7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 20, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The carpet in our room was filthy with wear and stains. Should have been either steam cleaned or changed. The ship was a nice ship.

Food and Dining

NCL should charge more instead of spending extra for the better food like Cagney's steakhouse or Tempenyaki

Entertainment was good. But we were board after 3 days on the ocean. The pool was always crowded and the ship suddenly got SMALL.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Mostly everyone was great except for when we went to stirrup cay. We waited to get the first teather boat ticket and waited a long time to get off the ship onto the teather boat. We commented regarding the poor organization of this and a crew member stated " maybe you can come up with a better way to get 3,000 people off the ship".

A waste of time.

Pros: the room (other than the carpet) and the ship was nice

Cons: We spent 3 days straight on the ocean, they should have sent us to Bermuda or Canada instead of Stirrup Cay

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
