Great Family Cruise

Sail Date: August 25, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Great cruise for the family. Should be even better once the build a ship dock on their private island.

Pros: Entertainment and Food was exceptional

Cons: Tender and Disembarkation procedures

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship and cabin was immaculate. Someone was always cleaning something!!
Food and Dining
Something for everyone. We are a family of mixed omnivores and vegetarian and there was always something for all - very accomodating for dietary restrictions. We ate at formal dining rooms and buffets (depending on which family member voted that night) and all were exceptional.
Cabin / Stateroom
I would highly recommend a cabin with balcony - the extra footage is wonderful - especially if you wanted some quiet time to relax and enjoy the views. Saw some interior cabins - nice but go for the view.
Service and Staff
Entertainment staff was incredible. If you go to the Magenta dining room\, request Ramonte's table - he was incredible.
Entertainment was the best of any cruise ship we have sailed. We saw every show and each one topped the next comedian was hilarious as was second city and the final variety show - all shows a must see!!! If you are not into shows there is ALWAYS something to do - if you want to that is.
