January 2016 - 7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Jewel
We appreciated the streamlined embarking procedures and wondered how the disembarking ones could be improved. Far too much time in line trying to get through, including a long hurry-up-and-wait time on the ship's deck before being allowed to proceed down the Z-way.
We had the dining package which worked out nicely since we didn't have to pay any extra charges at the now-ala carte restaurants. However, I can't see how this change is going to net NCL any additional monies. The excellent Italian restaurant was empty.
Really appreciated the no-smoking policy!
