We were on the Gem. If you liked the Spirit, you'll love the Gem.

thats good to know since we liked the spirit. did you try any of the specialty resturants on the ship? (on the gem) February 17th, 2014 07:49 PM

We did Cagney's Steakhouse, La Cucina Italian, Le Bistro French, and Teppanyaki. All were very good.

I always tell my clients when traveling on NCL to plan on paying an additional $100 per person for food while on the ship because, in my opinion, the food in the main dining room is just okay - nothing special. But the specialty restaurants are very good and you'll want to eat in them several times during the week.

Just sailed the Gem March 17-26 with a friend and her children 7 and 9 . I did not try any of the specialty restaurants. Last minute travel changes due to the snow ate up most of the spending budget. The ship was sold out but never felt crowded. One time there was a 1/2 hr wait for a table in the Main dining room we just walked to the Magenta dining room and were seated right away. The service on the ship was friendly and wonderful. The children's program " splash academy " was great and fun for the girls. They wanted to be there whenever it was open. I would take this ship again.

I agree with the $100.00 Is there a bar in the casino. I was looking at the pictures and i couldn't see if there was one in there. I know in the spirit there was one.
