Norwegian Jewel

September 2016 - Norwegian Jewel to Coastal - West Coast

food not nearly as good as past NCL, but still recommend the cruise overall

We loved the free unlimited beverage package!  We only had to give them our card, nothing to sign when they returned the card with our order.  When I sailed in 2015, they brought a check to sign and passengers were mistakenly adding tips when those are all prepaid with the package.  A great solution in practice now!  Out of curiosity, I would have liked to see the drinks listed on our final cruise bill (with no charge).  Happy

Some of the food was disappointing.  But the crab cakes in Azura, Indian food (Garden Cafe), chocolate croissants (everywhere), bacon, mai tais, red Sangria, tiramisu (Tsar's Palace) and Fish & Chips (O'Sheehan's) were fantastic!  Grandson ordered pizza for every lunch and dinner, so I guess it was great, too.

My husband always rates the hot tubs NOT hot.  Grandkids (9 & 13) really loved the waterslide, even when it was really too cold to be out there.  Several fathers with toddlers were having a lot of fun on it, too.

The drinks were free flowing at the 2 receptions we went to, but the food (invitation was for appetizers) was very hard to get!  Definitely need a full lunch afterwards.

Son's cabin for 4 (5553) had a rollaway rather than 2nd bunk, which was ridiculous (wall to wall beds); we were told NO cabins had 2 bunks.

grewuponships's Tips

Norwegian Jewel Norwegian Jewel - If you are looking for the daily tea & scones, they are all the way aft behind the Garden Cafe. But pass on the "Devonshire Cream" which is actually Dream Whip, if you are old enough to remember what that is...
