Fabulous Trip

Sail Date: November 12, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Staff and crew were all overly friendly and helpful, they also actually talked to you, rather than just serve you. We had several great conversations with the crew of the ship. They also always remembered us, even when there were thousands of people on the ship. It was nice.

Pros: Freestyle Dining

Cons: nothing stands out as truly negative

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Size and decor was similar to the rest of the ship and very colorful. We had a balcony room and we will never again cruise with anything less. The views alone from the balcony when coming into ports was worth the added $$.
Service and Staff
Awesome, all I can say!
The shows on the cruise were great. From comedians to magicians to a Cirque de Solei style show were all enjoyable. The theater was great too.
Ship Quality
The decor of this ship was great. Just the colors and modern style of the furnishings was great.
Food and Dining
Quality of food was good, the ambiance of the specialty restaurants was top notch. What was best though was the ability to make reservations for any time and dine with whomever we wanted.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Weather wasn't the best but, snorkeling was great and the island had alot to offer as far as activities.
St. John's, Antigua
We thought this was a waste of time, and were off the ship for only an hour. The smell was horrible getting off the boat. However we have heard that if you book an excursion the rest of the island is nice.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Best jewely shopping anywhere! We frequent this island and have enjoyed Meghan's Bay, Sapphire Beach and Coki Beach. The shopping in Havensight and Charlotte Amalie are not to be missed.We did the snuba excursion in Coki Beach and had a blast. Excellent idea for anyone who wants to scuba but isn't certified.
Don't Miss: Shopping downtown and Snuba @ Coki Beach
San Juan, Puerto Rico
We did the ATV rainforest excursion and had a blast! One of our favorite ports. We had been to San Juan previously and done the historic parts, so it was fun to try an exciting excursion.
Don't Miss: ATV in the Rainforest!
