An AWESOME Experience

Sail Date: June 01, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

We enjoyed this cruise experience. From the initial check-in process to the ship ammenities to the on-board staff - they are top notch and wonderful at what they do. The on-board ship shows were amazing! The quality and the productions was very professional and we looked forward to seeing a different show every night.

Pros: The entire CREW, their wonderful attitude and willingness to help. The quality of shows/entertainment.

Cons: Shore excurssions are pricey!

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The quality of food and the variety was excellent. On our final night we were offered a special dinner, a custom made meal made to our taste - at no additional charge. The speciality restuarants are very good, if you are in mood for a specific cusine.
Service and Staff
A HUGE positive. Without exception, everyone on board was cheerful, helpful and went above and beyond.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very clean and comfortable. We were in a mini-suite. No compaints about the ammenities in the stateroom. The cleaning staff was incredible. It seemed everytime we would go out we would come back to a clean room!
LOVED a different show every night! From the GEM Dancers to magic to in-prov, excellent quality shows.
