October 2013 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern
Love not getting on a plane. Thirty minutes from my home to the ship. Great!! The first time with Norwegian. The Gem is a beautiful ship. Stayed in a mini-suite, tiny. The room stewart was geat-made sure that we were okay and tried his best to please.
Love the nightly entertainments--cruise director and staff did a good job. The days however were boring.
The dining experience was less than desirable. For a good meal you have to do the specialty dining. Find the wait staff dazed, confused and not very helpful. Seating in the garden cafe was limited and the restrooms in the area were not will attended to.
It rained heavily at one of the ports and it was nice to have a towel to dry off as you returned to the ship.
