Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Jewel is a newer ship (2005), well decorated and fun. The freestyle cruisng is not for eveyone, but it suited us well. We liked the idea of not having to rush back from an excursion to make it in time for dinner. They do have dressup days if you want to dress formal, but it is optional. Freestyle doesn't afford you that chance of getting to know your tablemates because you show up whenever and dine alone...however, we happened to get to know a few other passengers that happened to be on many of the same excursions with us, so we became acquainted, made dinner reservations a couple of nights together and ended up exchanging email addresses.

Pros: Freestyle Cruising!

Cons: Automated Return Phone System for Dinner Reservation

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
