Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review to Caribbean - Southern
Sail Date: January 09, 2009
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I have been on about 8 cruises on different cruise lines before this cruise.
The "ship" is the sum of all aspects. The physical ship was great, however I was a little disappointed in the general management of the ship. For example, disembarking at the ports and taking tours always involved a mob scene and standing in line for a long time. Most restaurants require a $10.00 per person/per meal cover charge. After paying $3,300.00 for the cruise, I was disappointed they charge $2.50 for a can of soda.
All things considered, in the future, I will go to all inclusive land resorts.

Pros: The ship was clean and well maintained, the room steward was very good
Cons: Food was very average, (I prefer Applebee's), Freestyle cruising means standing in line and many extra charges
