Cabin 9636
Sep 2016
Our cabin was fine, the AC was cold and the cabin was quiet. Plenty of room to store belongings. Big minus is only located 2 outlets. Only one would hold an adapter for 3 plugs and 2 USBs. -Thanks for the suggestion from another Cruise Critic cruiser.

Norwegian Gem: Canada/NE By: Kim Strelczyk
Our cabin was a fore facing balcony and much more comfortable than other cruise cabins we've experienced. Especially the bathroom! Our steward was professional, friendly, and provided exceptional service.

Not What I Expected By: cruiseelady
My room I actually enjoyed, although the space where the toilet is, is small. I don't know if a person who is tall over 6 feet would fit comfortably, there are no space for the knees. It was nice to sit out on the balcony, or just go for some fresh air when ever you felt like it. Although the day of the debarkation the door broke.

The cabin was very roomy. There were two very comfortable beds and a sitting area with a couch. The bathroom was kinda small but the shower was great. Lots of water pressure.

Not real pleased By: county61s
Always do a balcony room. The room was just like the other ships. Only complaint was the balcony opening was smaller thank most of the other balcony's. Hard to explain but ours was oval cut out of the steel and the other rooms were much more square and open. (less blockage of views). Our room was about 7 rooms from the very front of the ship

8022: toilets did not work one day, and neighbors smoked in the morning which was very noticeable in our room if we had the door open. Also, they threw butts over the side of the balcony, which made me upset.

NCL GEM IN THE ROUGH By: dctaxman1
Since we had an AFT Balcony cabin with three people in it, it was very difficult to get to if the third bed was out. I like to use the balcony in the morning and was unable to get to it because of the layout of the room. They have this table and chair setup that takes up way to much needed room. I was very unhappy with this. I paid for a balcony that I was unable to get to since the stateroom attendant never closed the third bed and I could not get to the balcony unless I climbed over two other beds.

Christmas on the Gem By: Vagabondvoyager
Cabin 8046: Very small balcony cabin. Balcony did not have the glass railing like most of the balcony cabins had, causing limited visibility.

Beautiful wooden closets. Plenty of drawer and hanging space. Luggage mat for bed provided. Sofa converted to a queen bed with a privacy heavy curtain (our teenager loved it). Balcony had 2 chairs and a little table. Desk area had good lighting to apply makeup, a great blow-dryer and a little coffeepot. No regular programming on TV. Bathroom: Dispenser with lovely lavender soap at basin. Shampoo and zesty soap inside shower. Good shower pressure. Hotel-type clothesline. Privacy sliding pocket door for toilet (good idea).
