Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

We were not happy with our experience on the NCL's Gem. The room were tiny, very tiny. We could not see the TV because the 3rd bunk from the wall covered it's access. The halls were always congested with vacuum, linen carts, and plates left in the hallway from guest that did not finish their food. Speaking of was the same stuff every single night! There were no variations. The only time we got something else was when we paid for it in one of the specialty restaurants. Their private island was extremely undeveloped. it looke like it was sand blasted and left that way. Our son hurt himself walking back to the tender three times because of the rocks. I will never travel on NCL's cruiseline again.

Pros: The excursions

Cons: The room, food, elavator access, cleanliness
