Room Type: Inside

This was my 10th cruise with Norwegian and not up to their standards. The food was poor quality. There are two free dining rooms and a buffet. The wait for the restaurants were 45 minutes or longer. We were told every time to go to the pay restaurants. The dining rooms were only half full. The food was the same in all the free restaurants. No choice at all. The staff was so overworked. Many of them told us they could not wait to leave this ship. The private island was a joke. A small dirty island.

Pros: the ship is new and clean

Cons: they charge for everything !!!!!

Recommends Norwegian Gem? No.

Food and Dining
do not expect good food or all free
Service and Staff
these poor people did not have time to be friendly
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
nice rooms, but our cabin stewart was never around. The guy had too many cabins to clean
the comic was outstanding. The rest of the entertainment wass poor. They put the lounge singers on the stage
