Room Type: Inside

No atrium when we boarded the ship! No sports bar to watch games or Nascar, surprising since other ships I have been on had sports bars! Service was lacking in dining rooms and steward who cleaned room. Last cruise on Carnival service was awesome! I think because they are not working for tips is the reason! Buffet was not open all the time and seemed like when i did go they were closing it! No midnight buffet. Free style cruising was good but you loose that personal touch of not having the same wait staff every night! Since I live on Long Island it was nice not to take a plane and pay for one, just a short drive to the City!

Pros: Crazeehorse! And leaving from NY!

Cons: Service!

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? No.

Ship Quality
Ship was nice size plenty of room not to crowded, very clean, nice theater!
Cabin / Stateroom
Little small but wasn't there much!
Service and Staff
Waiting staff poor! Room steward poor! As compared to other cruises! Cat was awesome!
Food and Dining
Food was excellent at main dining rooms! Buffet was nice!
Best shows! We were lucky to have the chance to see Crazeehorse and Le cirque Bijou was awesome! Bingo a little pricey at $39 for 4 games.
