability to eat when you want and freedom to do whatever. The NY port is convenient for parking at the ... Read more

It was a great trip. The Gem is a fine ship. The food was decent and sometimes excellent. The entertainment was very good, of course it wasn't all my favorite music. The shows were very good. I heard that the ship was sold out, so public ... Read more

If one wants to see several islands without having to pack up and move this is the way. Hawaii is beautiful, day and night. Cruising made getting around easy. The cruise itself was ok. Did NCL 3 day tour of Oahu before cruise. It was ... Read more

We chose Pride of America as it seemed to be the best and easiest way to see Hawaii and the islands. Getting on the ship was very easy and we were on just after 12.15 (lunchtime). However, we heard (after a few hours wait) they were doing ... Read more

We stayed in Barcelona for a couple of days before our cruise. This city is well worth a visit even though we've been a few times before. Embarkation was seamless. We were registering for key cards etc. at 10.20 am and 11.30 we boarded. ... Read more

We took a short cruise on the Sky last year and loved it, so we decided to try a longer cruise on a bigger ship. This cruise was perfect. There were a lot of people on board, but the ship never felt crowded. There was plenty to do, ... Read more
