7 Night Alaska Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 30, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

The ship was very clean with many interesting things to do and great restaurants. The staff was incredible and very helpful. Our room was very comfortable and the views and fresh air from the balcony was fantastic. We loved the Casino and the various bars and restaurants on board

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was generally very good, but it could have been better. We did have some delightful meals at Cagney's steakhouse, Le Bistro, and Moderno. Our meal at Mama's was not very good and everything was cold.


5 out of 5
We really enjoyed the entertainment while aboard the Norwegian Jewel. The Le Cirque Bijou show was very entertaining as was the show by the magician/comedian.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff on board the ship was really very very good. Our steward, Rickardo (room 11032) was excellent and always kept the room clean. We loved Satanto at the Star Bar and Rey and the other bar staff at Shaker's. They really kept us entertained. Oleg at Cagney's was very good to us as was Joesephine at Le Bistro.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship layout was excellent and kept very clean. Our room was very comfortable and the balcony really made our trip. Even the bathrooms were fantastic.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our stateroom was a home away from home and was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was much better than I would have thought, and we loved the layout of the room, the laundry service, our steward, and the spacious balcony.

Pros: The sights were very beautiful and the staff was fantastic. The excursions were terrific and the sightseeing was incredible.

Cons: The sale of gemstones in the duty-free shop. The stones were much more expensive than they should have been and one of the staff even told me the Alexandrite was from Russia and natural when natural Alexandrite was mined out in Russia many years ago. The price for ammolite was also out of line.

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
