Good, but not GREAT

Review for Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

Let me start by saying that there was a lot of Good about this cruise. Just not enough. Had a nice time in Miami prior to my cruise. Embarkation went very smoothly (except they need to put a sign or arrow outside of the COVID Testing room or have an employee standing outside waving people in). Once I found my way into the testing area the process was simple and took about 15-20 ...

Norwegian Cruise Line Isn’t Ready For Cruises

I debated writing this review for sometime for so many reasons. The one thing that can summarize this review is that Norwegian Cruise Line Isn’t ready. They aren’t ready to sail after COVID 19. I just got back yesterday from a 7 night cruise to ports in Belize, Cozumel, Honduras and Costa Maya on the Norwegian Gem. This cruise was by far my worst experience with any cruise line. I love cruising ...

This cruise was sort of rescheduled from the Norwegian Joy back in January 2021 which was canceled, then we switched to the Gem sailing out of the Dominican Republic, which was itself canceled, whereupon we switched to the Joy and then it was replaced by the Gem. To be honest, with all that's been going on in the world, we didn't know if this cruise would sail, either. We got our COVID test two ...

Norwegian did a great job with the pre-cruise COVID testing. Glad they stuck it out and insisted 100% of crew and passengers be vaccinated, would not have sailed any other cruise line at this time. THANK YOU NORWEGIAN. The cruise was great. I was amazed at the condition of the ship. She looked like she just left the shipyard. Beautifully maintained, not a scratch on her. You can immediately ...

We just had a fantastic time on this Cruise on the Norwegian GEM out of Miami departing August 29th and wanted to rave about the great job NCL did!!!! They made us feel safe and sound given their vaccination requirements and CVS testing right there at the dock before being able to board. The staff wore masks and had strict protocols onboard with sanitizing agents and cleaning products to make ...

When arriving to the terminal, NCL has taken the step of having a "free" Covid 19 test preformed on ALL passengers before being allowed to embark. LOL! NCL Gem was amazing, we did the Western Cruise and the food was top notch, the entertainment was awesome, The Duo show, Kinky Boots, The Comedian and much more were ALL AWESOME! The crew is wonderful, we gave out $5 bills & singles to the staff, ...

1st Cruise out of Miami after Covid: Good and Not so Good

My husband and I were excited to get cruising again. This was NCL Gem's first cruise out of their new terminal in Miami since the covid shut down. Once we figured out where to park in the garage at Terminal, we were off and running. The pre-covid testing on site was smooth, quick and easy. Once tested, we waited in a large open area with others for our assigned number for the covid test to pop up ...

New terminal is gorgeous and check in , with 100% testing went quickly and smoothly. The crew from the Captain on down seemed really happy to be back at sea. The crew staff were all very helpful in attending to your needs. The buffet was "self serve" and it seemed to be business as usual. No special "pandemic conditions" after we got underway. The only exceptions were the crew were masked and ...

My wife and I cruised on the Norwegian Gem from 8/15 to 8/22/21. This review reflects our experience: we felt safe and had a fantastic time. I strongly recommend this Norwegian cruise! This was the first NCL cruise out of Miami in over a year. We picked this cruise for several reasons. Firstly, it was our 30th wedding anniversary. We cruised NCL for our honeymoon and for our 10-year, but it had ...

We decided to take a last-minute cruise out of Miami on the Gem. This was the first sailing after Covid. I have to say that the process of Embarkment was excellent! The ship although old was very clean and well maintained. It is a smaller ship, so getting from one end to the other was fairly easy. The staff was amazing, and the specialty dining was definitely worth it. I would go on this ship ...
