Clean and spacious. They kept the public areas a little too warm.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Garden Cafe had the best selection. Azure and Blue Lagoon were a nice change of pace from buffet. Didn't care for the food at Tsars Palace.


5 out of 5
Lots of free shows which was nice. Bingo was fun\, but was a littly costly.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Under 2 zoo was okay. Very small room\, and hard to get to with a stroller from the kiddie pool. Could only stand to be in there for 10-20 minutes before going stir crazy. No windows\, enough toys to keep baby entertained\, but not a lot of space for her to move or roll around. Could use some more padding and maybe some mirrors or music\, or a window for the parents. Better than nothing though. Scheduled under 2 play time in the Congo Room was fun (finger painting\, dancing). Wish there were more scheduled sessions of those.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All the staff was friendly. We asked our steward to remove a couple peices of furniture from our room to give us some extra space\, and he complied without hesitation. Also called us by name when he saw us\, which was nice.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Nice layout\, pretty clean considering all the people on board.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Clean and more spacious than we expected. Our steward kept it tidy for us. Loved the aft location.

Pros: Room and activities\, off shore excursions

Cons: Paying for soda was a drag

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
