Skip the Flight on Your Next Caribbean Cruise

Known for its "Freestyle Cruising" option, which allows guests (and especially children) the flexibility of having no fixed dining times or formal dress codes, Norwegian Cruise Line now has its sights set on New York. Four of their fleet will leave from New York this winter, offering families a chance to go on a Caribbean cruise without having to spend money and time flying down to Fort Lauderdale or Miami. Ships embarking from New York include the fleet's newest offering, the 2,400-passenger Norwegian Gem. From mid-February to mid-April, the Gem will sail on weeklong excursions from New York to Florida and the Bahamas before spending the summer in Europe. Ports of call for the ship's 11-day Caribbean voyage include St. Thomas, Antigua, Barbados, and Tortola. Back on the boat after your day in the tropics, you'll be happy to know that the Gem has ten dining options, large suites, a four-lane bowling alley, a rock-climbing wall, and Nintendo Wii in the lounges.

Read's "Family Cruising" for the scoop on the top five cruise lines for families.

They insinuated that we were liars (only finally to admitting to a “faint” odor), RC provided no safety or sanitation information to us or other guests, no face masks, etc. and failed to deal with the problem, making only a cosmetic step
