First some background. I'm in my early 60's GF in her late 50's. We are both experienced cruisers. We chose this cruise for the itinerary and it was my birthday. Ann Marie has never been to St. Thomas or Tortola (Lost Van Dyke). Nassau is ... Read more

After sailing on two Royal Caribbean cruises and one Disney we decided to try NCL. After reading reviews, this cruise had everything we wanted but we were concerned about the 'overcrowding'. We therefore stretched our budget and booked a ... Read more

We went on this cruise as part of a big group of friends. Being first timers, we weren't quite sure what to expect. I have to say we were quite pleased overall, and have already booked our next cruise. The Ship - Huge clean, and a wide ... Read more

I chose this ship because it was boasted as the newest ship in the fleet and after choosing the Getaway last time as the newest ship we thought we'd try the same process. Overall we were very happy with the ship! The only thing that we ... Read more

We travel on the Norwegian Escape from Miami to St Thomas, Tortola and Nassau, Bahamas. We didn't have a good experience this time ! Too much people, the small pools were too crowded and dirty (we found a big ball or hair in the ... Read more

This was my first time cruising along with my boyfriend and so we didn't want to pick a long cruise and we liked that the entire cruise was open bar. The buffet wasn't that great, but to be honest, that's how I feel about most buffets. ... Read more

I wanted a historical account of Cuba. When I booked it stated a day and a half of Cuba. Not so.. You had to be back on the ship by 11:30 the 2nd day of the visit to Cuba. Most of the crew was friendly and the unlimited drinks was a ... Read more

I planned this vacation at the last minute to coincide with my husbands work break. We had never cruised with Norwegian before, but it was the cruise that fit best into the time we had and we really wanted to visit Cuba. We found the ... Read more

Went with friends and enjoyed the Cuba experience after many years of passing by the Island. Tropicana Cabaret and Havana Tour are a must. It was quick getting on and super quick off the ship. Small Ship and a little outdated. Messaging ... Read more

It was my grandson's graduation and my son and daughter-in-law's anniversary. It also was my first cruise. Even though the lines were long, we boarded and got to our rooms in no time at all. The cabins were immaculate. At first I was ... Read more

My husband and I have cruised on the Dawn to Bermuda for the last three years and thought we'd try something different. We chose going to the Bahamas on the Gem for this year. We flew into Newark airport from Boston on a 6:40am flight. ... Read more

This cruise leaves from New York City...I live in Pennsylvania so no flying! I took my husband, our daughter, our son, his wife and our two grandsons. The mini-suites were not as large as on a Princess ship but we did not spend much ... Read more

I wanted to start off by saying my family loves Royal Caribbean and though they're top rated, their recent price hikes cause me to look else ware when searching a cruise vacation. With the help of Costco Travel, we got a great deal on our ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of past experience on the Breakaway. The Gem is a smaller and older vessel, but we did not feel rushed or had to stand in long lines for the buffet, main dining rooms, bars, etc. We traveled with with kids ... Read more

We had a travel agent, but found out more information on our own. We flew into Miami a few days early to dive in the keys so the airport transfers that were arranged by our agent weren't needed. She wasn't clear as to "how" we ... Read more

We choose this cruise because it was our first cruise experience and we wanted to "get our feet wet" with a short one. The fact that it was to Cuba convinced us to try one. Voyage was very calm, unlimited drinks a plus! ... Read more

I am not one for those huge mega ships. The Jewel was perfect, sailed on it twice! The Sky was definitely much smaller, a lot of pros to it, along with a lot of cons. PROS: Alcoholic beverages were included. Lots of elevators, and ... Read more
