Norwegian Gem

January 2017 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

Perfect size ship

This was our 5th time on the Gem.  Norwegian is in the process of changing / tweaking their experience.  Note the scraping off of the words " Freestyle Cruising " from the hulls.  We were invited to dine at the Captains Table, which was an  honour. Food was a bit salty at times, but overall very good to excellent.

March 2016 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

"4th time on the Gem"

BAK1061's Tips

San Juan, Puerto Rico - 105 Calle Fortaleza.....that's the address to remember if you want the best Panama hat in the Caribbean. It's called, Olé, and they have a saying; " nothing in our store comes from China". Their hats are from Ecuador, and are customized in the store. Walking distance from the ships. 5*****
Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - Be wary of price increases in some of the games such as KeyMaster. Now $2. Be prepared to do a lot of walking. She is a large ship.
Carnival Splendor Carnival Splendor - Don't sign up for the spa / thermal suite. Small pool, small locker rooms. Much better on NCL
Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - The ship is BIG. Be prepared for that. The shows were very good, especially the Cirque show/dinner. Ice Bar wanted $20 to enter. Included two drinks. Most people only stay 1/2 hr. We didn't try it. Cagney's was, as always, excellent. Sushi Bar was excellent. Limited hours though. 5 stars.
