NCL Gem is a favorite

Sail Date: December 13, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our 6th time on the NCL Gem, and like each time before it was awesome. The ship is medium size, which makes it easy to get around. It was recently refurbished, with most positive. The best part of the ship, is the staff. The crew go above and beyond. They are truly like coming home each time - they are family.

Cabin / Stateroom
Obstructed side room - which is great since you get your bed on one side with a window looking at a life boat.

Food and Dining


For example: Restaurants are extremely overpriced even for New York standards.
Spinnaker Lounger too small to hold trivia,dance and contest shows.
Smoking anywhere on board should be forbidden.
Loudspeakers in sunbathing aft deck should be OFF!
