This was our 3rd cruise with NCL, our 2nd out of NYC, & our 1st on the NCL Gem. Our 1st impression was a clean well laid out ship with lots of open spaces.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Overall food quality was good except for the lobster, 1/2 a tail, over cooked & tough. The Buffet was at times crowded but not too bad. Plenty of variety for any pallet. Specialty restaurants VERY over priced, not worth an extra $50 per couple, I can get that at home.


5 out of 5
Always plenty to do for ALL ages, If you were board, it was your own fault. LOL

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff couldn't have been more friendly. Always willing to help in any way. Our room steward always went above and beyond being helpful, anytime he saw us in the hallway he would ALWAYS ask, is everything O.K., or is there anything you need?

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Could not ask for more. plenty of room to roam, sit, or play.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Plenty of room to unpack EVERYTHING, ask my wife. Having a coffee pot was a great idea. Hot morning coffee on the balcony, OMG. Great

Pros: Clean, uncrowded, plenty to do for all ages

Cons: Extra charge dining, Need more time in ports

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!
