Review summary

All the crew aboard the Norwegian Jewel were fun, helpful, and friendly. There was plenty of good food and activities. Although we spent time off the ship at every port which I would highly recommend ( In Belize, an hour boat ride to a little island with great snorkling and lots of sting rays.). Roatan had beautiful reefs off the West Bay Beach. We had a private taxi driver for the day who took us sight seeing first. Then in Costa Maya through Island Marketing we enjoyed an all inclusive beach break at Nohoch Kay. Too shallow for any good snorkeling but the unlimited food and drink for the day was great and the people were nice. All in all it was best. We traveled with two other families and had our meeting place every morning for breakfast. Oh How I miss the omelet man. The variety of buffets every night ( I loved being able to eat lots of salads, fruits, and oh the seafood chowder one night was great) , barbaques on the pool deck  along with an open grill ( I loved the hamburgers with pineapple slice on top), snacks anytime at the Blue Lagoon (good chicken wings). Azura had steak and lobster one night which is a free re


staurant.  I heard the Le Bistro was wonderful just $20 extra. Anyway, great food. We had a great time.

Ship tip

Outside Deck 7 is good short cut from one end of the ship to the other. Its also a peaceful place for reading. Azura's has better food and service than Tsars. Don't miss the nightly shows in the Stardust Theater. If your a drinker? Plan on paying $10 for each small cup.
