We enjoyed our trip on the Gem to the Bahamas, leaving New York August 9th for a week.

This was not our first trip on the Gem and won't be our last. What we love about the NCL line is that everything is available and you can pick and choose what to do. So many restaurants. The entertainment is first rate. The service is great, and although I like to dress up my husband does not,  he will wear nice slacks and a shirt, but refuses to wear a tie and jacket, we both enjoy what we wear. The food is amazing, we have sailed on the Gem for many years now and it keeps getting better.
