Scenic Cruise

Sail Date: August 25, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

First, boarding the ship was a succession of standing in long lines waiting to check baggage, then being processed through security. ( I understand the need for security but there is a more organized way to accomplish it. The cabin and ship was clean at all times. The staff was helpful and courteous, cheery and friendly. Food replenishers in the cafeteria were rude and disrespectful.

Pros: the scenery

Cons: the noise on board ship

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Food quality was not what I have come to expect on a cruise. Ambiance was totally missing. There wasn't a quiet place to dine on the entire ship. Some of the noise has to be attributed to the behavior of passengers but the ship could promote one area for quiet dining.
