This was our 3rd crusie with NCL, first time just the two of us.  We felt like pros getting onboard,  had our first drink by the pool at noon...lol...The Gem is similar to The Jewel and it was very easy to find our way around.  Again everything was great,  we got a balcony again and loved it very much.   Dinners again were mostly in the main dinning room which was fantastic.  We did celebrate my husbands birthday in Cagneys, and it was so well worth the money.....we took advantage of the poolside bar b ques for lunch.  Saw every show, and enjoyed most of them,  we are not a big fan of Second City but that is just us.  enjoyed our early morning swim and hot tub, very few people were in there in the morning, nice a relaxing.  We made our nightly donations to the casino.  The ports for the most part good.  Port Canaveral not my favorite stop.  I booked a massage in the spa at the beginning of the crusie just to get the relaxing in place.
