Thanks to all of you for the answers.
I had that question because I was on the Norvegian Epic and we had to reserve for the 3 différents shows They had so no shows every night.
I suppose that the 7 o'clock show and the 9;30 one are the same on a night.

The Gem usually has two free shows every night - one around 7:00, the other around 9:30. Details will be listed in the Freestyle Daily every night for the next day's shows. Reservations are not taken. The shows are first come, first seated.

Yes. The main theater has a show every night of the cruise. The first show is at 7 PM with an encore presentation at 9:30 PM.
You cannot make reservations for the show. Seating is on a first come first serve basis. The doors open 30 minutes prior to the show.

Of course it will be back from dry dock. They have the refurbishing down to an exact science. They wouldn't have scheduled your cruise if the ship wasn't going to be ready.

Swimmies are probhibited per the FAQ link below. Life jackets shouldn't be a problem if it's a personal item you bring with you, however you cannot use the ship's life jacket for use in the pool.

Question

Can I carry on a carry on bag instead of checking it in?

Greetings, would I be able to embark/disembark with a 22" spinner carry on by simply bringing it on the ship myself or must the bag be checked in at the port?

You can bring carry-on luggage (i.e., 22" spinner) on the ship with you, however you will not be able to leave it in your room right away as staterooms are usually not available until later in the afternoon.

You are allowed a carry on bag. I am not sure that there is a size limitation. I have seen people with large suitcases that they called their carry on that they brought on board instead of checking it at the port. I would think that you would not have any type of problems.

You are allowed to carry it onboard the ship. There are no restrictions. However, normally no one carries their luggage onboard the ship (other than a carry on bag), so you will have to insist on taking it onboard yourself.

yes you can. Just slap a luggage tag on the case of water and check it with your luggage. You may want to consider wrapping some packing tape around it just so it does not break open when they are handling it and placing it on the ship.

You are allowed to bring your own sodas, juices and water. You can check them or carry them on board. The products must be sealed or risk confiscation by the security. Make sure you tag them with your room tags so that they are delivered to your stateroom along with your luggage.
In some ports, they will not check in your soda/water cases with your bags but you can still carry them onboard with you.

Many of the bars/lounges may have the footballs games on; keep in mind they use satellite signal, and generally speaking the international broadcast, so you may not necessarily get your regional game, but a game none the less. More often than not though, they should have a NY team on of they are playing.
