7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 29, 2010
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Ship very clean, staff all very friendly.
Next time we cruise (there will be a next time!) we will not book thru BJ's again- never received things we were promised (onboard spending never on our account, only got gift cards for half what we were told- and not until MONTHS later, etc). Had an amazing time on the cruise but an awful time dealing with BJ's afterward.

Great day at Atlantis- booked the day thru the hotel which was cheaper than the excursion (plus it was sold out weeks before the cruise). Easy cab ride there and had a blast at that huge resort and water park
Don't Miss: Atlantis

too crowded. spent only about 30 minutes on the island and then headed back- which was great because we were only one of two families at the pool on the ship. Considering they own the island you would think they would have amenities (chairs, space, etc) to accommodate the people on the ship

beautiful beach day on Cocoa Beach. fun shopping at Ron Jon's
Don't Miss: cocoa beach

Pros: flexibility of time with family and time as a couple

Cons: nothing

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
