Beautiful Diamond Falls in St. Lucia

This was the perfect itinerary with 7 ports in the beautiful Caribbean! Everything was top notch- fabulous Norwegian Gem and her crew. We enjoyed the specialty dining venues and the entertainment. Our cabin steward Lincey Mitchell was outstanding! He had everything ready for before we could even ask. The washy-washy crew always greeted with a smile and a kind word. There was never crowd and plenty of seating for all the shows. We are always impressed by the quality of shows Norwegian presents. The casino was kind ;) this cruise too. It was busy but you could always find a machine you wanted to play.

The only disappointment was the walk off disembarkation. Instead of lining up around the seventh floor like we have done on other Norwegian ships, they had us go to the Bliss Lounge. No order what so ever! People became quite aggressive about their position in the imaginary line. It left a very bad taste in our mouths after such a wonderful trip. Norwegian- you need to correct this. The walk off is very convenient but you must have someone there to keep order And the peace.
