Need painting and preservation. Food was cold, and their was a poor selection. This was our third cruise on our third cruise line. NCL comes in third!

Pros: Kids club

Cons: Food

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? No.

Food and Dining
Food was cold, and there was no comparison to Royal Caribbean in the buffet and in the formal dining area. We did not pay to eat ant the MANY pay for dining areas so we cannot comment on these. Why should you have to pay extra to get good food!
Ship Quality
Restroom at pool area was out of order the whole cruise. We had to go at least 200 feet to go to the restroom.
Cabin / Stateroom
My child loved the drop down bunk bed!
Service and Staff
Life guard was useless (only one at the pool area).
It took 15 minutes to get one of the hot tubs closed (after telling 4 staff members) that a child threw up in the water.
The one show we went to was fantastic!
Planed events were always started early, and when the staff members were asked about this they denied the started early.
Children's Programs
Kept our child happy!!!
Nassau, Bahamas
Sea horse sail and snorkel where not fendly! No actual sailing time (what we wanted).
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Disorganized in getting people to shore (anchored out), and serving lunch.
Port Canaveral, Florida

Don't Miss: Space center
