I went on this cruise because i am sailing her in December to the eastern caribbean, and i wanted to see what the ship was all about... Really i can't judge the ship too much, because it was only for one night, and a lot of loud roudy people, which i don't enjoy too much..... but getting back to the Gem, i thought that the ship had a very homey feel, and nice and cozy....Definitely the ship was ...

My family and I set out on April 4th, 2014 for a one night cruise to nowhere for my grandmothers 85th birthday (300$ per person.) The day started out great after getting the family (11 people) together to celebrate such an occasion. Shortly after boarding the ship at 2:30pm, I began to think that maybe the getaway wouldn't be so great after all. Now were do I start...after boarding I noticed that ...

We just returned from a 1 night cruise to nowhere which while it was enjoyable I didn't get to do as much as one would of hoped. I was still recovering from bronchitis and a sinus infection so I knew the original plan of partying late may end a bit earlier than planned but was still planning on having a blast. We arrived at the port in record time had absolutely no traffic on our ride up from the ...

My husband and I just returned from an overnight cruise to nowhere and had a fantastic experience. We're in our early 40's with 2 small children, so this short trip was a perfect pre-Valentine's getaway. Leaving out of NYC was a breeze. We drove up from Philly, went through the Lincoln Tunnel and BAM! There we were! Parked on the deck adjacent to the ship and after a five minute walk were in the ...

Just returned this morning from a one night voyage and was never so happy to be home. Nutshell of this 24 hour trip is as follows: check-in was lengthy and very confusing; state rooms would not be ready for 2 hours and so the line to check your bag was about 100 deep on the ship (only 2 men tagging suitcases); lunch in the main dining room was good but the portions very small (big eaters should go ...

We only needed 2 pts to get us to Platinum status so we decided to book a 1 night cruise in a suite. However, I had noticed that the cruise prices had decreased so I called to see if anything else could be done. And was it!!!!! - we ended up being upgraded to an Owner's Suite - 10004. It had: 4 phones, 3 tv's, 2 bathrooms, 2 balcony's, seating for 15+, etc...It was a shame that we only had it for ...

I went on the one-night Cruise to Nowhere sailing from New York City in November. I live in Manhattan, so it was fairly simple to get to the Manhattan Cruise Terminal, though it's far from the subway if you are taking public transportation. The embarkation process was very smooth and the staff I talked to were all very nice, which helped me to get more excited for the cruise. Aside from a cruise ...

A First-Time Cruiser Takes The Gem To... Nowhere

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I didn't intend to take a cruise to nowhere. Originally, the plan was that my very first cruise would be in March of 2014 aboard the Norwegian Breakaway. I booked it over a year ago as a present to myself for my 50th birthday, even treating myself to an aft-facing balcony. But then I saw the one-night Cruise to Nowhere, and the price was just too good to pass up. So I decided to get my feet wet, ...

Just came back from a 2 day cruise to nowhere out of NYC on the beautiful Norwegian Gem. The ship was absolutely upscale and exceeded my expectations. This was my first cruise ever and I was very pleased with the ship and fantastic service Norwegian provided my and my 4 sisters on this cruise. We had a balcony room which was I would suggest having no more than 2 people per room comfortably. The ...
