not my cup of tea

Sail Date: October 08, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The menus in the main dining rooms were limited and the food was not good.

There were too many paid restaurants and that's unusual and annoying of all the cruises I have gone on

The gym was small and half the treadmills and recumbent bikes were out of order

The tours were awfiul and one was canceled.

Pros: service people were nice

Cons: food in main dining rooms and tacky decoration of ship

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? No.

Ship Quality
The ship was clean but very tacky. plastic flowers galore, painted clouds on the ceiling,
bright turquoise doors to the staterooms that clashed with the garish carpeting.
More like a disney cruise than for adults.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
there were lines and you were given beepers. I thought freestyle was supposed to make it easier. Way too many "pay extra" restaurants. Should concentrate more on the quality and variation of food in the main dining areas. First time ever that I've had better food at the cafe than in the dining room

Cabin / Stateroom
Sydney, Nova Scotia
I did my own tour. The walking tour traveled 1 block in over 20 minutes and I wasn't physically able to move that slowly
Don't Miss: nothing. Just a quaint little town.
Saint John, New Brunswick
Halifax, Nova Scotia
my tour here was cancelled, so again I walked by myself around the town. Nice town. Unfortunaley the foliage hadn't turned yet.
Don't Miss: Nothing special
