Fun time on the Gem
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The first night we ate in the Grand Pacific. The food was good but the service was not. However as the week progressed the service got a lot better. Only once during our cruise did we eat in one of the specialty restaurants, the La Cucina. The service was great and the food was very good.
For most of our trip breakfasts and lunches were eaten at the Garden Cafe. The food was good. Only near the end of our trip did we eat at the Blue Lagoon.It has a very limited menu. However, this was a lot more laid back. You did not have to fight the buffet crowd. It you want to get More away from the crowd this is a good alternative. Overall, the food was good on most days and great on some days.
For the most part the entertainment was very good. There was always something to do.
Our stateroom was always clean and we very seldom saw our Stewart.
I would recommend the Norwegian Gem if you are looking to cruise. Less
Cabin review: BA10606 Mid-Ship Balcony
We were very happy with Stateroom 10606. More than enough room for our needs. It was in a great location with easy access to the elevators. The only complaint that we had is that you could hear toilets from other staterooms. We had never experience that situation before.Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
