7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)

Ship: Norwegian Gem
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

Food is bad--they are stingy --they cut the lobster in half and serve cocktail shrimp the size of a pea, steak is hard and not edible. The main dining room food is of poor quality. The desert is of very poor quality as well . Stick with Royal or Carnival. This is my first NCL and will be the last.
