A great cruise!

Sail Date: June 30, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship is clean, the staff were all friendly. They really push the hand sanitizer, but in a polite way. The entertainment was fantastic! The major disappointment was the food- it was just ok. We really enjoyed the 4 stops.

Pros: We liked that there were 4 stops on this ship and the entertainment was great!

Cons: Unfortunately the food was not great!

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Nothing special. We had dinner at the Italian place and it was awful- we complained to the management and they did not charge us for everyone (10$ per person to eat there). We also had dinner at Chin Chin- the chinese place and that was great. Overall- the food was a disappointment. Also- there were extra charges for things like cappucino or espresso after dinner.
Cabin / Stateroom
I was disappointed with the room's set up\, primarily because when we booked through I was assured that a cabin for 4 included 2 single beds and 2 fold down beds\, but it turns out on the Jewel there are NO rooms with that set up. The best they can do for a family of 4 is 2 singles\, a trundle bed in between the 2 singles and a fold down\, so you have to crawl out of the end of the bed to get out.
