We had such an incredible good time on our Norwegian cruise featuring the northeast coast including Halifax, St. John, Bar Harbor, Boston, & Newport. The itinerary was great and the crew were awesome!! Super friendly, attentive, and anticipated our every need. The bartenders remembered our names what we like to drink. Our cabin steward remembered our names immediately as well as most every waiter and waitress who served us even one time. If we ran into any staff at any location on the ship they greeted us by name - very impressive. The GEM was impeccable even for an older ship. Everything was spotless.
