Friends from Asia asked told us about the cruise and invited us to join them. We opted for a balcony midships. The cabin was fine. Bath and shower were always clean. Food was good, but bland.

All of the tours ...

We've always been pleased with NCL cruise lines, perhaps what we like the most is that you almost feel as your a part of the family with the staff of the ship. Many of them come to know you by name and are always smiling and pleasant, not to say that there aren't a few sourpusses, but the majority are great! The ship was a bit on the tired side and had peeling/chipped paint throughout, including ...

Price point was good. Trying different lines to see what we like. Food was GREAT way better than better than others. People were of a little bit younger.

Not easy to get around. Person at the food line ...

Our third European cruise with different ports. The Gem is much the same as the Jewel which we were on last year in the same category suite. This time we had a total of 6 people. Embarkation in Venice-We arrived by train since we were already in Italy with our kids. We made the mistake of using the baggage service we thought was run by cruise lines but NOT. 5 euro per bag to get to the ship. It ...
