Enjoyable cruise on Gem By: amvalentino
Small cabin but very clean. Bathroom really tight, if they removed the door by the toilet area in would help. Didn't get balcony but for a cold climate cruise not worth the extra expense.

This cabin was clean and well maintained. We found it comfortable but didn't even have a table. No place to sit except bed and one small desk and chair. There was a little stool but wasn't useful for anything. Very quiet.

A bit small but OK and well maintained; great steward (Reuben). Kingsize bed was against window--could be better to pick option of twin beds w/space in between or pay more to get an alcove or balcony.

Better Than Expected By: carefree@sea
Room was as expected. We didn't go to a warm destination so we got an ocean view room. Lots of storage. We did bring a power bar as there is only 1 outlet in the room. The bathroom was a bit small as you need to step out just to change your mind. LOL Plenty of hot water at any time of the day.

Another Great Cruise with NCL By: 2floatinggamblers
Nester, our cabin steward was fantastic. Our room was always neat, clean, restocked, etc. I enjoyed my "menagerie" of towel animals!

First Cruise! By: bougainvilleas
Really beautiful view of the water. Not too rocky because we were midship. Room attendant Patrick Llido was AMAZING. At night, there was some banging noises above and below, but we were always so exhausted at the end of the day that we would still fall sound asleep.

Best Cruise I've Taken So Far By: 2floatinggamblersother1/2
Having been on the Breakaway in an inside cabin also on deck 5 I felt compelled to upgrade to a room with a window when I cruised this time on the Gem. It feels as if the Gem rooms are either larger or laid out differently and felt larger than those on the Breakaway. I have been earning my cruises thru CAS so an inside cabin is standard and I personally do not feel the need to pay anymore that possibly a window upgrade. If NCL wants to throw in a suite or balcony for free I would not turn it down but do not think I would spend the extra on the room. I just do not spend any time there except to sleep etc.

Bestest Cruise ever! By: Rockbite
Our cabin was fresh and clean when we arrived. I found no signs of wear or tear, no stains, nothing to indicate the cabin was not kept in new condition. The linens and bathroom were spotless and the entire room very comfortable. Storage: tons of it. No worries about drawer or closet space.

Jewel class ships, (Gem) holding 2300 passengers opposed to Breakaway class holding over 4,000 passengers no comparison. Vastly more enjoyable experience on the smaller ship.

A great cruise as usual By: CTCruisers
We normally book inside cabins. For this cruise, they had a promotion that upgraded us up to an oceanview cabin. Inside cabins are 140 square feet. Oceanview and most of the balcony rooms have 160 square feet of cabin space. The extra footage gave us 3 extra drawers which we did not use. There is plenty of storage with drawers and hangars as well as shelves. There was a small fridge which we had emptied to keep our sodas and beers. The bathroom had a very comfortably sized shower with a glass door. But, we felt the rest of the bathroom was more confining than those found in the inside cabins.We prefer the inside cabins as we like to sleep in which is easier to do in total darkness. The curtains over the window did not totally cover the window and sunlight came in. While it was interesting to have the window for views of the water, we would book an inside for our next trip. They have upgraded the TV’s in the cabin to be flat screens that are interactive. You could check on your account, order shore excursions, and other functions. Outside of the cabin was a convenient Stateroom Service Wheel that could use to show “Make Up Room”, “Turn Down Room”, and “Do Not Disturb”.

great trip By: bobbilo
We were on deck 5, 5088. The cabin was fine, on the small side compared to HAL and Carnival, not as small as Princess (which needs to provide a shoe horn with the room key). Third in the room has a berth but it was remarkably comfortable and I almost hated getting up in the morning. We were mid ship by the elevators, by request as my mother is 91 and can't walk far. There was NEVER a problem with noise in the hallway or from the elevator traffic. A GREAT location for getting on and off the ship at shore excursions. Drawer space was fine for three people and the suitcases fit into the closet. Bathroom space was more than adequate with a full-size shower (unlike Carnival). Only drawback was no chair with a back in the room. Would definitely pick this room again; the location and price are both just right.

Awesome cruise on the Gem By: johnnypiano
Great location. Mid-ship, not close enough to elevators or stairs to make much disruption. Only a few inside cabins across the hallway. Picture window was great. Plenty of storage space. No public spaces above us, so no noise disruptions.

Cabin a bit small but expected. Steward was below standard but that is in consideration of a Carnival standard where you see the person several times a day, always says hello and keeps your room sparkling clean. Also throws in those towel animals each night. Norwegian Gem did not do that.

Not much space to stowe two suitcases. Perfect for two people, third person would probably be too tight. Perfect location to avoid hearing stern engines, anchor being lowered and bow thrusters.

My cabin was small, but completely quiet. I was located under the Magenta dining room and heard absolutely nothing from there, nor from either of my neighbors. Did not hear the staff picking up our luggage the last night. Did not hear anything from the hallway. However, no in-cabin coffee maker and refrigerator was tiny and full of mini-bar stuff to purchase.

Smaller than on some other lines, but very efficiently laid out. Nice, large window. Plenty of drawer/closet space. Bathroom is nice because it has separate doors for the toilet and shower areas, with the vanity/sink in between. Cabin is perfectly situated between forward and midship elevators.
