the ship itself was very nice for the most part. there was some things that needed some major ttention like the stage in the theater... there was tape holding pieces on the front where you could tell that there wwas a pice of wood or something missing. or the veneer was coming off... the buttons at some of the elevators were not working prooerly.. the ship is in need of some tlc but overall pretty good

Pros: itinerary. activities

Cons: service

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!

Ship Quality
the ship needs renovation
Service and Staff
Dining staff was very rude. Cabin steward was AMAZING and the activities staff was good for the most part except could get a little pushyand rude at ports while trying to get the passengers on and off the ship.
Food and Dining
food in the main dining rooms were ok at best as well as most of the specialty restaurants. The service was very slow. there were times when they were not very busy but it still took 45 ins for me to get a glass of water.and te wait staff was at times very rude.Teppanyaki was AMAZING all around. from the food to the staff to the whole set up.
Cabin / Stateroom
stateroom was very nice. my cabin steward was AWSOME. anything we needed he would take care of for us even if we didnt ask. he noticed that my ice bucket was empty every time he went in to make up the cabin in the morning and turn down the cabin in the evening ( I love to eat ice) so he made it a point tocome in the middle of the day to refill it. (without me asking and until we had a small outbreak of the noro virus)
there shows were great. there was almost always something to do. there were a few times when all they had going on was trivia which i didnt really have an interest in but they seemed to fill up pretty quick
