Very Good Cruise by latitude4738

Very good cruise. The NCL Gem is a very comfortable ship. The ports, though not exotic, are very interesting insights into that part of the USA & Canada lifestyle and countryside.

Norwegian Just So So by Quilter78

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Norwegian buffet foods are the same everyday...gets very boring. Dining room can be good, hit & miss. Norwegian seems to push Specially dining. We ate at Cagney's & Le Bistro both very good.

We picked this cruise for the itinerary and were pleased with the ports. We have never sailed on NCL and will never again.

A very pleasant experience by RonRL

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I found Oriental girls saying "washy-washy" and spraying your hands with some unknown liquid, each time you boarded the ship or entered the buffet, to be very offensive. It was like out of a bad 1950's movie that stereotyped Chinese as less than equal. While the food in the main dining rooms was fine, try the specialty restaurants. Definitely a step up in quality and service for a little extra. However, avoid the biscuits everywhere! I believe they were baked by Wayne Gretzky.

Overall, the cruise was very enjoyable. The cruise staff were very nice and helpful. by lorime25

It was a fall foliage cruise, but unfortunately we saw very little color due to a warm summer. The ports of call were still interesting and I enjoyed learning a bit about Canadian history.

Great Family Crusie by Chrisann15

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

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.

Wonderful trip on NCL Gem by carol8590

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

First time on the Gem. Previously sailed on Breakaway and Escape. Liked the smaller size. Deck chairs always available (not by pool but upstairs). Could get into the pool. With 3 banks of elevators, you never waited long and were never full. Room was slightly smaller but closet set up was better than the bigger boats. BBQ by pool was good. Entertainment was varied and good. Staff was great. Waiters, bartenders and steward all very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. Missed the outside bars/outside seating on the bigger ships. The nightly parties were not as good as Spice H2O due to the size. Overall a great experience. Can't wait for the next one.
