This was a very big ship. Our first time on NCL. I would love to try their other ships.

Pros: Food

Cons: weather

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Ship Quality
The last day many of the activities were in the spinnekaer lounge. With so many people using the facilities on that level they got pretty gross.
Food and Dining
This was our first time "freestyle" cruising. It was nice to have the different restaurants there, but it can get expensive. The two we tried were the Tepenayaki and Caseys steakhouse. Both were excellent! Much needed change from the buffet line. Overall food and service was awesome.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice but pretty small.
Service and Staff
Very friendly
So many activities to choose from
Nassau, Bahamas
The city is a bit run down but fun shopping. Bring cash and change so you can barter the price.
Don't Miss: The Atlantis resort. Expensive but nice.
Port Canaveral, Florida
This was miserable because it was pouring rain cold We had purchased the island of adventure excursion. This was a good value for the money. We did many of the rides with out lines because of the rain. There were some attractions that were closed due to weather.
Don't Miss: Harry Potter!!!!
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
First real full day of SUN!! Loved it.
Don't Miss: Ocean
