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

I am a 48 year female who was traveling with 3 other ladies. This was our 4th NCL cruise and we absolutely loved it. We had a forward balcony which I would def. recommend on any ship when leaving NYC harbor. The view was worth every penny ... 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

Just back from a great cruise on the beautiful NCL Gem. This cruise was a trip with my mother who is 78 and I am 53. I got this cruise from my local casino and only had to pay port charges and taxes - so it was very reasonable. I was very ... Read more

We had a fantastic cruise. Our cabin was a balcony on the deck 11 mid ship. The restaurants offered a variety of food for all tastes. Our only disappointment was the Teppanyaki restaurant, at $25.00 per head it was terrible. Cagney's on ... Read more

I will not go on another Norwegian cruise. First, following airlines and hotels, everything is an extra charge above the basic fee. By the time you pay for airfare, wireless internet, access to the indoor pool, excursions, drinks (plus ... Read more

We sailed on the Dawn for a 14-day Canada - New England September 12 - 26. Embarkation went fine, luggage arrived timely. We had cabin #8508 at the bow, because we like the action of the ship. We knew being above the showroom would cause ... Read more

We just returned from a 2 week cruise on the Dawn Quebec to Quebec. The port stops were wonderful but too short. More often than not it took like 1 to 2 hours to get off the ship at each spot especially at the tender spots. I realize that ... Read more
