18-20? Not the cruise to take

Sail Date: March 11, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Food in the main dining was awful... we figure that was on purpose in order to entice you into spending and additional $25 in their 'speciality' restaurants, which took up any free inch of space on the ship. Glass of low end wine at dinner w/auto gratuity is $10/each and the pour is about 6oz. The ship was very unglamourous and looked more like what you expect from Carnival kiddie ships.
We were very disappointed. If you are 18-20, you will be throwed out of the only place you would want to go (dancing/nightlife) but you are welcome to join the older folks like me.. Spring break and the 3 college kids I'm with have nothing to do at 11PM?? They couldn't wait to go back to campus!!

Pros: disembarkment

Cons: food and lack of night time options for 18-20 year olds

Recommends Norwegian Gem? No.

Ship Quality
not impressive al all.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
think I covered that
ship director was great and the comedian was great. Then there was that awkward talentless, most know someone, women juggler. In one word 'painful' to watch!
Cabin / Stateroom
