Beautiful ship, clean and easy to move from one area to another. Crew was very, very friendly, helpful and courteous. GREAT SERVICE!

Pros: the service everywhere on the ship

Cons: food (we ate at all the restaurants) was the same in each reastaurant, lacked variety of menus. Food was ok, just not great.

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Food and Dining

Service and Staff
Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France
Would like to have ihad a lunch include in this even if price was a bit more.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Pisa is a once you have seen it that's enough, also too commercial. Walk too and from the Pisa site and bus was too long for too little.
Naples, Italy
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Valletta, Malta
tour guide rushed us too much from one place to another, walking was not at a comfortable pace.
