An enjoyable experienc
Norwegian Gem Cruise Review to Caribbean - Southern
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
The bars were crowded on the Dawn because they have entertainers (professional & guests) ouside the Stardust Room. Not so on the Gem. You have to find them in other areas of the ship. It's not easily accessible.
Your gambling casino is in dire need of proper ventilation. Those of us who don't smoke are unable to stay in there. In fact, it's nauseating just walking through to get to the show. The shops are not as large as on the Dawn, and the jewelry is not marketed properly. There s no movie theatre, and the movies on TV were from the year 1.

Cabin / Stateroom
Ports of Call
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful, with the exception of 2 saleswomen in the gift shops. They had attitude problems, and were not guest-friendly until 1of them was told she was going to be written up. Our staterooms were clean, and the dining room staff was pleasant.
Cons: We prefer the NCL Dawn for several reasons.In the dining room and buffet area,staff reached in front of you to serve food,pour hot coffee from a carafe, and remove dirty dishes. Debris fell into my food/drink.I also don't want to get burned.Shows are poor & piano players are terrible.
