10 Night Canada & New England (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 18, 2008
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago

The ship was beautiful, clean with nice art. The weather was cool so when out to sea it seemed crowded with not enough to do or space. The main dining rooms were crowded with long lines even at the buffet. There were about six speciality restarants that cost extra that were not crowded from $10 each for Mexican or Chinese food to $20 each for steak. The cabin was very clean and the room stewart made adorable towel animals daily. The ports were intersting and overal we had a wonderful time.

Service and Staff

The staff was pleasant but tired and over worked due to the extra labor involved due to the antiseptic problem on the prior cruise and having to spray everybody all the time.

The most beautiful city I have ever seen.

Pros: The evening shows were some of the best ship shows for acrobatics & dance
