This is a new ship and it is beautiful and the price was right. Getting on the ship was pretty fast if you don't stop to take a cruise pic. First impression of inside of ship was wow very nice. We went to buffet for lunch it was just ok noting special like Carnival or RCCL lines what I'm use to. Made it to cabin stated where's the 3rd closet and extra storage space. There was a foul smell coming ...

About the Reviewer: I’m a 37-year-old male who sailed with his mother to celebrate her milestone birthday. This was my second MSC Cruise, my first being on the MSC Seaside in October 2018 (there’s a review for that voyage as well). However, this sailing I was celebrating a milestone of my own as this was my 47th cruise overall and my accomplishment was hitting a full year of my life at sea! Other ...

Have spent about 75 days on 8 cruises with 5 cruise lines. This was by far the worst in our experience. Food: Went to the Brazilian steak house Moderno and would only recommend the pineapple and beef ribs. I had the crazy idea they would serve steak from Brazil. Thank God we ate at a specialty restaurant early on as the buffet was better and didn't charge. I lost 4 pounds in 4 ...

We got such a great deal, that we could not pass it up. This cruise was our first experience with the Specialty Dinning. It was nice, but not sure it is worth the extra expense. Still do not not care for the Freestyle Dinning. We prefer to have the same wait staff and table. We have found on previous cruises a wait staff that We liked and would request their area. This time there seemed to be a ...

We choose this cruise because the price was cheap (33 % off money on pair ) . When we get on the ship we were terefy about the price of Beer and the wine . They charged us 15 $ for opening my bottle of wine . ( i did not bring it to dinning room ) it was a twist cap and i opened by my self . I try the talk with the Hotel Director but he was too busy whit his family on the ship. The guest ...

Great Cruise with Slight Disappointment

My wife and I chose this cruise because it was sailing close to where we lived (Delaware). Had a terrible time the first day at sea because of sea sickness. I guess you hit rough waters from New York but it gets better once you get to the Caribbean side. We enjoyed the variety of food on cruise, however, we were very disappointed with the Orchid Garden. First time the food was Ok. We thought may ...

We had a wonderful cruise made so especially by the activities staff and the Webb Band and overall smiling faces of the staff. We chose this cruise because it was going to islands we had yet to visit. When we cruise, we dance, attend every show in the main theater, and try to take part in as many activity events as we can. So these are most important to us. The activity staff was wonderful and ...

We were on a 12 day cruise. Food was completely terrible. Itinerary activities were awful....we literally walked around bored. My daughter was very excited to join the kids club. She went twice...again, no activities at all. Freestyle play is plenty. Service was pretty terrible around the ship. Restaurant dining took no less than 1.5 hrs and up to 2.5 hrs. Restaurants close at certain ...

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 ...

We like Norwegian and it works with the schedule we have. Have been on the Gem before but feel she needs a refurbishing. Carpets were worn in many areas - the transition of caret from stairs to next level was deceiving, had to be really careful did not miss the step and fall. It was obvious that our cabin had a problem since over my bed the ceiling was black and had some of the ceiling material ...
