never again

Sail Date: December 25, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

the ship itself was nice-average. nothing horrible. the crowds they allowed were unbearable at times and made everybody visibly cranky and defensive about saving seats for shows, meals, etc.
the food was absolutely below average. it was hard to find something that was outstanding in 7 days. i did not.
this is not to say that the staff did not work hard, they did. the quality of many ingredients, coffee, ice creams, etc. was terrible.

Pros: entertainment and cruise director

Cons: the food

Recommends Norwegian Gem? No.
