Ship Facts: Norwegian Gem Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Gem Deck Plans
A Miserable Time!
Our ship left from Venice, Italy for a 14-day cruise to New York,with several stops before the ocean. We had no problems at the various ports along the way. In fact, we absolutely loved Porto Degado in the Azores.

Our problem was not with the stops or the excursions. Our problem was with Norwegian trying to extract money from us all he time. We were "expected" to buy drinks or play bingo. It was as if whatever we spet was not enough.

On top of that, we had miserable weather, at the tail of a very hard storm. A rogue wave hi the ship one day, causing damage to the gift shops and injuries to the travellers. Movies? They were not on the cabin television but we could ent them for just $6.00 per day! Current news? None, unless you were hooked on Sky News, a very sorry substitute for decent news coverage.

We have sailed several times with Norwegian. We have one more booked, because we purchased the discount before we found out how greedy the line was. It will likely be our last Norwegian cruise.
