Ship Facts: Norwegian Gem Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Gem Deck Plans
affordable cruise

the gem is an older ship that was remodeled its a smaller ship we had about 2700 people its itinery was very low key a good ship for a starter cruise the ship has lots of dining options 2 main dining rooms and all of the optional dining venues as on the newer ships the wait staff was struggling in all of the resturants this was the first trip of a new itinery for this ship and it seemed that wait staff was new or had not worked with one another before they were trying but it seems they were not trained properly

I had a oceanview cabin the cabin was very nice lots of storage areas and a very nice bathroom with pocket doors that closed off the shower and another to close off the toilet the bathroom was small but well done

embarkation was very smooth and went quickly the disembarkation was a conjested mess because there were not enough customs booths were open the carribbean and latin bands were excellent this is a good cruise for people who just want a relaxing low key cruise
