09/2014 NCL Gem

Sail Date: September 13, 2014

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

WinkFound the ship a little 'tired'. Organization"O.K." as on other NCL cruises however, considering we departed from NYC, it was good.

Entertainment was poor, food above average.  Service good.  Balcony room was average.  Go for the ports....not the ship.  All-in-all it was o.k.  

First timers will be satisfied to impressed.  Experienced cruisers will rate as C+, like we did.  Nothing to really complain about.....just not anything to rave about.

I would write more but each category or topic would end with 'it was O.K.'

Boston, Newport, and Bay Harbor made the trip worth while.

We have sailed on NCL many times and I will in the future, but probably not this cruise.
