A dull jewel, except for the Filipinos!

Sail Date: June 18, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

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

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.

Awesome Filipinos!!!
Port Canaveral, Florida
Cocoa beach was nice and quiet
Don't Miss: Slurpees at 7-11, Umbrella rental at Ron Jon!
Nassau, Bahamas
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
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Boring for adults. Nice food, but only water for free!!!
