Norwegian Jewel

April 2016 - 7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

Good cruise that could have been better

The staff on ship were very friendly, courteous, and helpful.  The itinerary was good with a nice ratio of land and sea days.  The food was good.  The disappointment came with the on ship activities.  The majority of the scheduled activities required additional fees (lots of pricey bingo and "deal or no deal" games) or were looking to get additional fees after booking sessions for acupuncture demonstrations, feet/standing analysis seminars, various spa services to make you look younger seminars, art auctions, art raffles, poker and blackjack tournaments, etc.  There were very few activities that did not require additional fees, so it felt like the cruise line was constantly trying to get in your wallet while on board and it was kind of boring if you weren't shelling out more money on top of what you paid for the cruise and shore excursion, which was very disappointing.

Cruise Tips

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Las Caletas hideaway excursion was enjoyable. Boat ride to it was a little long, but the crew was entertaining and made the trip back not seem so long. Lots of activities on the island and a huge spread of food at lunch. So much to do that it would have been good to have extra time there. Great staff on island and on boat.

Mazatlan, Mexico

Enjoyed Salsa and Salsa excursion. Made about 6 different salsas and made margaritas then learned the Salsa dance. Fun hosts and great service.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Enjoyed Mexican outback and camel ride excursion. Lots of food and tequila tasting. Very friendly staff and our guide was great.

Norwegian Jewel

Norwegian Jewel

Tsar's Restaurant had the quickest service and was never completely full. Was told that it has the same menu as Azure which is the other included in fare price restaurant. Teppanyaki restaurant- cook was friendly and had a good show, but the food was just okay. Not worth $30 plus gratuity p/p.
