Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

We had swereage problems in our room for two days- absolutely disgusting! The front desk handling of my complaints was marginal. We had another significaqnt problem that I won't discuss here. Some areas of the staff were deficient. They seemed to be either new or not up to par on their capabilities.

Pros: The entertainment was excellent

Cons: See below

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? No.

Service and Staff
Some of the staff seemed new or not proficient in their duties
The shows were the best weve seen on any of the 10 cruisees we have taken
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
The staerooms seemed smaller than other cruise liens we have been on
St. John's, Antigua
It was raining so that dampened our outside experience here
Cayo Levantado (Samana), Dominican Republic
Great ATV adventure We went to many parts of the island and saw some great vistas
Castries, St. Lucia
Dont miss the ZIP line experience Not as harrowing as we thought it would be. Doing this below the canopy of a rain forest tru;y adds to the "zip" experience
Bridgetown, Barbados
A pretty island I would not recommend the "green monkey encounter.' Unless you have never been to a zoo before the very uncomfortable "4 x 4" ride of about 40 minutes is NOT worth this shore excursion. Monkeys are monkeys - no?
Road Town, Tortola, B.V.I.
We went to one of the most beautful beaches weve ever seen It took about a 35 minute boat ride to get to this outer island though
