9 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 01, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 7 years ago

This was m first trip with Norwegian.I can honestly say I have sailed wih other companies before, and Norwegian is by far one of the best. I left from NY harbor to go on a 9 day trip to San Juan, St Thomas, St Maarten and Tortola... I am from Long Island so it was a treat to just take the train into Manhattan and be on a boat!!!The Norwegian Jewel is , as the name says, a "jewel" Just refurbished in 2011, th eship is clean, neat and extremely organized. Make sure to take advantage of the shows at the stardust theater at night!! They are top notch!!! I will definitely be back again!! Planning a trip to Bermuda next year!!!! Enjoy everyoone! You will love it!!!

OMG!!! Soo pretty. Hate to say it, but do not waste ur money on the tours with the ship. I got the same tour from the tour guides/taxis on the pier once you dock for a third of the price.. make sure to negotiate with them, do not pay full price!! LOL!!! Visit Magens bay one of the top 10 beaches in th eworls.. but have your driver drop u off at EMRALD BEACH ( where the locals go). Is almost empty and u get a nice umbrella and 2 chairs for FREE!!! Water is spectacular!!!
