I really like the Norwegian Gem. At the sip you can find highly professional staff and excellent food. At the Norwegian Gem you can fill yourself very comfortable. Places to eat and relaxation more, than on Carnival Splendor or Norwegian Breakaway. Free style for the dress code gives more flexibility. But show just good (4 points from 5). Gem has no-smoking in the stateroom and balcony policy. It is good, but is not clear, how security can keep control on it. Walls in the staterooms can't protect you from noisy neighbors at night time. But when you have good non-smoking and non-noisy neighbors, you will be really happy. Sanitation condition of Gem is very good. The problem only in drainage system. After the strong rain at decks under 9 light flooding on balconies were possible. In staterooms no USB chargers, TV's were old the same like TV network. Stewards were excellent. Everywhere very clean. Staterooms were very comfortable (4.5 points from 5). I can recommend all restaurants (5from 5). On the base of my experience I can recommend friends to make travel on the Norwegian Gem.

Cabin was good, steward - the best. During all 8 days we had problem with smocked on balconies neighbors. Also after rain we had flooding on our balconies, because drainage tubes was not cleared before the cruise. TV did not work during 24 hours because of network problem.
