Great time on the NCL Gem

Sail Date: April 24, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Had a great time.  The crew was very helpful and friendly, the ship and stateroom was clean.  I know some people said it needed updating but I didn't see that. Went on the Breakaway last year and didn't like that as much as the Gem.  The Gem was laid out better and had much better shows.  The weather wasn't that great, but found enough to do on board to keep us busy.  Can't wait for the next cruise
