Best NCL Cruise we have ever had...

Sail Date: June 15, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We love the "Free style cruising" concept and had a great experience on the Gem. The itineraries, food, and tours were the best we have ever had on NCL and the employees were all pleasant and accomadating.

Pros: The great ports & no customs...

Cons: Seating area in the Buffet Restaurant. Catagory BA Veranda could have been bigger

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Ship Quality
For the size, this ship was packed with many of the extras that a mega ship could have, including a Bowling alley, specialty Restaurants, and a climbing wall for those so inclined
Food and Dining
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France
The French Riveria at its finest.
Naples, Italy
Probably the least enjoyable of all of the Ports. A very unkept city.
Valletta, Malta
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
