First time on NCL after 10 other cruises

Sail Date: April 12, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Noticed that the ship was very clean overall. The restaurants that were included in the price were not worth going to. We looked at the "lobster and grouper extravaganza entree" and laughed at it (it was so tiny!). The buffet on the 12th Floor was pretty good. You would be better off paying the extra for real grown-up food in the specialty restaurants.

Pros: casual dress, gym always open, freestyle dining, Japanese restaurant onboard

Cons: noisy at rear 10th and 11th flrs, smoking in cabins allowed, must pay for good food

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!

Cozumel, Mexico
I signed up for the semi-submarine tour to see the plane that was for viewing underwater only to find out that NCL brochure was 4 years outdated and the plane wreck is no longer there thanks to Hurricane Wilma. That was why I had signed up!
George Town, Grand Cayman
Small bus tour of the turtle farm, the rum cake "factory", and "Hell". It was very hot and humid. The sea turtles were the highlight for me. Could have done without the rum cake stop. The terrain in Hell, G.C. was weird though....
