Overall, ship was great; large enough to accommodate all of its passengers without feeling overwhelmed.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Enjoyed freestyle dining and felt that it was a large contributor to our enjoyment of the cruise.


5 out of 5
Truly enjoyed the wealth of activities on board. Activities were geared towards many different age groups and interests.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Overall\, staff did not appear to go above and beyond. Those who did were acknowledged via a comment card. Staff were seen displaying affection publicly and did not let guests pass by in the dining area and hallway.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Some areas needed improvement (signs near elevator\, plant decor\, wicker loungers\, and chairs on onboard). Unfortuatnely\, these things were noticeable and were in obvious need of repair/improvement.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Noise could be heard rather clearly between rooms - there was a crying toddler in the room next door which could be heard very clearly. Sand was on our balcony on the day of arrival and was never cleaned up throughout our entire stay.

Pros: Food\, activities on board

Cons: Room noise\, cleanliness of balcony

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!
