We enjoyed our cruise to Halifax, Nova Scotia; St. John, Bay of Fundy; Bar Harbor, Maine; and Newport, Rhode Island. The ship is very nice, and the staff are excellent. However, the food was disappointing. The appetizers and entrees were ... Read more

We had a lovely time not the cruise. Entertainment - Some of the best singers and dancers I have seen on any cruise ship, that being said the shows were dated but the cast made up for that. Food - Main Dinning Room - Good food and ... Read more

This cruise is sold as a from/to from Quebec or a from/to from Boston or as a one way cruise from either city. You get to meet new people on the return trip, which we liked. This was not a cruise for young people. The ship was sold out but ... Read more

We recently completed a 14 day cruise from Quebec City, QC to Boston, MA and back on the Norwegian Dawn. NCL considers each half of this as two separate cruises, but with different itineraries coming and going many people book them ... Read more

Seeing other reviews on this site for this ship, we were a bit apprehensive about our cruise, although we had seen others that were positive. In particular, we saw complaints about maintenance, public rooms, etc. Our experience was ... Read more

NCL's staff are just great people. My wife and I have cruised so often with NCL that we continually meet staff who are so happy to see us again and we feel the same towards them. We are treated like a true cruise family. We have sailed ... 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

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

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
