I was I total awe of everything this trip entailed. I was in awe of NYC. I have wanted to go to the big City all my life; I am now 80 and did just that this year! I felt a lot was packed into Saturday which was tiring. I was unable to ... Read more

After reading all the reviews on food and service, we were a bit nervous about the Gem. Don't believe some of the negative. This was our 7th cruise, first time on NCL. I can't believe how critical some people are. We thought the food was ... Read more

Ship's policy statement says a passenger may opt out of the automatic daily service charge by stopping by the customer service desk and asking for it. Not true in my case; I was told that I could not opt out (company policy) but ... Read more

Experiencing a trip (with some imagination) as explorers, fishermen, merchant seamen, or navy personnel may have done, except in the comfort of a large cruise ship. We hit some of the major weather patterns. Fog on the trip from ... Read more

. Loved the Dawn and its crew. Stateroom w/veranda was fine . . . a bit cramped; but the luggage fit under the bed. Great bed. Great steward. Didn't realize at the booking that this was a back-to-back cruise with passengers embarking and ... Read more

Our first cruise in 20 years. Last one on the Norway in 97. Embarkation and debarkation were painless, less that one hour each. The Dawn is an older ship and is starting to show her age. What made this cruise so good was the crew and ... Read more

From the moment we arrived until the moment we disembarked we felt comfortable and pampered. This staff was EXCELLENT. The food AND dessert was wonderful throughout the ship. The specialty restaurants were well worth the added price. The ... Read more

I was traveling with my adult son. We both enjoyed this older ship because we could walk the whole way around the outside on deck. Evening dinner in Cafe was disappointing. Also, food there & in the Blue Lagoon wasn't hot enough. ... Read more

This was teamK's 6th NCL cruise and we're eager to schedule #7. This was our first cruise on the Dawn, which is the sister ship of the Star (our favorite). We like the mid-size ships rather than the really big ones. We embarked in ... Read more

Just got back from our cruise to Canada and Maine and we couldn't have asked for a more fantastic time aboard the Gem. I was a little leary after having read some reviews but believe me it was more than I expected. From the moment we ... Read more

We took the full 13 day cruise. Even though it's advertised as a 13 day cruise, it's really a 7 day cruise to the Bahamas followed by a separate 6 day cruise up the coast to Canada/Maine. The difference between being a true 13 day cruise ... Read more

My first Norwegian cruise and I was on the Norwegian Gem the week of June 21st from NY to Canada. There are a lot of things to discuss with this freestyle system. First, the buffet is boring and seating is woefully inadequate. If you don't ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Norwegian. The Free Style approach appeals to us and Norwegian service was top shelf. The boat is a nice size, in tip top shape, and the accommodations were wonderful. The ports of call are simple ... Read more

This was just our 3rd cruise. It was the 3rd best ship. Was not impressed in any fashion with this older , in need of repairs ship. Carpet poor, very dull "wow" factor. One of the nightclubs smelled so bad of mildew. And whoever does their ... Read more

The staff was very courteous and accommodating. We purchased the ultimate dinning package so we ate dinner every night at one of the premium restaurants and the food was the best that I've had on any cruise. The ship needs attention badly. ... Read more
