7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 04, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

All together the NCL Jewel was a great experience for my family and I. Only con as I mentioned was tje 143sq ft stateroom for 4 people, again, I know I didn't pay for a villa, but the living space is simply too small EVEN though I know these are really just for sleeping quaters purposes.

The daily itinerary detailing the day's activity is a nice helpful guide as to what you want to do.

The Nickeledeon crew kept the kiddies happy!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Excellent service, everyone from the maid, to the dining staff, to the show performers, to the ship captain were approachable and friendly. If you take this cruise you will be saying washy washy forever, you'll know what I mean.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was spotless at all times, the crew was constantly cleaning, everything looked new as if it was a brand new ship instead of a 6 year old ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

Don't Miss: The beach

I did Cocoa Beach which was ok, but not the cruise fault, had I done Disney (which I done before) my rating will have been excelletn.
Don't Miss: Disney/ Sea World.

Wanted to do Atlantis but rides were really not for kids, settled for Blue Lagoon, wonderful experience, water sports, nice clean beach, friendly people. The food at Nlue lagoon though was very limited in variety and didnt taste as well as the previous places
Don't Miss: Atlantis

Pros: Shows, food variety, Staff, ambiance

Cons: Small stateroom

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? No.
