Overall Rating:

4 out of 5
Sail Date: January 01, 2010
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 8 years ago
The ship is splendid. Extremely clean, quiet for sleeping, crew is an outstanding group of individuals who clearly enjoy making the experience a pleasant one for their guests. No request went unattended. The shows were highly professional.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We enjoyed every meal but did resent the fact we had to pay extra for some dining. Really, and extra charge for Italian food? (My favorite, I refused.)

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
As to size, I would personally prefer a smaller ship but the layout, condition, cleanliness and accessibility were well thought out and maintained scrupulously.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I was surprised by the ample storage and room in an inside stateroom and was really impressed by the generous size of the shower stall. All maintained in pristine condition.

Pros: The dining experience

Cons: One of the side trips

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
