Review Summary

Tipping being billed as "a service charge" before you've had service is wrong! Make 'em remove it, and tip those who DESERVE IT!

Nassau, Bahamas

1 out of 5
Expensive excursions, and shopping a RIP-OFF TOURIST TRAP, ESPECIALLU THE "PREFERRED" JEWELRY SHOPS, where nothing is marked and they asked "what did you wany to spend" BEWARE

Pros: Warm/helpful staff. tasty buffet/desserts

Cons: SLOW dining service, BORING ship, SCAM service fees! YUCKY main courses. smell of cigarette smoke all over ship

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? No.
