Norwegian Gem is a Jewel!

Norwegian Gem
Last week, Leon and I were invited by Norwegian Cruise Lines to sail on the Norwegian Gem, the newly-launched sister ship of the Pearl.
Here we are on the snowy deck before leaving Boston!

I love this ship, from the giant Wii system and espresso bar in the lobby, to the four-lane bowling alley (an industry first), to the magnificent Garden Villa suites, it's a modern and magical environment for all ages!

My favorite features:

Norwegian Gem* Freestyle Dining:there are 12 dining rooms and specialty restaurants onboard, some have premium-priced menus, others are inclusive in the cruise price - wonderful choice of casual or formal dining, super room service, great buffets, eat when you want - love it.

* Lounges and Entertainment: 11 bars and lounges onboard; the Spinnaker Lounge is a gorgeous place to just hang out in the evening, with nightly entertainment; the bowling alley is amazing.
*Virtual Golf: compete with your golf pals at this giant-screen Wii golf system in the Deck 7 lobby.

Courtyard Villas: Super luxury! These high-end villas are like having your own private yacht...grand piano in the living room, courtyard pool area with retractable roof; they sleep ten and are the ultimate family or group cruise accommodation.

norwegian gem suiteSuites: Perfect for a Honeymoon or Destination Wedding Cruise! These spacious suites offer personalized service and privacy.

Do you know there is a way of affording trips like this through a new website that is just about to launch? Couples can sign up and they are given a web page that their guests can log on to and pay a gift towards the honeymoon total!
The system is going live in about four weeks and anyone that visits from this blog can sign on with the code AB271 in the promo box. They can open an account for free!
