Review SummaryExceded our expectations. Beautiful ship, friendliest efficient crew ever experienced and the very bestentertainment atShow Time at night. Great food too - especially in both of the complimentary Dining Rooms. The Garden Cafe buffet was quite crowded at times, but we always found a seat. We did not experience any of the several resturants that require a fee.
The large heated salt water swimming pools were enjoyed every day. Our mini suite stateroom was very comfortable with adequate space - it would be a tight squeeze to accommodate 4 persons, as advertised.Our cabin steward was amazing - anticipated every need, fresh sheets every day, and was kept absolutely spotless.
On the down side (minor complaints): -The bathroom -there were no little lotions and soaps - just dispensers. However the bathroom was large with separated toilet/vanity and shower-tub areas. The towels and gowns luxurious and plentiful. The breads were disappointing - rather tasteless, and no multi grain to be had. Also, there were no self serve Laundromats on board - not a problem on short cruises, but on our 22 day cruise we would have appreciated one, rather than have to send it out for $24 (full bag).
I highly recommend the Norwegian Jewel. Happy Cruiser 700. May 22nd 2012.
