Review Summary

Please do yourself a favor and steer clear of this ship. With the exception of our cabin stewards, the crew ranged from indifferent to rude. Almost every interaction was a horrible and fustrating experience. Our luggage got destroyed - we found this out by seeing it broken with its contents laying in the elevator bay. Had I not seen it there, I wonder, if it would have ever been deliver to us or would it have been left there. We lost electricity for a few hours and my fatrhers is on a oxygen machine. Our concerns regarding his well-being and relocating him to an area with electricity was basicly ignored. You need to set your alarm to wake up and make reservations for the next night's dinner - you actually need to physically go to the reservation desk at this time, as they will not answer the phone. Their private island does not have nearly enough chairs to accomidate the number of passangers that it drops there. I could go on and on with examples. Just do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a vacation on another ship and not a week of rudness and fustration aboard the Gem.
