Our Cruise restart

We decided to book a cruise late minute and found 5 day NCL Gem to Bermuda. Despite of the stress in dealing with the Bermuda travel authority we boarded the ship as normal. We expected a long process to board being our first cruise since the restart but it was quick. The Gem is a smaller ship so everything was close and convenient. The live bands were great especially Natural Mystic in the Magnum ...

Never Again NCL

Charter cruise/music experience on a cruise. I've sailed on many ships to many locations. While the charter piece of this cruise was extremely well done, NCL was horrible as a provider of the sailing experience. Sailed on the The Gem. Again, I realize this was a charter and an old smaller ship so my comments take that into consideration. Food: Horrible, tasteless, always cold and items ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

For our very first cruise, I wanted to choose one that left from somewhere nearby and didnt have a lot of ports to stop in so I had to choose between NCL and Royal Caribbean . I chose the Gem simply for the freestyle dining to try to make our experience as easy and carefree as possible. I was very pleased with the ship: the staff was very nice, it was very clean. A few times I wished I had more ...

We were traveling with friends that had never cruised before and figured that the Boston to Bermuda would be a first great cruise for them. We got to the terminal nice and early and sailed through security and check-in and patiently waited for board. Once we got on board, we were the first ones in O'Sheehans for lunch. O'Sheehans is my least favorite restaurant on the ship but everyone else ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

A group of us met with our travel agent and we decided on the Gem from his review of it. The entertainment was wonderful, but the most impressive thing was the friendliness of the staff. All of the staff was courteous, friendly and very helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the dining facilities. The photographs taken are a little expensive, but for my first cruise, I just had to have ...

Had a wonderful time this was my first cruise and it was so much fun. Amazing trip I already want to go on another one. Food and drinks on board was great, loved the staff, fun on board activities, we had so much fun while at sea, exploring the boats shops and resturants. I super enjoyed my drink package. Bermuda was beautiful. We went parasailing and saw the dolphins and we also explored Hamilton ...

We had left a previous on board credit which was expiring so we went on this cruise. This was our 59 cruise so we are experienced cruisers. Celebrity Princess Royal Caribbean and NCL. Norwegian Cruise Line is anything but free at sea. First they push the Drink Package and the Specialty Dining Packages. Let me tell you about the Drink Package. Every bar was under staffed the lines to get a ...

Will cruise NCL again!

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The major reason for choosing this cruise was because of how convenient it was...however after sailing with NCL I will def choose this cruise again for a variety of reasons. The Gem is a smaller/older ship but very "user" friendly, esp. when traveling with older people. Our our balcony cabin was a little on the smaller size but always clean, towels replaced, etc. The Grand ...

This is an old gem with poor management. Food was lackluster

Took cruise because of ease of access from Boston. Overall a very sad ship. Food was lackluster at best. ( except Cagney’s ). Everything is dated and worn. Young crew very helpful but leadership invisible. Worth driving to NYC to get a different ship Buffet was undersized but food was fair to good. Dining rooms were dark and food very salty. Cafeteria quality food Pools are not sufficient ...
