My wife and I are frequent cruisers.  The experience aboard the gem was one of the best cruises we have been on ever.  The staff aboard the ship was one of the friendliest and efficient crews we have had the pleasure to sail with.  They greeted you, asked how your day or cruise was going, and actually listened to your answer.  The service was attentive but not overbearing, pleasant but very efficient.  We appreciated that we were asked if we wanted a drink but only once not repeatedly.  The entertainment was first rate - the onboard singers and dancers were excellent and the additional performers were superb.  We especially enjoyed Oh What a Night and Piano Man Jim.  The itinerary was well thought out and we actually arrived early in most places.  We loved the Glacier National Park rangers narration of our visit to the park.  We did not use any specialty restaurant, spa treatments, or the shore excursions desk so we are not able to add that to the review.  The NCL Pearl was really a gem.
