Fantastic: Norwegian Gem Cruise Review by terrysk
Overall Member Rating
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Our room steward More was awesome, We were in Suite 11024. Our concierge and butler Zahid and Carlos were great too.
Our ports of call were fun, we went to SeaWorld, Nassau (walked and shopped), and Great Stirrip Cay.
All were a lot of fun. My daughter and I had fun going in and out of the shops with Kelli, the shopping coordinator. We got some great buys also.
I was a little hesitant prior to this cruise after reading some of the reviews. It was our first time on Norwegian. I am glad I was able to leave my own opinion. Ship was kept immaculate, loved washy, washy at all of the eateries. The furniture in our room was a bit outdated and worn, and the bed in the second room could use a decent mattress, but I understand they are going into dry dock for some upgrades, I would love to check the Gem out after the upgrades. The bathroom, balcony and master bedroom were nice. You could see the continuous upgrades going on while we we on board, the ship cannot stop for upgrades. They have been replacing all of the carpet on the ship.
The shows were fun and entertaining and yes we were surprised with a song by Dan Dan the cruise director. Fabulous.
The only staff that I found that was not as pleasant was the photo staff, but I am glad I had my own camera.
I definitely will cruise again on Norwegian. Thanks for the memories.
Shout out to Marjorie, Josylyn, Carlos, Zahid, our steward, Kelli, Dan Dan.
