  3. Norwegian Gem
We were taking a cruise for my 50th birthday. We chose this cruise because it was a great deal. We have always wanted to try Norwegian. The free at see is amazing. We did have a good time. We found it to be comparable to other cruises. The choice of restaurants was really good. We really like the bars and lounges, most of them have either music playing or live entertainment. We enjoyed the dining experience but found the dinner choices to be out of the ordinary. We would of liked more substantial food choices. But the choices of free dining options was plentiful. We really loved like there was 24 hour dining choices. It was the ship that didn't sleep something always going on. It was also more of a mature crowd. Didn't have all the partying going on like other ships. The debarking experience was terrible. But over all we enjoyed it.

It was a little old. It seemed a little small. It was very clean.
