Review summary

It was wonderful to do a 12-day cruise with only two sea days and every port was different and they all were good. The only disappointment was the very cool and damp weather that followed us everywhere. We love the Norwegian Gem especially for the great shows in the Stardust Theater every night. No charge and no reservation needed!

Because every day was only in the 50's and overcast we could not imagine using the pool or lying on the loungers. No ping pong and hardly walking the decks due to weather.

We were greeted at the pier by townspeople dancing in costume and we were given flags, maple syrup ice sticks and blueberry juice for a friendly welcome.
