7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 14, 2006
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The Jewel was very disappointing. This was our second cruise this year and The Spirit was much nicer. In the center of the Spirit, with the grand stairway and atrium, glass elevators, places to dance, resturants not as bunched together, and the staff was better organized and nicer. We were late leaving on all of our shore excursions. Once ashore the guides were good but we missed a tour because we were late getting back to the ship by hours - not minutes. Numerous times, we were without water or it was black in our stateroom. The coffee machines did not always work. The food never changed in the buffet area. The food was always fried and not any variety like broiled meat. More soups would have been nice.

We saw plenty of Florence but did not have enough time to enjoy Pisa.

A day on our own, the tour guide was excellent at getting us started and with answering questions.

No where in our intinerery did it say this port. We thought we were landing in Nice. Very disappointing.

Pros: Places that we visited.

Cons: The ship lacked the granduer of the Spirit. Everything seemed more bunched togehter.
