The Norwegian Cruise on the Gem was extremely enjoyable.  The staff on board went beyond our expectations to make our comfort and enjoyment  a priority.  From the cleanliness of the entire ship, to the food and entertainment, it was obvious that this organization pulled out all the stops.  My wife and I had a ball and we will cruise on Norwegian again.

Food and Dining
Fantastic choices in the complimentary restaurants,
Service and Staff
The Room Cleaning and Makeup staff were extraordinary.
The Cruise Director, Gio and his staff produced wonderful shows, every night, and we enjoyed the theater, the singers, and dancers, the Comedian, the Broadway Belter, and the Fantastic Gem Orchestra.
Children's Programs
We did not travel with children but observed the programs offered for the children and heard the very good comments from the parent who did.
Onboard Activities
Whatever your choice, from lounging on the pool decks, to rock climbing to games participation, you can be busy, or not, all day and most of the night.
Destinations and Excursions
The excursions available at Port Canaveral were not long enough to justify the shuttle time and expense.
Cabin / Stateroom
Small but efficient. We used the cabin only for sleeping, and showers.
New York, New York The embarkation and disembarkation process was fast, and easy.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Limited time to visit Disney, and others because of lengthy shuttle time.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
The day we arrived was a bit rainy and the water choppy, so we remained on board the Gem.
Nassau, Bahamas
Everything for a great local shopping experience is within a 5 minute walk from the docking station.


Don't overpack. Select comfortable, elegant casual clothes and clothes suitable for swimming and lounging, and that will suffice.
