7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip) Sail Date: August 20, 2011 Ship: Norwegian Jewel Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Family (older children) Reviewed: 6 years ago
The staterooms were roomy and clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Most of the food had a weird taste. Their were not enough activities to keep everyone busy. The complimentary rum and punch for missing a port had little to no rum in it.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
Food had a funny taste. Cheese for nachos was watery and cold. Tables were cleared off but not wiped. Steak in restaurant was chewy but steak cooked on grill poolside was excellent. Seemed to be the same food or leftovers recycled.

My 18 year old was bored. If it wasn't for the basketball court, my 13 year old would have been bored. The comedian, Steven Scott was excellent. The rest of the entertainment was disappointing.

We saw an employee cleaning the silver area along the bottom of the stairs and an hour later another employee was given the same job while the hand rails were sticky. Arms on chairs were sticky too.
Cabin / Stateroom
5 out of 5
Clean and roomy. I slept better in the bed on the ship than I ever have in a hotel.
We went to Cocoa Beach by the pier. The pier was a disgrace but we really enjoyed riding the waves. We rented boogie boards. I'm glad that we did not book our transportation through the cruise because it would have cost much more.
