Norwegian Gem

Kitted out with everything from climbing walls to Champagne bars, Guitar Hero to gourmet food - Norwegian Gem is a shining example of how to do freestyle cruising perfectly. This ship is home to an onboard bowling alley, theatre and art gallery, as well as more than a dozen bars and every culinary experience you could wish for – be it French, Italian, Japanese or American, there are tastes of every continent onboard Norwegian Gem.

About Norwegian Gem

Unwind in one of the ship’s many simmering hot tubs, and find balance at the Ying and Yang Spa and Beauty Salon. The comprehensive Body Waves health club houses all the fitness equipment you could possibly need, as well as a separate yoga and aerobics studio. Norwegian Gem is also home to two large swimming pools and four additional hot tubs.

Staterooms and suites are comfortable and luxurious, with the option of staying nearer to the spa or children’s areas depending on your needs. Choose from oceanview and balcony staterooms, or opt for an inside stateroom, leaving you with some extra cash to spend in your port destinations.

The climbing wall at the top of the ship provides incredible views over the ocean for those brave enough to try and scale it, but if climbing isn’t for you, then you’ll be pleased to hear you can enjoy spectacular panoramas from the spa and Garden Café too. If that’s not enough, you could even spend your evenings taking a casual stroll around the track that circumnavigates the ship.

Whether you’re most looking forward to sunning yourself by the pool or even gambling in the casino, rest assured that Norwegian Gem won’t fail in its mission to keep you entertained.
