Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)

All of the wonderful people serving us on the ship were friendly and happy. I appreciated the special attention to clean hands when entering an eating area. I enjoyed talking with servers and other crew about their lives and home towns. I feel that this enriched our trip.

Great variety in activities. Obviously heavy on the evening party crowd. Le Cirque Bijou was excellent!!!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Other than the two experiences I had with the staff of the Java Cafe\, the staff was delightful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The pools were clean and warm enough to use no matter what the weather was like.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The inside cabins are sound proof! I would definitely book a balcony next time as I missed relaxing while seeing/hearing the water.

Pros: I loved how helpful everyone made eating with dietary restrictions. There was so much care given and I never felt bad about asking.

Cons: Not having a balcony was a bummer when there was so much scenery to see.

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
