Less than average

Sail Date: November 29, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

While we generally liked the ship and the cabin, the service level was less than average, lines everywhere. It was a challenge to find a seat in the cafe. Buffet hours were inconvinient. The freestyl cryising did not really work.
Entertainment was average. We had to pay for almost everything. It seems that it is getting worse with every year.

Pros: new ship, nice cabin

Cons: crowded, food, lacking service, entertainment, ridiculuos charges for everything from water to movies

Recommends Norwegian Gem? No.

Ship Quality
The ship is great
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
We had to use the specialty restaraunts with cover charge. It seemed that they could not manage the number of passengers they had.
