Norwegian Gem

Review Summary

I was VERY disappointed with the lack of pools for small children. This is a ship with Nickelodeon inspired entertainment, geared towards kids, and the only kiddie pool was pretty much for newborns with 3 inches of water in it. My son is four, however, the main pool was too deep for me to hold him in it as he can not swim and I was not tall enough to touch and hold him. He could not \"swim\" on the boat at all. The Dawn had a much better kid area.
