Great Cruise on Norwegian Gem

Sail Date: May 30, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall, this was a great cruise experience.  Entertainment on board was very good.  Cruise Director Dan Dan and his staff are outstanding and very engaged with passengers.  Food, while always subjective, is good; menus had  a good variety of items to appeal to all tastes.  Overall condition of the ship was good - clean, and neatly kept.  Crew members other than in the MDR friendly and professional. Our  Room Steward Ben was excellent.  Bar staff excellent, especially at Shakers and Maltings Beer & Whiskey Bar.  Loved the poolside barbeques on sea days.  Wish there was a quiet pool for adults as the 2 main pool areas got a bit crowded and noisy  especially hot tubs which were kiddie pools every sea day.  Overall, we enjoyed this cruise and would do it again.

Just wish the weather had been better but the island is beautiful regardless.

The hallways on deck 8 are very much like a maze in that it is not a straight walkway and it takes a bit to acclimate. We loved the location anyway.
