There is something very unusual about the Gem, You noticed it as well: The Gem seems to magically absorb the people so that no venue is packed and at the same time there are plenty of folks to socialize with. I've been on the Gem fully loaded as well and for the life of me I can't figure out where everybody is.

Nice to know that you enjoyed your cruise.
Thanks for the review - detailed and thorough. Sounds like they handled the crowds well.
