Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was the perfect size. Never felt crowded. Everything was well maintained. Smooth ride even in rough seas. Entertainment venues were laid out nicely. Ship was easy to navigate.
Food and Dining
The included dining venues were excellent. of the four specialty restaurants visited, only Cagney's, the steak house, was average. All others were amazing.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was well maintained by Gabriel, Great steward and person. Very attentive and knowledgeable. Only issues with the design of the inside stateroom were the lack of space for the fourth passenger (should have had a second Pullman bunk bed instead of the cot) and the lighting (wish they could have piped in some daylight!)
Service and Staff
Our room steward, the cruise director and the assistant cruise director were excellent.
Jeff Harms was hilarious. Charles Peachock was amazing. The Gem's production crew was fantastic.
Children's Programs
Would have liked to have seen more activities for late teens (15 - 18)
