Ship Facts: Norwegian Gem Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Gem Deck Plans
Norwegian Gem - Cruise to Nowhere
we took a "cruise to nowhere" from Boston on 12/15 on the NCL a word, AWESOME!!!!! The NCL Gem is an awesome ship; it is in the same category as the NCL Dawn as it is a freestyling ship. NCL has definitely outdone itself this time with this new ship.

Embarkation was out of Boston. I went with my wife and 16 year old niece. We were able to board the ship within 30 minutes. The nicest thing is that you could check your luggage in right in Boston as it was only a 2 day cruise.

Oue room was on the 5th deck; the room slept 3 of us comfortably. The room also came with a flatscreen TV. It was impeccably clean and bright. We never saw our room steward (I guess you can take that as a good thing).

We had lunch at the Magenta Dining was great and selection was wonderful. For dinner, we went to The Orchid restaurant. As it was our niece's 16th bday, we had ordered a cake. The waitstaff was very attentive to all the details and sang Happy Birthday to her. Our other dinner was at The Magenta Dining Room and dinner was great. Breakfast was at the Great Pacific Dining Room--wonderful room.

We did go bowling; that was cool. Being Christmas time, the ship was nicely decorated with Christmas trees abound.

The only complaint is that on Sunday, they said we would be seeing the NE Patriots play; because of signaling problems, they could not get the game. But you know, if that is the only complaint, it ain't too bad.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the NCL Gem; it is a first class ship.
