Ship Overview

Sail Date: October 08, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Well layed out.. easy to find specific locations.. elevators were very timely,
the hot tubs could have been hotter. They were at 98 degrees F.. that is prettey cool.. should be at leat at 102 F.

Pros: Great food, super service on board

Cons: 15% gratuity added to all drinks, pricing of a glass of wine ( poor quality)-this company needs to get a better wine stewart to select the wine... very mediocre and extremely high priced.

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France
Take a walking tour of old city Nice.
Lisbon, Portugal
Tour it yourself.. great exercise, super small sites to see
Gibraltar (U.K.)
Nothing but a big market for the Brits.
Naples, Italy
Pompii is a must. Mocate a local cab diver to show you the city. Much cheaper than the tours and a better experiebce
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
DO NOT take a ship tour. Rushed, no time to experience any of the Vatican or Rome. Poor quality lunch. Better to get atour from the port through a local, or take the train into Rome and do it yourself
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
DO NOT take a ship offered tour. Poor quality, rushed, the lunch was - can you belive this- in a French Hotel!!!
Vigo, Spain
Self guided walking tour... super small cafe's to visit
