Norwegian Gem

February 2013 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

Mediocre Cruise

My husband and I are long-time cruisers.........having traveled on the "Norway" seven or eight times, and in the years since on Norwegian and other cruise lines. The Norwegian Gem is a beautiful ship overall and that's the best thing I can say about it. Entertainment was good. Food was ok and the night before disembarkation the food was good. Staff was ok with a few exceptions where they were great. The embarkation process took over an hour and we arrived early. Our cabin bore traces of the previous tenants, which I cleaned up. We chose a mini-suite balcony, mid-deck which was a nice size except the BEDS were well WORN! Change the mattresses, please. We laid in grooves on the bed for nine nights. It used to be much nicer service with the cabin stewards when they depended on our tips! I very much disliked the casino slot machines as there was really no chance of winning anything. We will not take this trip again.

Norwegian Spirit

September 2008 - Norwegian Spirit to Canada, New England, New York

A GOOD CRUISE

Both the crew and the cuisine were excellent. The ports were great, also. We had a problem in Martha's Vineyard getting back to the ship. The water was very rough, so we had to wait for a local sightseeing boat to take us there. We were crowded, with no explanation, in a small area under a canopy. I stood for 80 minutes waiting for a ride back to the ship. It was not a pleasant experience but would have been easier if someone would have explained the situation. Also, I would advise travelers not to play the slots at the casino. I did not see anyone winning.......ever! There was a lot of grumbling around the ship because of the total lack of jackpots. One last thought........as an experienced cruiser, I was surprised to find that NCL was charging $10 to $15 per person for the five upgraded restaurants. It used to be one or two at most. Would I do it again? Yes, most definitely, but I might try another cruise line.
