Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!

Ship Quality
Nice layout\, pretty clean considering all the people on board.
Food and Dining
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.
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean and more spacious than we expected. Our steward kept it tidy for us. Loved the aft location.
Service and Staff
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.
Lots of free shows which was nice. Bingo was fun\, but was a littly costly.
Children's Programs
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.
