Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: November 05, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple

Review SummaryThis is a great cruise for families with kids, but I do not recommend it for singles or younger couples. Kids EVERYWHERE.
For a ship of this size, I would've expected a larger pool area and more than 4 hot tubs. There was a sign next to the small pool that said "adults only", but it was never enforced. Music blared through the PA system or by a DJ near the pool. If you wanted quiet, you had to go up 2 floors to the "quiet deck." I would have preferred a separate quiet pool area just for adults. There was also no indoor pool area, so there wasn't much to do on cooler days.
Unfortunately, we couldn't go to Great Stirrup Cay because of high surf, so we had an extra at sea day. The staff did what they could to entertain during the at sea days, but it was still boring. Florida and Nassau were fun though.
That being said, the food and shows were great, as were the staff.

Don't Miss: Visit Dolphin Cay at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island! So amazing!
Pros: food, entertainment, customer service
Cons: too many kids, not much to do during at-sea days, small and noisy pool area
