Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Jewel is a beautiful ship that is well-maintained and well-staffed.

Pros: happy hour 1/2 price cocktails\, dining room menus\, nighttime entertainment

Cons: the odor that permeated the ship\, soiled cabin carpets

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!

Ship Quality
There was an odor that I can liken to the smell of a nursing home\, especially in the cabin's bathroom.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
We were in an aft cabin where I felt too much of the ship's movement.
Service and Staff
On the last day (Saturday)\, the crew put on its talent show. I would move that to the beginning of the cruise so the guests can really get to know the personal side of the staff members. This would help the passengers see the staff more as individuals instead of just waiters\, cleaners\, etc.
