Default norwegian?

hey guys has anyone tried NCL before...we're considering Norwegian gem out of NYC this new years!! lol but im a little apprehensive about it, since ive only been on rccl and princess...and it's sailing outta cold weather. There's gonna be another family with us and they know how much our family loves cruising so I want them to like it too but i cant even say for myself if i would since i dont know what to expect from NCL ...so suggestions would be much appreciated!

NCL, as far as i know, isn't your best choice for a cruise. However, I could be wrong in this instance mainly because:
1. New Years Cruise
2. Its a new ship.
If you have a choice between Norwegian and Carnival Corp (CCL HAL Princess, etc...) or RCI (Celebrity and RCCL) Pick one of the latter of the two. It'll be a LOT more fun.

You cant possibly rate Norwegian higher than CCL or RCCL though. There's just no way.

Yeah I wouldn't say it'd be the best choice either but the pricing is really good for new years and we havent been to those ports yet. But the "freestyle" part prolly makes it different from what im normally used to.
I wanted to introduce my sisters friend's family to either princess or rccl just cause we're more familiar with them etc. I have nothing against giving ncl a try though..but i hope it all works out in the end...i'm really pushing for my parents to book just any cruise during the holidays!!
