On Caribbean sailings, most shore excursions make the most of sunny weather and the region's beautiful water, with activities such as snorkelling, kayaking, diving and swimming with marine wildlife all popular options.

Things to remember: Onboard the NCL Norwegian Gem
Here are a few things to keep in mind as you plan your holiday onboard the NCL Norwegian Gem:
  • The atmosphere onboard is very relaxed and the dress code reflects this, with casualwear allowed day and night. If you'd like to dress up, the Grand Pacific is the place to dine.
  • Daily gratuities are expected and will be added to your onboard account. The currency is the US dollar.
  • Families are welcome, with a dedicated youth area and organised activities to keep children of all ages happy.   

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!

Specialty Dining Restaurants

Dining aboard Norwegian is about having choices. Widen your palette further and choose from the specialty restaurants for a cover charge or á la carte. Whether it's a cheeseburger you have a desire for, or Coq au Vin, your dinner is ready when you are. And if you book a Specialty Dining Package, you can savor an array of the specialty restaurants for one special price.

Moderno - Deck 13

  • If you’re looking for a unique experience, our authentic Brazilian steakhouse is a must. Start with an impressive salad bar of imported cheeses, olives, cured meats, ceviche and specialty salads. Be sure to save room for the delicious skewers of slow-roasted meats including beef, pork, lamb and chicken – all carved tableside by our Pasadores.

Teppanyaki - Deck 7

  • Flying shrimp. Onion volcanoes. Twirling knives. The sizzles and surprises never cease at our authentic Japanese Hibachi restaurant. Sit around a lively shared table as a skillful chef slices, chops and grills steak, seafood and chicken on a large steel grill right before your eyes. Our chilled, sake-infused Wasabi Cocktail will have you flipping too.

Cagney's Steakhouse - Deck 13

  • Steak is the standard at the American-style steakhouse. Pull up a seat along The Waterfront and take your pick from premium cuts of Certified Angus Beef®. Your mouth will water, so sip your favorite cocktail in anticipation. And don’t forget to order the made-from-scratch jumbo crab cakes and a side of the famous truffle fries.

La Cucina - Deck 12

  • Enjoy the flavors of the Tuscan countryside al fresco alongside the sea, or indoors at tables with room for old friends and new. Dine on classic dishes where you can taste the freshness of every tomato used to make an exquisitely delicious sauce. Try a twist on a classic like lobster fettuccine, or keep it purist with a osso bucco. Just when you think you’re out, they’ll pull you back in with a toasty espresso and some macadamia nut ice cream. Delizioso!

Le Bistro French Restaurant - Deck 6

  • Have it au poivre or just go straight for the bouillabaisse at the signature French restaurant in the atrium of 678 Ocean Place. Elegant interiors, crisp white linens and attentive servers make this an intimate dining experience reminiscent of a Parisian café. By the end of your meal, you’ll might just be proclaiming c’est magnifique!

Sushi - Deck 8

  • Take a seat at the sushi bar and watch in amazement as chefs expertly slice, carve, and roll the freshest ingredients into works of delicious art.
