Fabulous options for all kinds of food are the mainstay on board the Norwegian Gem, with everything from juicy burgers to succulent sushi. The ship has two main dining rooms—the Grand Pacific and the Magenta—which serve the standard meal options for lunch and dinner. There are several specialty restaurants, too; book your table at Le Bistro for classic French dishes, the Orchid Garden for sushi and sashimi, or an exciting teppanyaki experience with superbly skilled chefs. Head to Cagney’s or the Moderno for two very different steakhouse experiences, or traditional Italian fare at La Cucina. There’s also the highly entertaining Presumed Murdered Luncheon, a midday meal where the help of guests is enlisted to solve a murder mystery.
There are several casual dining options too, at the 24-hour Bali Hai Bar & Grill, as well as the Garden Café buffet, the Blue Lagoon food court, and 24-hour room service.
