Sail Date: Nov 2010
Cabin: Family Penthouse with Balcony
Traveled with children

We cruised with NCL for the first time in 2009 on the Dawn to Bermuda from NYC and loved it so much, we booked a 2nd cruise with NCL, this time on the Gem to FL and the Bahamas from NYC. Here's our review of our cruise on the Gem during Thanksgiving week 2010.

Travel Perspective: We travelled as an extended family this time instead of just as husband & wife. We were a group of 5 - husband, wife, 1 set of grandparents (cruised exclusively with HAL before) and 1 infant. We were in an AB (in 2009 on the Dawn, we were in an AD).
