Great Fun!!!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Jewel | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


We all had a great time, it was my daughter's first cruise so was nice to have her enjoy it.  My sister, her daughter and I had taken this one before so knew what to expect.  We were not disappointed.  Our tours were also enjoyable.  The only downside was we were unable to dock in Costa Maya but understood safety was very important to Norwegian Cruise Line.  We found that another reason to use that company when we cruise.  They are a good value, good food, good people that take care of not only our rooms but also make sure we have a wonderful time.

Excellent customer service

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Jewel | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


This ship needs a remodel, i.e. the carpet in our room was dirty looking, the deck chairs are worn and some in disrepair, etc..  The staff on this ship is however, is second to none.  They provide a level of customer service that is hard to find in these times.  In all areas, customer service, wait staff, cabin stewards, they all go out of there way to be sure you are happy and have everything you need in order for you vacation to be an exceptional experience.

Very Good Spring Break Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Jewel | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


We had to choose a spring break cruise because my daughter teaches. Alabama and Arkansas schools were on break and we meet a lot of people from both states. Having my grown son and grown daughter traveling with me, we shared a Mini-Suite with Balcony that was set up with twin beds for my son and I and the full size sofa bed for my daughter. My daughter said that the privacy curtain separating the sleep areas not only gave privacy for dressing but it was also sound proof where she didn't hear us snoring. Free style dining was good. The two main dining room had similiar menus. The speciality dining rooms were good, but may not worth their additional costs. I compliment the Captain, Master Kenneth - when we arrived at Costa Maya, waves were breaking over the docks and he made the very good decision to not attempt to dock and set sail for New Orleans. The two days of sailing was a great time to relax and enjoy the ship. Because we were not able to dock at Costa Maya, Norwegian Cruise Lines refunded the cost of our shore excursions. This was my first cruise above a Norwegian Cruise Lines vessel and I was very impressed with the ship's operation, the cabins and the crew.

Western Caribbean March 2014

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Jewel | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


This was our first cruise and we had a great time.  The crew onboard the Norwegian Jewel made this an unforgettable vacation.  They were all very friendly, funny, upbeat and went out of their way to make certain that everyone had an outstanding vacation.  The food, especially in the specialty restaurants was top notch.  We would definitely recommend this cruise.

Great fun for the family!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Jewel | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2014


We enjoyed this cruise to the Western Caribbean as we had not been to these places today. The ports of call were good and varried. We enjoyed some of the excursions via NCL and then found a few others of our own.  The food was good, and then repetitive. I would like to see more changes in the menu in the dining rooms from night to night. We have cruised with NCL before and enjoyed the food much better with variety than we did this trip. The ship is about to go to dry dock we understand for upgrades. Also, the sports deck was great but limited for the use which my guys were not happy about. The entertainment each night was good as it was varried, but since NCL advertises other entertainment, I was a little disapppinted in what the Jewel had to offer. We did like the magician and the comedian, especially the upclose and personal things they did on the last day at sea. This was good for the youth on board. 

 

Our cabin was wonderful, the steward was fantastic and we really were happy with him.  

 

Would recommend this cruise to families of all ages.

3/16/14 NCLJewel

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Jewel | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2014


This was our first experience on NCL. It was a good cruise but I doubt we will visit them again. 

Food was okay, first time at fine dining restaurant took over 2 hours. Regular menus, thin steaks. Just not with it. Shouldn't have to pay extra for a nice meal.

Limited cigar smoking areas, felt like cigar smoking should be allowed on balconies as long as door was shut, they allow cigarette smoking.

Night shows were fantastic and really made the cruise. Best high light of trip.

Staff really made an effort trying to meet expectations of guests.

Excursions too speedy for what is offered.

Tips for Norwegian Jewel

THE CHOCOLATE BAR WAS AWESOME

Dining room is less crowded the later you go. If you have to wait for a table, they offer you a free glass of champagne ~ a win, win for all!

The Star Bar seemed to be the least busy and the evening Bar Tender there would chat and was interested in learning about us as much as we were interested in learning about him!

Cheapest specialty drinks in the spinnaker 9-12

Book at least one speciality restaurant - it's worth it. Cagney's was amazing!

We ate the breakfast buffet on deck 12 every day - excellent food and no wait! It was freestyle (your own time) in the dining room, so similar to waiting at a restaurant. On the evenings we ate in the dining room, we went early and never waited in line.

DECK 13 CAGNEY'S WAS THE BEST FOR BREAKFAST, DECK 12 THE GARDEN WAS THE BEST ALL AROUND FOR CHOICES.

My husband noticed about the 2nd day the colors of the carpet for which side of the ship we were on. Certain elevators didn't go to our floor. He noticed that if we were on the side with the purple carpet we walked one way and blue the other way. It helped us navigate.

Use the Italian restaurant to sit for breakfast and lunch. It's easier to find a seat.

The Garden Cafe on deck 12 (buffet) is fantastic

Go to Tsar's for dinner, it quiet intimate restaurant where all your request will be met. Friendly Staff just an awesome dining experience. Great way to recap the day with family and friends.

Huge variety of places to eat that are included in your fare, complimentary, plus a huge variety of "pay out of pocket" places to eat. Simply understand that there is so much to do and see that you will not be able to do it all.

The Tsars dining room at the back was less crowded

Get up early to beat the crowd for breakfast

Make early reservations for the specialty dining and go to the far back of the ship on deck 12 for the shortest buffet and bar lines

Late breakfast- less crowd!

Specialty restaurants are terrific-really worth the extra money. We love The Bistro and Moderno.

use the pool on day's when there are excursions

When it looks like tables in the Garden Cafe are full and you see a table for four with only 2 people ask if you could join them , chances are they will share.

I was particularly fond of the soft serve ice cream machines and I was probably their best customer. Delicious!
