My husband and I had not taken a cruise in a while and wanted to cruise in a different direction than before and took a chance on NCL Gem this June 2018. The Gem is a very nice ship. I found out that it was recently refurbished. The Gem was ealhoto get a around.
The amenities were great. The entire staff that we encountered were 2nd to none. Every where we went they were willing and ready to assist us. The service was exceptional.
The excursions were expensive but we enjoyed them.
The cabin was very spacious and accommodating. It was nice to be able to have the balcony view. It’s true. If you have a balcony you want go back to the regular stateroom.
