Not a happy and good cruise. by kellerlion69

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Gem

Sorry but not a very memorable one. To many children, not much for grown ups except drinking. Not sure why Turks and Caicos was cancelled as carnival had to issues getting into port. Best of all I got Covid on this non memorable vacation.

Enjoyed the cruise and the destinations by louisalleyne

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Gem

Our first NCL cruise, had some hiccups, long wait line at embarking, moderate rough seas on way to first destination. Overall food was good both in restaurants and buffets. Staff was quite friendly at all times

Good Cruise by ldobriko

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Gem

The cruise was our first after Covid. Felt safe since cruise capacity was much smaller. Drinks were good and not more expensive than usual.

Great to sail again by AnitaJ4

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Gem

We were happy to be able to cruise again. There were only about 1100 passengers aboard so it was wonderful.The crew was outstanding!San juan was a waste as we docked at 4 pm, and they skipped StThomas but nice time at other ports.

10 day cruise by marejeterfan2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Gem

I have been on many of cruises and never had such a windy vacation, not sure if March is always like this. The ship was very clean and awesome service on the ship. Everyone was so nice and the food was very good. My only complaint was we lost an excursion at St Thomas, we couldnt go due to ship issues and weather. I really feel we should be compensated with money back or future cruise credit.

A great trip on probably the best ship I have ever cruised on. by jleslie48

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Gem

I cannot stress how well designed the Gem is. It just absorbs the guests and it doesn't feel crowded wherever you go. I have neve been on another ship that handles the number of guests on the ship better.

We had a fantastic cruise even though we missed 4 of the 5 ports. by wgeewiz

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Gem

We took the chance of cruising during the virus. We were looking forward to visiting all 5 ports especially Tortola. We didn't think that we would only visit one. The captain did his best to stay in warm waters for a few days to help us to be able to take advantage of the pool. NCL was very generous to the passengers who were disappointed with the lack of visiting the ports we had paid to visit. Thank you for making a bad situation better.

40 % full— Safe from Covid by tom61mos

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Gem

I love the Gem- six times on this ship. Charleston in January- not a Great Idea. Florida was welcoming— Not getting into their own Private Island wasn’t SAD! Jasper the Cruise Director name should be “Casper”. He was only available at Show time and annoying announcements.

Wonderful Cruise experience overall by Devendra

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Gem

Good experience as first time cruiser. Food/Restaurant department was great as they accommodated our dietary requirements very well. They can improve by offering eggless/vegan bakery items (cakes, pastries etc.) as kids couldn't enjoy the available offerings. They tried to make eggless cake but it didn't come out good

Festive by linda3249

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Gem

Since we had been on this cruise in 2019 we were looking forward to enjoying it again. Unfortunately, the mask mandate caused much stress for us. What is the point of being fully vaccinated and tested before you board? This was a huge spoiler!
