The Ports were beautiful
Norwegian Gem Cruise Review to Europe - Western Mediterranean
Sail Date: July 06, 2008
Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago
We don't cruise for the food. So we were surprised that we did not even like the food. We never met our room steward and the crew was busy talking among themselves so there were few smiles or hellos for passengers. The buffet area was like a zoo and grill out by the pools
never had fresh food. They would get down to 1 burger no buns and would
have nothing going to replenish the grill. This was at lunchtime. Just was
not organized. Sometimes the breakfast buffet would be open at 6:00am
sometimes 6:30 didn't matter what day but you could not figure out their
schedules. We has reservations at Cagney's Steakhouse at 5:30 and they
weren't ready until close to 6:00 . Ship was new and seemed clean.
