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