Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

the rooms were beautiful and spacious. the food was better than other cruise lines i have been on and plenty of it 24-7. the employees on the ncl jem treated my family with the pleaseantries that is expected from a cruise ship vacation regardless of the money we spent to take the vacation. the atmosphere at the clubs mingling with the show entertainers made my vacation a memorable experience i won't soon forget.

Pros: i received the star treatment on my budget

Cons: the short stay

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Ship Quality
the ship was grand and lovely.
Food and Dining
the variety, quality and availability of the food kept to the image of the freestyle cruising that we wanted. no set schedule for us.
Cabin / Stateroom
we had a sizeable room that a pleasure to stay in
Service and Staff
we had cruised before on other companies but this crew was the best. they went out of their way for service and friendliness. this friendliness poured over onto the passengers making the experience that much better.
we mingled with the performers after the show and were completely delighted with their demeanor and freindliness.
Nassau, Bahamas
the site to visit was atlantis what a place
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
the private island barbeque was excellent. food was available and the crew handed it out in an orderly fashion. there were sections for couples and for families and for quiet time on the beach. we wanted for nothing.
Don't Miss: the barbeque
