One of the most distinctive freestyling ships out there. It's not just the wealth of activities that will impress you, but the class and sheer style of their presentation.

The Norwegian Gem is NCL's most elegant freestyling cruise yet. Sister to the Norwegian Pearl, the Norwegian Gem aims to capitalise on all the fantastic properties of the Pearl to make the best freestyling cruise yet. That means getting the freedom you really want from a cruise, including unfixed dining times and dressing up as and when you feel like it! It's not just about freedom, either - it's about choice. Japanese Teppanyaki, bungee trampolining, yoga and karaoke all assemble an incredible host of options which most other ships can only hope to offer.

Under the extensive refurbishment project The Norwegian Edge announced in 2015, Norwegian Gem received a wealth of updates and refurbishments to bring her to the forefront of modern day cruising. Updates included a brand new photo gallery, a complete makeover for Italian restaurant La Cucina, a renovated Bliss Ultra Lounge, refresehed decor and more.

Cuisine and Dining on Norwegian Gem

With 11 bars and lounges to explore, topped with 12 restaurants to dine in, the Norwegian Gem excels itself in offering all the drinking and eating options you would care for. Rather than offering just several places to eat, the Gem's strength is that everywhere offers something a little different. So if you fancy a light Tapas to share with a group, then you can head to the Tequila Latin restaurant. If you're more in the mood for a great American steak, then Cagney's Steakhouse will curb your hunger perfectly in a brilliant 1930s style.

  • Grand Pacific Main Dining Room
  • Magenta Main Dining Room
  • Le Bistro French Restaurant
  • Orchid Garden Asian Restaurant
  • Cagney's Steakhouse
  • Flamencos Latin/Tapas Restaurant
  • The Great Outdoors
  • La Cucina Italian Restaurant - updated in late 2015 under the Norwegian Edge project
  • Blue Lagoon
  • Garden Café

Entertainment on Norwegian Gem

As you'll come to expect, drinking works in much the same manner. Care for a specialist malt whiskey to cap off the night? Then you'll do well to find yourself in the Maltings Beer & Whiskey Bar where you can really let the flavours swirl in this relaxing and cosy atmosphere. Everything from cocktails to coffee and fine wines are all taken care of too, adding to the stream of choice on offer during your cruise.

  • Spinnaker Lounge
  • Sky High Bar

Spa & Fitness on Norwegian Gem

The leisure and entertainment onboard excels in every way. The jogging track lets you fit in your morning run with ease whilst offering you gorgeous views of the ocean. The outdoor courts allow for a spot of tennis, volleyball or even basketball for even more of a sports kick. Of course, there's theatre should you prefer a less active day at sea and even a cigar club for the connoisseurs to gather with their favourite cigar and tipple. The list keeps on growing with a fitness centre, spa and salon all just waiting for your call.

  • Ying and Yang Spa & Beauty Salon
  • Body Waves Fitness Center
  • Jogging/Walking Track
  • Basketball/Volleyball/Tennis Court

Recreation on Norwegian Gem

The library, card room and art gallery are all available for a quiet afternoon. The Norwegian Gem also remains a brilliant choice for family cruises, with the excellent childcare centre, arcade zone and dedicated kids pool!

It's clear that the Norwegian Gem is primed for every outcome and it's impossible not to be impressed with everything NCL Cruises have managed to craft. With sailings from the UK, you can easily take Baltic and Mediterranean cruises, also as a cruise line based in the USA, it means it's equally a great ship for American and Caribbean cruises. If you prefer your cruises informal and chilled, this is the perfect ship to cater your needs.
