  1. Yes, I work nearby the Boston port and have to be tortured by cruise ships sailing by without me!!
  2. In the past I have seen them set up a table at the port, look for a table in the waiting area.
  3. On the havenless Dawn we have stayed in almost every suite category, we had a great butler and concierge when we were in one of the DOS. It may have been due to a great concierge, Hanno and a great butler, Dominic. I have been in the haven twice on the Gem, 1st time in the DOS, which I never wanted to leave and the 2nd time in a H4, I think the service was the same. I think I am a very "relaxed" cruiser. We don't ask for much, just don't bring me yucky hors d'oeuvres in the afternoon, I prefer BLT quarters.
  4. Everyone tips different as you can see. I usually tip my steward $50-75, depending on service and personality. On the Gem we had a Haven Valet, I tipped him $50. Concierge $75-100, same with Butler, and how often I have utilized them. Have a great cruise.
  5. Ok recent Gemsters, we were on the Gem last April and the bartender "G" in the Mojito Bar was probably the best bartender we have ever been served by. Does anyone know if he is still onboard? We are cruising the Gem May 3rd and I haven't had a good mojito since last April!!

  14. Has anyone been in both GV on the Gem? Is one "better" than the other? Sent from my SM-G930P using Forums mobile app
  15. This was my 2nd diversion. My 1st was in Oct 2014. We wound up in Nassau and Great Stirrup Caye. I heard more complaining on that cruise than this one. I found out the night before. I tossed 3 sweatshirts in my suitcase and off we went. I totally enjoyed the cruise, met lots of nice people. Actually met a couple who are booking the Gem with us next May.
