  1. Book all your excursions and dinner reservations before your cruise. Some ships require reservations for entertainment, if so book them as well.
  2. Go to guest services and have holes punched in our cards for our lanyards then walk around.
  3. We just got back from Bermuda, on the Gem, May 24th. The blended drinks, ie: Bushwacker, Strawberry daquiri, Pina Colata, etc all came with paper straws. They lasted long enough to finish the drink.
  4. I want to thank everyone for responding to my question. I will be checking the mattress, etc prior to unpacking. Thank you namaste1223, your reply is the most reassuring.
  5. I am going on the Gem in May and read a review about Bedbugs on the same cruise ship from January 2019. https://*****/ship/norwegian-gem/review/494389 I couldn't sleep last night, not sure how to relieve my anxiety. What kind of precautions do you take?
  6. My husband is an occasional drinker and I rarely drink, but we choose then drink package because out of all the free at sea promotions its seems like the best value for us. I downloaded the UDP list (http://www.grantmkt.net/escape/NCL_UBP_FAV_DRINKS.pdf) We'll order drinks and take a sip, if we don't like it we move on to the next without a thought.
  7. Hi Can anyone elaborate on the dress code for the Grand Pacific restaurant: "Grand Pacific is the ship's dress-up restaurant in the evenings." Does my husband have to wear a suit jacket? He was planning on taking Dockers and a button down shirt, is that appropriate? Thanks
