We embarked from Venice. Arrived at the port terminal at 11:30AM, and were on board by noon. No Problem. Our suite was beautiful, everything we expected and more. We particularly enjoyed the perk of being able to have breakfast and lunch in Cagney's. The breakfast and lunches were wonderful. We had dinner in five specialty restaurants and enjoyed each of them. We really enjoyed the French ...

Background We are just back from a 21 day cruise on the Norwegian Gem. We began our cruise in Venice on Oct 23 with a 7 Day Greek Island Cruise and then on Oct. 30 began a 14 day Spain, Portugal and Transatlantic cruise. Although I booked it as one cruise, we were given credit for two cruises and we became Latitude members after the first week. It was a wonderful trip and we enjoyed it ...

The Gem is a wonderful ship. We been on the Jewel in February and really liked the ship, so it was an easy decision to make. Everything was very well-done, beautiful surroundings, very clean. We really enjoyed being on the Courtyard level and utilized that facility frequently. It was nice to have breakfast or lunch served in the courtyard, without having to even go downstairs. Cagney's is great, ...

We approached this long cruise with great anticipation. We are people who can spend days just hanging out and amusing ourselves and yet love to explore new places. With that in mind, we felt that the combination of a Transatlantic and a Greek Isle B2B cruise would be a perfect adventure for us. And for the most part it was. For some background, we cruised on NCL twice before and have also ...

I have been loyal to Royal (and Celebrity) for over 20 cruises. It was definitely time to try something else, because I was sick and tired of the never changing food and the never changing entertainment on RCCL. In addition I was angry at RCCL´s extremely lousy customer service in Europe. So I decided to give NCL a try. The price was right so I decided book a penthouse suite, facing the front of ...

This was our 10th NCL cruise and first trans-atlantic crossing. The cruise left from Barcelona and we flew in a day early from NYC to be well rested before boarding the ship. Really did very little in Barcelona but roam Las Ramblas for awhile and the Barri. Went to the famous market and had the best ice cream ever. The embarcation was the easiest we have had. We were led to the latitudes area ...

Embarkation: We arrived at the port of NY at 12 pm. Check in went smoothly and we were ushered into the suite passengers waiting area. At 12:45 we were escorted to our cabin by our Butler Jose. Although our cabins were not ready, we were able to leave our carry on bags and head off to lunch in Cagney's. Cabin: We were in a Penthouse Suite (11512) on deck 11 forward right by the elevators.

Our perspective - This was our second NCL TA for my husband and I. We had also previously sailed on the Gem repo between London and Barcelona. Embarkation - We arrived at the Terminal around 12:45.  There were no lines for check in.  By the time we finished with the paperwork, our number had been called and we walked right on the ship.  After a glass of champagne, we enjoyed a leisurely lunch in ...

Here is our review of the Gem's 15 day transatlantic cruise, which departed from New York on Apr 18 and arrived in Barcelona on May 3. Cabin: We were in an AD suite on deck 10 aft. Loved the extra space and wide balcony at the rear of the ship. We were able to use the balcony during the Atlantic crossing even though the weather was cool because the ship blocks a lot of the wind. The only ...
