5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 23, 2008
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 10 years ago

The ship's public areas are very chopped up. There are a bunch of small lounges and none are very impressive. Because of freestyle dining the 2 main dining rooms were small, dissapointing and the food for dinner was horrible. The only 2 shows worth seeing were the ones with the dance company (they were very talented). The comedy and magic show were ridiculous. We were a large group of 22 and we had a great time together, but the ship had nothing to do with it.

Food and Dining

Free style dining was not for us. We prefer having a dinner reservation every night in a beautiful 2 story main dining room. This did not exist on the Jewel.
