September 2015 - 7 Night Canada & New England (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Gem
Great trip despite a bit of iffy weather
This was our 12th NCL cruise and the second on the Gem. I had forgotten how much smaller the balcony rooms are on the Gem. It made up for it with a larger bathroom and my favorite good-sized glass stall shower instead of those tiny tray showers with a curtain that pours water out into the rest of the bathroom. The closet and drawer space were also compromised a bit, but for a 1 week cruise it was sufficient for the things we brought. Otherwise we enjoyed good food and good service on a well-maintained ship plus 3 great production shows by the Gem's outstanding dance troupe. As NCL ships go my new favorite if the Spirit.
