We went on a cruise to western caribbean (roatan, Belize, Costa Maya and Bahamas). The ports of call were great except for Belize. I do not recommend to take the excursion to the city by train. There's little to see there and it looked a bit dangerous. I recommend a beach excursion (diving, snorkeling etc).
As regards the ship we had a wonderful experience, I must say it was our first cruise ever. We chose NCL because we liked it ti be free style. That's great when you are on vacations... if you wan to dress up with a formal attire you can but if you want to use a pair of shorts and a top it's fine too. You can sit on the dinning rooms with your friends or couple instead of the cruise line assigning you a table. The NCL jewel has 4 main restaurants (one of them buffet) included within the rate and some speciality restaurants (about 6) that are with an additional charge (10 to 25 depending on the restaurant). The food is great, the service and staff is great.... you won't regreat choosing NCL.

PS: we travelled with 1 year old baby and we found adecuate food, high chairs, baby cribs etc. No problems going up or ashore to the ports of call with him as everything was safe and well organized!
