We were in Penthouse Suite 9236 which is an aft stateroom. The suite was nice and roomy but the bathroom was quite small with only one sink and a tub shower. The suite had good, two zone HVAC and a way to close off the bed for early risers ... Read more

Gem has been a favorite ship of mine for years. The size promotes friendly interactions. The food and service is always excellent. The entertainment is typical of other ships but not as professional as say Breakaway. Gem is a great ship to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see more of Canada than Halifax. The Dawn has been redone and was a great ship. We had a balcony room with plenty of space- loved keeping the door open at night hearing the waves. The ship is clean ... Read more
