Norwegian Jewel

August 2014 - Norwegian Jewel to Alaska - Inside Passage

ALASKA 2014

I believe this cruise would have been much more enjoyable if the weather would've cooperated.

We were unlucky to experience rainy, cloudy & foggy days while touring our first time in Alaska.  The cruise itself was pretty good and we had a great time, which we always make fun out of every one we take.  Our highlight was in Juneau where we did get to see whales, however, no breaching and beautiful Mendenhall Glacier.  Again, if the weather had been better we could have seen more of Alaska's beauty.  The tours we took in Ketchikan and Skagway were so, so since, again, the weather was bad and unable to see more critters other than a few eagles off into the distance.

Celebrity Silhouette

May 2014 - Celebrity Silhouette to Europe - Mediterranean

45TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

Beautiful ports and overall had a great time.  Was dissapointed, though, because we were to believe that Celebrity was a cut above an average cruise but found it no better than Royal or Princess.  In completing online docs we mentioned we were celebrating our 45th anniversary.  We dined every night in the dining room with great food  and I reminded them it was our anniversary. Then had to remind them again on the last night.  They brought us a small cake with no "Happy Anniverary", then took it away and cut pieces for each and served them.  With other cruiselines they left the whole cake to share with others and had "Happy Anniversary."

Not enough port time in Malta and the port in Venice left it hard to get into town and especially when we disembarked with our luggage.  However, the views coming into Venice were beautiful!  The veranda balcony room was really nice, largest bathroom we've had so far and our guy, Victor was wonderful.  The martini bar was a hit.  But they need to fully explain the rules of the Classic Beverage Package.  We were under the impression that if we exceeded our $8 limited drinks we would just pay the difference.  No, ordered a $9 drink and had to pay for the whole thing!  Kuri & Taruq, our waiters in the dining room were wonderful and Kuri gave us tips for our next day in port.  Was unhappy that Celebrity offered excursions on the ship that were not listed online when we booked.  As it was we booked most of ours through other agencies.  Would've love to have taken the boat cruise along the Amalfi coast and was unhappy with the outside one we did book with in Naples.  We did have a wonderful time and made some great friends and will cruise Celebrity again if they offer the right ittinerary and/or price.

Navigator of the Seas

March 2013 - Navigator of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

ROYAL CARIBBEAN 7-DAY WESTERN CRUISE

This was our second Royal Caribbean cruise and I must say it was just as wonderful as the first. The service is impeccable! There was always something fun to do and the food was great. However, they did need some improvement on their desserts and the photography wasn't up to par. We were amazed at how well organized and quick the boarding and deboarding was. We have cruised with many other cruiselines but so far we think Royal is the best!

fun4us's Tips

Norwegian Jewel Norwegian Jewel - If you're an avid cruiser, don't expect the Norweigan Jewell to match their amenities. Nice to not have to dress up this time, but this ship was just average. However, when we took the NCL Pride of America in Hawai a few years back, it was great.
Santorini, Greece - The best port of all. This island is everything I thought it would be! Beautiful and lucky that we had beautiful weather.
Venice, Italy - Beautiful city and was happy with the hotel we continued our stay. Wished we could've stayed longer. Was not happy with the disembarkment of the ship. Hard to get into town with a long walk, then catching a water taxi that was affordable. Luckily, we paid a guy to carry our luggage over the bridge and to our hotel!
Valletta, Malta - Not enough time in port since we got there at 2 PM and the On/Off bus stopped running at 4:30 PM. But coming into port the views were beautiful!
Naples, Italy - Took the wrong excursion. Too much time in Pompeii. Would've loved to see more of the Amalfi coast.
Celebrity Silhouette Celebrity Silhouette - The martini bar was a hit, however, only one night got a chance to sit at the bar, Very crowded.
Cozumel, Mexico - The snorkeling wasn't the best on the excursion we took.
Navigator of the Seas Navigator of the Seas - Take the late dinner setting. Then you're not rushed after being in port. Most of the entertainment has two shows to accomidate both seatings.
