January 2016 - Norwegian Jewel to Mexico
My wife and I thought this was a very enjoyable cruise, well worth the price. The ultimate beverage package saved us some money but be aware that it does not include bottled water or any of the drinks (alcoholic and non alcoholic) from the mini fridge in your stateroom. The service onboard was spotty, some great experiences and some bad experiences. Food quality was good but not great. We did some specialty dining but found the service and food quality not that much better than the main dining and probably not worth the added cost. Others must have felt the same way because the specialty dining was not well attended. There were a lot of things and a wide variety of things to do while onboard the ship. We did not purchase any of the available onboard shore excursions and instead we just went ashore and took advantage of tours available at the dock. We had great experiences, met some great friends, and saved a bunch of money by doing this.
