mooneydiva.......The staterooms on the NCL Gem are conventional in layout, design and decor...not similar to the NCL Epic's layouts!! The Service and meals have always been good to outstanding, the buffet set up is excellent allowing for comfortable dining both insidse and out. There are, indeed, multiple stations for whatever you may like to dine on.
The Specialty dining is first class and well worth the added expense.LeBistro is one of the best French Restaurants for dining on land or sea...We have loved NCL cruising for many years....Free Style has crept onto and into the ships of most other cruiselines today!!
