Great time, this was our 2nd time on The Gem, 7 Day Bahamas & Florida.  We loved it had even more fun this time around - can't wait to go back!!  ATLANTIS was the highlight of our cruise for sure!!  We wish we had more time in the Bahamas/Nassau - too much to do before 5:00 pm !!  I would add an extra day there, or change the itinerary around a bit.  You really have to manage your time efficiently if you wish to shop and enjoy your excursions as well.  I mentioned this to the customer service desk staff, and they totally agreed with me......something to consider perhaps for future itinarary updates...??


Food and Dining
Delicious - huge variety
Service and Staff
Overall everyone is extremely pleasant and accomodating. Ennis Emanuelle from "The Tradewinds" Shop, thank you, love our "Phillip Stein" and all gorgeous jewelry you helped us select. See you soon!!!
Entertainment Terrific!!

My daughter always enjoys "Entourage"
Onboard Activities
tons of things to do ALL day long, or just lounge and R & R!!!
Destinations and Excursions
I would definately extend the time in the Bahamas, there' tons of things to do, but very little time ..... We loved our shopping and ATLANTIS!!!
Ship Quality
Everything was very nice...happy happy, washy washy.....GEM-Norwegians will know what this
Embarkation and Disembarkation
We were cleared and ready to embark in less thatn 10 minutes, plenty of time for pictures before boarding!!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Great, spacious and excellent housekeeping/customer service(s).


We loved all the restaurants, specialty and complimentary....Not tooo crazy about "Magenta Room" we gave it a 2nd try this time around.....not worth the experience, dissapointed - again. Everywhere else was great!! The Garden Cafe was nice and "very casual" good for quick meals, very nice staff!
