Trip Report NCL's GEM - So Aptly named

Jump to last reply

Sailing out of NYC is so easy.

Booked an inside cabin on Deck 9 close to elevators as a single @ a great rate. The downside of this cruise were the ports: Cape Canaveral, private island & Nassau.
Upside was the fantastic staff; a plethora of specialty restaurants & constant daily Staff activities w/1 main show each evening shown twice plus 1 or 2 other evening activities.

For parents, the kids program was very good & children were quite happy from what we observed.

Weather was balmy once we were out of NY area w/constant music entertainment poolside. Plus the usual contests, ice-carving demo, etc. Casino was always packed.
Bingo is quite expensive.

Schedule was changed so we overnighted in Nassau. One can take the $4 ferry over to Paradise island & @ Atlantis pay $39 to view the Dig, Shark pool etc avoiding the $119 ship excursion OR go after 6 p.m. when there is no fee. However ferry stops at 5:30 p.m. so one has to take a cab.

We had a CruiseCritic Meet & greet which was attended by all top officers w/refreshments offered & had a chance to chat w/the Captain, Chef, Hotel Director, etc.
Events Coordinator instrumental in helping me chair this.

Loved the French restaurant cusine. 2 Main Dining rooms w/the Pacific much more pleasant. One side of menu never changes; other side has daily specialty w/about 4 other choices in apps, entrees & desserts. The topside buffet always packed w/many many choices including soft-serve & regular ice cream offerings.

We embarked @ noon; and I self-disemarked @ 8:10 w/plenty of cabs waiting.
The staff was very organized in every way.

Ask away for more details.
