Our second Alaska cruise

Sail Date: August 11, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is quite attractive without being gaudy. The staff is uniformly excellent. The security staff is unobtrusive but thorough.

Pros: food and food service\, behind-the-scenes tour\, ship decor

Cons: Volume at music venues (MUCH too loud)\, smoke on our balcony

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!

Ship Quality
While we prefer a much smaller ship\, this is the best large ship we've been on. The layout is convenient\, elevators are sufficiently large. The chairs in the library are uncomfortable\, though.
Food and Dining
The staff and chefs in the Tsar's dining room provided excellent gluten-free food for my wife. Tsar's is very pleasant to dine in\, with very attractive decor and paintings.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Music is much too loud. We avoided most of the music presentations because they hurt our ears.
