We rate it an "8-1/2"

Sail Date: February 12, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was very nice and decorated beautifully. There were plenty of comfortable places to go to read or relax throughout the day and night.

Pros: Entertainment, service, decor of ship, cabin.

Cons: Food not up to standards of previous cruises we've taken, both on NCL and other lines. Buffet areas very crowded and cramped.

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Service and Staff
The entertainment was excellent, most activities were good, but the games such as Trivia, Game shows, etc. were poorly run by the Activities Staff. We were disappointed that some activities cost extra. The bingo cost seemed excessive.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Loved Cocoa Beach. It was beautiful with just enough amenities in the area to walk to.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
The line for the buffet was ridiculous. Surely this could be better managed.
Nassau, Bahamas
Don't take the horse and carriage ride. You take your life in your hands with careless drivers pulling you through busy streets.
