Age 60s

This is the second time we took the Breakaway, same cabin, same itinerary as last January. I love the larger balcony because we use it a lot. Last year they had one lounger, two chairs, and a small table, but this year was even better: two loungers, two chairs, and a large table, so we were able to eat breakfast on the balcony whenever the weather permitted, and I was able to do my yoga on one of ...

This was one of our best vacations ever. My wife and I have cruised before, but it was the first time for our daughter. She is 10 years old, and after countless and I mean countless trips to Disney we need a Mickey break. So we booked The Norwegian Gem, we got a fantastic price and my wife hates to fly. So leaving out of New York is easy because we live in South Jersey. Embarkation was so easy, ...

We arrived at the Pier at 10:15am, gave our luggage to a porter and walked right through the security gates without a problem, we went through the Latitudes line in 5 minutes,checked in and were sitting in the lounge area at 10:35am waiting for the call to enter the ship..At 12 Noon we were called by numbers we had number 10 and boarded the ship. It was an easy process, no hassle, no worry quick ...

Departed from Bayonne (not listed in departure ports list) SUNSHINE - Ship is elegant and gorgeous. The central lighting in the MDR is amazing! Likewise the twelve-deck towers of glass elevators in the atrium. I loved looking across the atrium space to gathering areas on the forward side. - Cabin stewards were wonderful. The halls were always full of stewards going about their business and ...

10 day NCL Gem review out of NY to S. Carribean

Just arrived back from 10 day trip on Gem out of NY to southern Caribbean (5 ports). NCL does this cruise 4 times a year. Right up front I will say our last cruise was on Princess and received last minute free upgrade to mini-suite, so hard to compare with inside cabin on this trip. This trip was educational conference so wanted to try and stay within budget with inside cabin, now regret ...

My goal this time around is to keep this short and sweet — or at least shorter than most of my previous reviews. :) I don't believe reviews that are all glowing or all scathing, so you'll find a mix here. The bottom line is that anything that momentarily annoyed me or compared unfavorably to past cruises did not affect my overall appreciation of this cruise at all. This was a wonderful trip, the ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 80s

- Check-in very good after we figured out there was a separate area for 'suite' check-in. Wouldn't have enjoyed the long lines we began with. - Cabin...kind-of new bordello in appearance, but cute too..spacious and good bathroom. - 'Butler'...a joke. Had to run to restaurant most of the time to get milk for coffee and usually had to keep asking for the coffee for the coffee maker. I think the ...

My husband frequently says that happiness is who you're with. If he's right, and I think he is, then the NCL Gem is a place that should make most people happy. My reference point for gauging any vacation is that I have never been anywhere that's perfect. I'm holding out that rating for Heaven. Every trip I've ever taken has a few bumps along the way. The real test of whether it's a good ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

Just finished our first cruise on HAL - the Noordam Xmas and New Year cruise out of New York. Overall we had a brilliant cruise, but this was mainly due to the friends we cruised with, the brilliant tours we did, and the itinerary. We have only cruised Celebrity before this one so thought it was interesting to note the differences with HAL, some we liked but many we did not. So overall, we have ...

First Time Cruiser

This was a one night cruise to nowhere that NCL called a dinner and dancing cruise. Boarding was easy since we didn't have to check our bags and they just checked licenses for ID. The Gangway was VERY Steep, but we got up to the ship and were ready to go. They allowed us to board early at about 11:30am and our rooms were not to be ready until 2pm. We ate our lunch in the Windows Dining Room. The ...
