Default GEM out of NYC

Thinking of crusing on the GEM out of NYC. There are some good prices on Suites (CAT AF) is a suite worth the extra $200 each?
Where in NYC does the ship depart? Bayonne? Brooklyn?
I read something about breakfast in Cagney's? Is this for all suite people?
What does it mean Butler service available? That means you have to pay more, right? On the lower cat suites can one use the private areas on decks 14 or 15? What other benifits are there for suite passangers?

Cat AF is a mini suite and as such it is larger than a standard balcony cabin. The best thing about suites on NCL is using a butler and concierge. But with a mini suite you do not get that. We had one on the New Years Cruise and it was worth it for the size but you do not get the most helpful service from concierges as there are 140 mini suites and you get a number to call but not a personal concierge. Breakfast in Cagneys is for penthouses and above. the areas on 14 and 15 are not open to AF suite cabin levels. Butler service has been ended for AF categories according to our concierge who just got off the Gem.
Oh and Bayonne is in New Jersey and is where Royal Carib. and Celebrity go out of. NCl goes out of the West Side of NYC, the traditional Luzury Liner Row.
