Atlantis was well worth the trip. The best and most beautiful resort I have ever visited. Water park is beyond description.
Don't Miss: Atlantis

Pros: The ship is beautiful, cabins were much larger than I expected. On previous cruises we were very aware of noise fromother cabins. this time we werepleased to discover the room was very well insulated from outside noise. The window was large , we enjoyed our views .

Cons: I felt there was much too much emphasis on money making by the NCL staff at each event. Every opportunity was exploited to make more money. Instant tickets before shows, shopping on the ship etc..

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!
