Tips for Alternative Dining onboard Norwegian Gem:

  • Casual attire is fine and very much in keeping with Norwegian Cruise Lines Freestyle cruising.
  • We do suggest no shorts or jeans after 6:00pm.
  • For all alternative restaurants, you will need to make reservations once you are aboard ship. Generally, it is a good idea to reserve dining sooner than later.
  • Hours open are based upon itinerary.
  • Per person dining charges do not include specialty drinks, wine, and beer.
  • How much should I tip at the Alternative Dining Restaurants (Cagney's Steakhouse, La Cucina, Le Bistro, Orchid Garden Asian, Sushi Bar, Teppanyaki, Tequila Latin Tapas Restaurant) on the Norwegian Gem? First, bear in mind that all alcoholic beverages that you pay for will have a gratuity added. The cover charge does include gratuity, however, you may wish to consider giving an extra gratuity to the waiter or waitress who has served you. If the service is exceptional, giving the waiter $5 per person would be most appreciated.
