Would not go again

Sail Date: February 26, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship itself was a fine ship. Solid, nicely decorated.

Pros: The weather

Cons: Unfriendly crew

Recommends Norwegian Gem? No.

Food and Dining
the food in the buffet area was horrendous...dry, cold, snd tasteless. The food in the main dining and speciality restaurants were very good
Service and Staff
Except for one exceptional waitress in the Le Bistro restaurant, the crew made one feel like you were doing them a favor being there. Not particularly friendly. Room steward always kept room clean but was never very warm and fuzzy to the guests. We think he may have been close to his shore leave though.
Ship Quality
The balcony rooms were quite small. The bathrooms in the cabins were cramped and tight. the shower was spacious though with great water pressure. The main lobby was also cramped/ Too much jaammed in a very small space.
Cabin / Stateroom
decor nice, but very small, cramped balcony.
