A fabulous vacation!

Sail Date: October 01, 2013

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Overall\, the ship was fabulous!

Pros: St. Thomas was a beautiful port. The ease of the cruise experience could not be beat!

Cons: We heard such awful reviews of the Dominican Republic port that we didn't even get off the ship. It was also a hassle since you had to be tendered on a smaller boat in order to get to shore.

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship crew seemed to be always cleaning. I was so surprised how clean everything was and how quickly they cleared away messes.
Food and Dining
The signature restaurants are a must-have! They made the dining experience leaps and bounds better than my expectations. The buffet and main dining rooms were more of a disappointment in the flavor category\, but the options were plentiful.
Cabin / Stateroom
The pillows were hard as rocks\, but our steward quickly got us new ones when we complained.
