Life aboard Norwegian Gem
Until October 2018 Norwegian Gem homeports in New York (Manhattan), at a pier just a short walk from Broadway and all the sights of the city. Each year from October to March take a 10- or 11-night cruise to four islands on the Eastern Caribbean, with five sea days. For other months seven-night cruises head for Port Canaveral, Nassau, and the company resort at Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. In June, September and October very popular scenic cruises leave New York to visit the magnificent New England coast and the Canadian Maritime Provinces. From November 2018 Norwegian Gem will be based in New Orleans, to sail the Western Mediterranean. For visitors to New York, joining a cruise provides rest, no unpacking and packing bags daily, and the relaxation of wandering around small tourist ports.

Entering service in 2007 at 93,530 GT and carrying 2,394 passengers, Norwegian Gem presents a “Freestyle" cruising concept, which allows guest to dine in any of the 12 restaurants (some pay-extra), in casual attire, at times of their own choosing. Inside décor is bright to attract the young and active. The ship is particularly suited to families, indeed it is a floating leisure centre. Watch your extra costs as they mount up. Accept the usual queues that come with a large ship. The level of hospitality is very good. All ages are well catered for. Dress is casual. The cheery and welcoming staff range over more than 60 nationalities. This is an excellent value-for-money vessel, whether on a tight or a generous budget.

Accommodation
All cabins have tea/coffee making sets, TV channels and movies, mini-fridge, separate toilet and enclosed shower, and European duvets. Two single beds can combine to make a double bed. Cabins have bunk beds to accommodate four (though crowded), and some have inter-connecting doors for families. The ocean-view (two to four guest) cabins have a rectangular window or a porthole. Balcony staterooms accommodate a third or fourth person on a sofa bed. These rooms are larger with a sitting area and full height glass doors opening to a private balcony. There are no single cabins, and 27 cabins and suites are wheelchair-accessible.

All eight classes of suites are lavishly furnished, have separate bath and shower, and come with butlers who can serve all meals in-suite. Mini-suites accommodate four. Aft-facing mini-suites have an exceptional view. The two-bedroom family suites accommodate up to six, with a separate children’s bedroom. The Haven suites, a class within the ship, have access to their own private courtyard. Haven suites include two and three-bedroom Garden Villas, Owner’s Suite, and Penthouses. The Haven three-bedroom Garden Villa staterooms, at up to 4700 ft2 (440 m2), are among the largest at sea and come with living room, dining room, baby grand piano, outdoor dining area and terrace, private garden, and three separate bedrooms each with king or queen-size bed, private luxury bath (overlooking the ocean) and CD/DVD library. Two bedrooms also feature a full bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower.

Food and Dining
The ship has 16 dining options, and Freestyle Dining means you can eat anywhere, anytime, and with whomever, in formal or casual dress. The two main dining rooms are Magenta and Grand Pacific. Check the video screens to find out how busy each venue is, make a reservation, and find out the wait time. Alternative restaurants include: Cagney’s Steak House serving steaks in a 30s setting, and carved meats at Moderno Churrascaria. Blue Lagoon for trendy fast food, Le Bistro with classic French gourmet, La Cucina Italian Restaurant for traditional Italian fare, and Orchid Garden Asian Restaurant for authentic Japanese/Thai/Chinese. Specialty restaurants have a surcharge and may need reservations.

Breakfast and lunch are served via open-seating at Magenta and Grand Pacific, but during good weather try the Garden Café and aft deck Great Outdoors Café. Fast food around the clock is at Blue Lagoon. Bali Hai Bar and Grill is one of a number of grills and many other eateries that serve specialty beers, coffees, gelato, fast food and buffet items. Between meals assess the offerings of the 13 bars and lounges.

Entertainment
The three-deck Stardust Theatre offers Las-Vegas-style razzle-dazzle production shows and cabaret acts. Many bands and solo musicians provide dance music and entertainment throughout the ship. The ship also features library, internet cafe, games room, a cinema with moving seats, a casino, and really comfortable cards and writing rooms.

During sea days, apart from the usual activities, are lifestyle-improvement presentations on health and fitness. The wide range of fitness and recreation services includes four bowling lanes, rock-climbing wall, adult water slides, fitness classes, gymnasium, courts, mini-golf, two golf-driving nets, shuffleboard, ball courts, an oversized chessboard, beautiful spa, six hot tubs, whirlpools, and sundry other pools. Facilities and activities for youngsters are outstanding. Children have their own pool and wet 'n' wild water park. Teenagers have their own meeting places at Metro Centre and Video Arcade. This is a real family ship.
