I would not recommend this ship.

Sail Date: September 30, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was just an average cruise - not impressed at all. The last 2 stops in Nova Scotia & Newfoundland were not worth getting off the ship. When the shuttle bus has a stop at a WalMart - well there isn't much to see. Wish we had taken 7 days instead of 10.

Pros: Ocean

Cons: Ship food

Recommends Norwegian Gem? No.

Ship Quality
Clean enough\, very plain ship.
Food and Dining
We thought the main dining hall which we ate at 4 times was below average for a ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
Rooms were kept clean - plenty of room.
Service and Staff
Friendly and helpful
Not much to do at sea. The entertainment at night was average.
