7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 25, 2007
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 11 years ago

Norwegian Jewel is a lovely ship, mostly because of the great staff. Everyone was very nice. The ship is clean and well equiped with all the amenities one could wish. The nightly shows were very entertaining, and all but one appropriate for children. The dining options were nice, although the food was not outstanding.

Food and Dining

The French restaurant, Le Bistro, was very good. Avoid the Mongolian Hot Pot. There you cook your food in chicken broth and has not much flavor. Chin Chin, the Asian fusion restauant was also very good.

We upgraded and the suite was absolutely wonderful, in terms of size and comfort. The bathtub and seperate shower had windows, so you could enjoy the beautiful scenery. The upgrade had added benefits of VIP extras.

Since we had spent a week there last year, we just wandered around Old San Juan.

We did a power boat snorkeling tour. The tour was nice, the snorkeling pretty good. We also found a taxi driver on our own who gave us a driving tour of the island for a reasonable price ($15/person). We met a few people who did the zip line tour and enjoyed it very much.

Rent snorkeling equipment and spend the day relaxing on the beach.

We took a taxi on our own to the Coral World. That way we could see it at our own pace. There is a beach right next to it, and you can rent snorkel equipment. The snorkeling was excellent right from the beach. The water was calm and crystal clear. This was the highlight of our trip.

Pros: the ports of call are great, the staff on the ship are consistently nice

Cons: food was only so-so

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
