Virgin Cruise

Sail Date: July 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was beautiful and massive like being in a city on water.

Pros: Well Organized

Cons: Many cruise staff had trouble understanding English. Being my first time on this cruise I did not know about renting a clam shell or cabana when we go to Great Stirrup or that you had to run to try to get lounge chairs.

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Ship Quality
Bathrooms and common areas always clean loved the hand anti-bacterial availability before entering a bar\, lounge or restaurant.
Food and Dining
Food was good small portions but you could order as much as you want learned after 2nd day. Problem getting half and half for coffee all restaurants except garden cafe and then i learned to get it myself and bring to the restaurant with me.
Cabin / Stateroom
small but not expecting a huge room showers were great. Always being surprised with nice little treats when returned to room.
Service and Staff
very friendly except one bartender in Spinnaker Lounge she was nasty with an attitude. The best bartender was in the Martini Lounge
nice variety plenty to choose from all enjoyable.
