Great locations, had fun in the ports, room was clean and staff was very friendly. Food was ok, drinks were decent. Overall, i had a fun time but a 5 days cruise would have been good enough for me.

Worst vacation ever

Overall this trip was a HUGE disappointment. Norwegian sucked and we will NEVER cruise with them again. And Cheap Cruises was also incredibly disappointing. We called many times after our initial booking - they were horrible about getting back to us. Won't be using them ever again either.

Fantastic Alaska Cruise on the Norwegian Jewel!

The only reason we took points off is because many things felt very nickel-and-dimey. Lots and lots of fees. We're not sure we would book Norwegian again. I am also upset that I did not realize that I could have gotten a discount as a Caesars Platinum member....

The best thing I can say about the cruise is that once we left the ship we talked for 3 days about wishing we were back on the ship and doing the cruise again!

Wonderful itinerary, awful ship

Ports of call were great, and highly recommended. But you should absolutely go see them on a different ship from a different cruise line. The NCL Jewel features below average entertainment, terrible staff, even worse food, on a beat-up, dirty ship.

If no tables at the garden cafe, walk to the Aft of deck 12 and take your food into Cucina. Was empty for the most part!

Book your shore excursions off the ship- far cheaper
