Review for Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - All

Writing as europeans, that was our weakest cruise yet. 1) From a touristic point of view, there is absolutely not one single highland during the whole cruise. We first did not understand why Norwegian distributed bath towels on the different jetties. Well,.....because there is just beach and sun. Of course you shouldn't fly over from Europe to go to the beach. Better stay in the Mediterranian ...

Well, this is the new norm, thanks Covid! Booked the cruise for Charleston, found letter on bed as we checked in, C'ston cancelled. Also the balcony cabin was much smaller than expected, & bathroom the tiniest ever. We're not even tall or overweight & your knees hit the wall as you sat on toilet. That's a new one! So onward to extra sea day, & NCL fortunately got into DCL space & put us in ...

Charter cruise/music experience on a cruise. I've sailed on many ships to many locations. While the charter piece of this cruise was extremely well done, NCL was horrible as a provider of the sailing experience. Sailed on the The Gem. Again, I realize this was a charter and an old smaller ship so my comments take that into consideration. Food: Horrible, tasteless, always cold and items ...

Typically Excellent Norwegian Cruise

Excellent large ship, although I find the smaller ships to be much more enjoyable because they seem so much less crowded. Experience was typical of my expectations for NCL. Ship's officers and crew were very welcoming, which notably helped enhance the experience. Particularly noteworthy service was received from Vanessa O (bar waitress), Wayan R (Waiter), Minellie P (bar waitress), and I Kadek ...

We chose this cruise because it was one the first 14 day cruises available post CDC clearance and because of NCL's policy of 100% vaccinations for passengers and crew. We've had four cancellations in the past two years and were anxious to get back on the water. Several topics to note: 1. The Covid testing procedures at the terminal were an inconvenience but pretty efficient and well worth ...

We were sailing out if NYC parked the car in the terminal lot at noon when we had a scheduled appointment..and had to walk a city block to be Covid tested ( 2 tests) in another terminal...It took over 4 hours in the hot terminal waiting in line after line. ! You got the results back from the rapid Covid and we’re approved you get a wrist band and then told to truck on back to the first terminal ...

My wife and I just did the 7 night NCL cruise on the Breakaway from NYC - our first post COVID cruise. I wanted to share what to expect in a Bermuda cruise now since it was hard for me to find current info. Overall, we had a great cruise vacation thanks to the 40% capacity (2000 instead of 5000) and our good fortune with weather (we departed on 10/31 - the prior cruise ended up stuck in rough ...

We had cruise credit from a cancelled 2020 Caribbean cruise and decided to use it on this Bermuda cruise. We arrived in NY the day before and stayed at the nearby Midtown Comfort Inn and walked the one block to the port in the morning. I struggle with motion sickness, especially on the Pacific, and figured with this cruise I was guaranteed 2 1/2 days of land. A few of the Bermuda cruises in the ...

This was our first cruise post covid shut downs. Ncl canceled our original Boston to bermuda cruise and 3 others due to covid. We had booked the joy out of Miami for the same week, we had a haven suite and of course they canceled that on us without explanation. Since we had that week scheduled off from work the Breakaway out of NYC is what we rebooked. They jacked the prices and we now had to ...

First let me say the NCL is doing a great job making sure the passengers feel safe and comfortable on the ship without the scent of antiseptic or over powering disinfectants. the staff is masked at all times but you do not feel uncomfortable. The Ship was 1/3 to capacity and this made getting around easy. The restaurants were great, and the ship staff could not make you feel more ...
