We enjoyed this cruise to the Western Caribbean as we had not been to these places today. The ports of call were good and varried. We enjoyed some of the excursions via NCL and then found a few others of our own.  The food was good, and then repetitive. I would like to see more changes in the menu in the dining rooms from night to night. We have cruised with NCL before and enjoyed the food much better with variety than we did this trip. The ship is about to go to dry dock we understand for upgrades. Also, the sports deck was great but limited for the use which my guys were not happy about. The entertainment each night was good as it was varried, but since NCL advertises other entertainment, I was a little disapppinted in what the Jewel had to offer. We did like the magician and the comedian, especially the upclose and personal things they did on the last day at sea. This was good for the youth on board. 


Our cabin was wonderful, the steward was fantastic and we really were happy with him.  


Would recommend this cruise to families of all ages.

Ship Tip

Could have had more for older teens as they seemed to be a little left out at times and the 3 on 3 basketball never happened which is what they loved. They did love watching the staff play soccer at night.
