7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 31, 2013
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 5 years ago
The food, entertainment and private island was excellent. Because it is free style your tips are included as a service charge and charged daily, I found the service in the dining rooms below par not like your traditional dining. Our balcony was next to a balcony of smokers so we had to keep our balcony door closed most of the time so the smoke smell would not be in our cabin. NCL's policy is to allow smoking on the balcony's of the stateroom and there is NOT a dedicated area of balconies that have smoking (they haven't figured that out yet!). I also was never on a cruise that was so lax where people smoked, in the pool, etc. So if you are a smoker, this cruise is for you.
