We live in the New York Metropolitan area, and like to take advantage of cruising and avoiding airports, consequently this was our sixth cruise on the Gem, eighth on NCL and seventeenth all total.

The big  change since December 2015, was in the quality of the food in the main dining room.  We had some of the finest beef tenderloins we have ever experienced (filet mignon, Beef Wellington and sliced tenderloin).  The Osso Bucco was also outstanding and there were several interesting new appetizers.

Service in O'Sheehans remains disappointing and the noise level from the lobby below can at times be deafening.  Announcements were kept to a pleasant minimum, and we looked forward to the Captain's humorous updates.
