At a Glance: A Travel + Leisure World’s Best 2016 winner, placing ninth in the Mega Ocean Ship category. Like its sister ship the Diamond Princess, this elegant 2,677-passenger Gem class is all dark wood, marble, and brass, with enough modern touches (resort-style pampering, crowd-pleasing specialty restaurants) and cruising traditions (formal nights and set seating times) to please almost any passenger.
