Norwegian Gem Review


Pros and Cons

Pros: there are both main-stage and nightclub performances by Second City; the ship's tranquil library offers a quiet escape with a sea view; Courtyard Villa accommodations are like a ship within a ship and have a private pool area.

Cons: there is a fee for use of the thermal suites in the spa; Freestyle dining doesn't mean you can get to eat precisely when you want to; for such a large ship, the Internet center is tiny.
