too large a ship with too many children and not enough pool accessability for the number of guests on the ship

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
food was good, didn't care for the first come first served dinner service, the buffet was always an option, main dining room was attractive


3 out of 5
some of the entertainment was excellent, some fair at best, didn't care for crying babies while trying to hear the entertainment

Service and Staff

3 out of 5

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
the decor was hideous, the pool area too small for the number of guests on the ship, when we docked in Bermuda it was an hour and a half bus ride to get to the part of the island we wanted to see

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
the bed was very uncomfortable, bring a bar of soap as the shower and sink only offer liquid soap dispensers, room was clean and attractive, only news other than BBC was Fox news, major inconvenience
3 out of 5
crystal caves is a must see, restaurant prices are very high, used to be Bermuda's main industry was tourism, now it is the banking and insurance industries and it shows...
Don't Miss: crystal caves

Pros: cabin steward was great, Leo the guitar player outstanding, some of the other entertainment

Cons: the decor, the number of children, the size of the ship, the freestyle dinner seating

Recommends Norwegian Gem? No.
