Norwegian Gem

September 2015 - Norwegian Gem to Canada, New England, New York

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.

lbremer's Tips

Key West, Florida - This was a great port to just walk around the town. Ernest Hemingway's house on Whitehead was a highlight of our day. Also interesting was the Mel Fisher's Treasure Museum that displayed gold and other treasures brought up from a Spanish wreck. Both were in easy walking distance from the pier.
Portland, Maine - Weather was so bad we could not leave the ship so have no info to share.
Bar Harbor, Maine - Don't miss Peggy's Cove and the Titanic Burial Site at Fairlawn Cemetery. So much to see here and so little time.
Saint John, New Brunswick - We enjoyed just tour o the city with a great gal who was super entertaining and knowledgeable. She made sure we saw the Reversing Falls at full boil and then later in the tour at full calm.
