Did not meet expectations
Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: August 20, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Review SummaryThe cruise was disappointing because we could not go to Nassau due to the hurricane. It would have been nice to have an alternate port, say Bermuda, rather than be on the sea for 3-1/2 days :( We could have done without the stop at Port Canaveral. I felt bad for the folks who spent big bucks on trips to the Orlando theme parks for just a 1/2 day visit.
The quality of the food in the regular restaurants was just ok. The really high quality food in the specialty restaurants was an added expense.
The pool area was way too crowded; as was Great Stirrup Cay.
There were very few places to find peace and quiet.
I would not choose NCL for my next cruise.
