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 ...

Where to begin...Upon arrival at the Manhattan cruise port, we were poorly greeted with a rapidly declining cruise staff. Although the wait was short to board the vessel, we still managed to be scolded for not following the propr seating procedures. After going through security , we came upon another pissed off NCL employee and we asked why no one was smiling and the NCL employee stated to me, ...

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 ...

My husband and I love to cruise. We chose this cruise because it leaves out of NY and gets us away from the cold for a while. Embarkation went well. Meals in the restaurants were very good. My husband had a problem with one of his meals in the main dining room and we were given a bottle of house wine for our troubles. Housekeeping service was excellent with Renaldo being the best housekeeper ...

It was such a good price with no single supplement so booked it straightaway. PRE CRUISE. I booked the flights but as it was very late could only get a good price with flying to GENEVA and staying overnight then another flight next morning to NEW YORK. Got into NEW YORK around 1200 and went to HOSTEL and checked in. Went to the CRUISE PORT and got there in time to see NCL ESCAPE leave. Then ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

This was my 3rd solo cruise on the Gem, and the worst experience by far. The cleanliness and maintenance of the ship has deteriorated a lot since the first time I sailed; there are far fewer crew members on board, so much so that it can take 2 hours to get through dinner in the main dining rooms. Food arrived cold quite frequently; the entertainment was poor compared to other cruises. I ...
