We loved our cruise on the Norwegian Gem.  The ship was beautiful, the service great, shows wonderful, ports awesome, food delish and just a great time with fellow cruisers.


The room was inside, small, but sufficient.  Our cabin steward, Hardy, was the top of the line.  He could not do enough to be sure that we were comfortable.  He called me by name everytime he saw me on the ship.


The ports were interesting and easily accessible to all forms of transportation if you want to excursion on your own.  The excursions we took with the cruise line were worth the money.


The food on the ship was a good selection and good tasting.  Steaks could have been better, a little tough.  Deserts were so plentiful and delish.


Entertainment was excellent and abundant.   More options for activities could have been offered on day at sea instead of when we were off the ship during shore excursions.


I would sale Norwegian again!

Don't waste money on the 'pay for' restaurants, the food in the regular dining rooms are great!
