Three of the four of us have cruised NCL in the past. Dad 78, sister 52, husband 56 and myself 51. The ships decor is very tastefully done. Bright, but very rich looking. We noticed the casino to be smokey at times and others not. My husband won about $350 at the dollar slots so he was happy. The rest of us lost about $100 at the slots. The Garden Cafe' is nice and open with plenty of great food ...

Our family of four just sailed on a two-night "Weekend Cruise" to nowhere on the new Norwegian Gem from December 15th through 17th. We're in our 40's and we have one in high school and one in college. This cruise sailed from Boston, which is about an hour's drive from our home. A cruise in our neck of the woods is rare this time of year; combine that with a chance to sail on NCL's heavily-promoted ...

NCL new ship has finally captured the sophisticated detail that I love. The colors are more earth toned friendly and the design is just beautiful. We sailed out of Boston and embarkation was easy and painless. We immediately went to our cabin and dropped off our luggage. The cabin was adequate for 3 day cruise (myself and my husband prefer suites). There was lots of room for storing clothes and ...

we took a "cruise to nowhere" from Boston on 12/15 on the NCL Gem...in a word, AWESOME!!!!! The NCL Gem is an awesome ship; it is in the same category as the NCL Dawn as it is a freestyling ship. NCL has definitely outdone itself this time with this new ship. Embarkation was out of Boston. I went with my wife and 16 year old niece. We were able to board the ship within 30 minutes. The nicest ...
