I went on a 7 day sail, out of New York, during the month of November. During departure, it was defintely cold outside, so bring a sweater if you can. Leaving out of new york it's defintely a plus for the NCL Jewel.
Service was OK, employees are definitely not happy to be working there.
The food was sub par compared to other cruise lines, such as Royal Caribbean. Also bringing a suit/dressing up is optional. Typically other cruise lines make you dress up 2 days on a 7 day trip. I would do NCL Jewel again, but not in the cold months.
