  • Simpson, High Moor Lane - Commented on this review

    Did you try to get a table in the Magenta?. We sailed on the Gem for 7 days on 11th September and didn't use the Garden Cafe buffet on an evening once. We would go to the main dinning rooms whenever we where ready & collect a "buzzer" (which gave you 2 for 1 on drinks in the bar whilst you wait) & never waited for more than 20 minutes for a table to become free. The menus changed daily and there was no repitition in the 7 days. Two other points you raised were length of stays in port the itineray for both weeks was no secret you could have easily found out, we took no excursions & all ports were DIY which we planned at home using the internet. As for the rudeness of passengers in my experience a ship full of fellow countrymen is my worst mightmare maybe they can queue but they to can be very rude and obnoxious. We never once went to the theatre (too tired after action packed days) bingo & silly games etc aren't our thing so can't comment on the quality of the evening entertainment. the ship is big enough so nothing overlaps we would sit in the bars & listen to the singers on an evening oblivious to what else was going on elsewhere. NCL freestyle is like Marmite you either love it or you hate it. It would appear that you are just nit picking and could have easily resolved most of the issues with just a little research.

  • Taylor, Glasgow - Commented on this review

    I think you are perhaps more used to cruises which have mostly Brits on board and they tend to get quite huffy about queues and 'foreigners'(mainly American, German, Italian, French and Spanish) not knowing 'the rules' and displaying deplorable manners! How very dare they indeed! We've been on lots of cruises where all sorts of people have not behaved properly in my opinion but the same thing happens regularly here on a trip to Tesco's. Get over it!
