My family and I recently sailled in the Jewel out of NY. The people were noy very friendly, in the buffet they wont even offer you water. If you want to eat at a specialty restaurant, prepare to pay per person. Not enough activities on board and the few that they have are not planned that you have enough time to swing from one to the other, late evening there are no activities for children other than paying at the arcade. We were very unhappy to sail on NCL.

The stardust theatre was the only performance that you can really enjoy.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
No activities for children. At the activity center they would not leave the children be, they always want to have them in a circle doing things together and after a certain time you needed to pay to have them lock up in a room.
