This cruise was very disappointing.  The Gem just came out of dry dock with lots of changes.  Here are the most egregious:


--  They got rid of all of the funky, fun furniture and replaced it with what looks like it should be in a doctor's office.

--  They cut back on activities; there's very little going on.

--  No more prizes for winning contests. 

--  Much of the staff aloof and rude. 

--  Staff sneezing in the buffet room without covering their mouths.  I came home with a bad cold.

--  Really awful entertainment.


The best part of the trip was the guy who cleaned my room.  He was awesome. I won't be sailing on the Gem again; that's for sure.
