We had a wonderful time on the Gem! We’ve met new friends along the way also the ship has a friendly crew. The Gem seemed like it was lacking crewmen. Service was somewhat subpar in some cases. Service at Cagneys on our second specialty reservation was awful. Any ways we had a great time on her. I was not impressed with the casino staff, I had requested my points to be transferred from the other ...

Let's just start off by saying that the customer service was awful. No one offered to assist in any way for anything, snapped my sail pass card out of my hand several times, never greeted you in passing, and the lines to even get a drink at any of the bars was too long to even bother - no waiters going around either. The food.. awful. Cafeteria food unless you go to the Specialty Dining - ...

We booked a 9 day Eastern Caribbean cruise with NCL in February 2012. This being our 5th time cruising exclusively with NCL. Scheduled to depart on October 29th. Unfortunately hurricane Sandy decided to pay us a visit and our cruise was delayed. The coast guard had closed the port of New York, and NCL had no information on when it was expected to re-open. We had lost power had no TV, internet, or ...

Embarkment: It was very easy, lines clearly marked, wonderful people directing. We arrived about 11:30 were showed to the VIP line, and we were eating lunch at Cagney's before noon. We met our special waitress Josephine on the first day, and had a wonderful week, seeing her smiling face, and cheerful spirit. She spoiled us, I wanted to take her home in my suitcase. They had a wheelchair to help my ...

NCL GEM to Bermuda October, 2011 "When good is just what you had in mind for your vacation." This was cruise #34 for me, with most on RCL/Celebrity/Cunard. So, I've been on my share of ships. The only other NCL ship I've done was the Sky, on a full-ship charter when it was new. So, this was like trying out a new line for me. I travel single, and booked a last-minute deal on an outside ...

THE GOOD Cabin and balcony size, bathroom and shower, fixtures, fittings and furnishings throughout most of the ship - especially the deck furniture- modern comfortable and plenty choice, we loved the "pods" at the front; Choice, quality and presentation of food in the Garden Cafe, the free coffee and juice being much better than on our previous cruise line. Itinerary - good ...

This was a lovely cruise from NYC to Bermuda. My tips are: Not every extra fee restaurant was better than the free dining options but at the same time I was not ONCE disappointed or regretful I spent the extra couple of bucks. Well worth the money was Cagney's Steak House, Sushi, the French place. Check the wine list then decide whether or not to bring your own at a $15 per bottle fee. ...

We were on the October 9th Bermuda cruise from New York on the NCL Gem with our two children (young adults). Although this was the first cruise for them, this is the 5th cruise for my husband and I. Here are my comments regarding the ship : The main dining room (buffet) is way too crowded. There is hardly room to move between the tables and drinks (coffee, water, ice tea) are not served at ...

I traveled this time with my teen-age daughter and my husband. This was our 4th NCL cruise together. Previous sailings have been on the Dawn, The Crown (our favorite) and the Spirit. I found the Gem to be the most attractive of the 4. The color scheme is jewel tones. Yellows, greens, purples,reds, blues... Bright but inviting. There is a stunning glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly adorning the stair ...
