Review summary

Gem is a beautiful ship which is kept clean and well maintained by an excellent crew. Staff is extremely attentive and friendly, always greeting you with a smile. Room was big and spacious with amazing service from Teresa (butler) and Andy (Room Steward). Dining was always great with many delicious options always available. Recommend trying Moderno. Would definitely sail on the Gem again.
