The price was a great deal. First time ever to have an inside room it was ok except for being at front of ship. Able to feel more rocking, rolling & noises of the ship. Besides this everything else was amazing. The 2 specialty restaurants we booked were above expectations. We were treated like royalty, mind you every restaurant we ate at we were treated like royalty even the buffet. Each island was better than the last. The volcano excursion of St. Lucia was unforgettable. So easy to walk off the ship & find a beach to relax on for the day was perfect. I wish we could have spent more time at Puero Rico. Meeting the senior crew staff was wonderful through Cruise Critic meet & greet. Entertainment around the ship & in StarDust theater was remarkable & always enjoyed the evenings on the GEM Now that we are platinum level it is great to get the extra perks. We have not traveled with any other cruise lines but NCL treats us so special we do not want to try any others. Thanks for the great trip

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin IC 10019
Booked this because of the price but NCL would not let me upgrade (even paying for it) when prices dropped within 2 weeks of departure. I think some leeway should be allowed for this. Even with bidding we should be informed immediately that we did not qualify. I will never book an inside again no matter the price. We love the sights & sounds of the ocean.
