This was our first cruise and will serve as a benchmark for any others that we may take in the future. I wasn't as impressed as I expected to be. The ship was very similar to a floating Poconos resort.

Destinations were a yawn. Got ripped off in a MAJOR way in Cozumel by Executive Jeep Rentals (don't EVER use these guys in Cozumel - stay way clear of these bandidos!!!). We did not book these guys thru NCL. So it was our mistake.

I will say that we relaxed more than we thought we needed. That was probably the best part of the trip, besides the road trip we did to Key West after the cruise. That was DEFINITLEY better than the cruise itself.

Pros: Accomodations were excellent

Cons: Food quality was disappointing

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? No.
