Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was plentiful but average. Waited 1/2 hour to be seated for "speciality" restaurant even though we had reservations and then we were rushed through the meal.

Ship Quality

Garbage strewn about outside pool area, debris floating in pool. Pools themselves much too small (we prayed for rain just to clear out the overcrowding)

Cabin / Stateroom

Wait until reconstruction is completed before using this as a "beautiful" beach excursion. Getting off water taxi and stepping into a war zone wasn't pretty. TOO congested for a "private" beach experience.

Pros: didn't have to make beds or plan meals

Cons: WAY TOO CONGESTED! Practically sitting on someone elses lap around pool, couldn't walk freely around with so many chairs set up, cabin hallways congested with linen carts.

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? No.
