Thought they would have a big atrium like most ships when I 1 st walked on! Was expecting more!

Pros: Great Entertainment

Cons: Free Style Dining

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship layout was fine always walk it the 1 st day I wake up to see everything and not many people around early in the morning.
Cabin / Stateroom
Had interior a little smaller than on Carnival! Cleaning person was slow! Not like other cruises I have been on before! Even tipped $40 bucks at beginning to keep ice in room and to take care of us! Only got 2 Towel animals for the week!
Service and Staff
Thinking that since there not working for tips, included in service charge, They do not go out of there way!
Food and Dining
Ate only at the main dining room and buffet. Food at Main Dining room was excellent and food at buffet was the normal buffet fair! Freestyle dining was good and bad! Dining anytime was good but you loose the personal service from having the same staff everynight who no your name!
Entertainment was excellent! Crazeehorse was excellent! Something I have never seen! A bright spot on the cruise! Saw every show!
Port Canaveral, Florida
Didn't do much stayed on ship mostly! Took taxi into town! Saw Kennedy already and been to Disney many times! Would have like Miami or Key West better!
Nassau, Bahamas
Been there before and has beautiful beaches, Went into town then we took Taxi to Cabbage Beach near Atlantis.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Being worked on! Need to take boat to Island, takes along time to get off! Didn't get to Island till 1, Not enough chairs! Nice beach should be bigger! Buffet Lunch a little busy! Disneys private Island much better organized with having a port, the way food was served.
