Review summary

My wife and I had a great time on the Norwegian jewel. The staff, food, entertainment and the western Carribbean cruise were all that we had hoped it would be and more. Could not ask for a better ships staff and we expected the food to be just average but were really surprised with the quaility of the food and the numerous choices not counting the upgrade cost resturants. we didnt have one bad meal on board and most were really above the cut. The boat never really felt crowed and the cruise was maxed out on guests. We also enjoyed all the ports and what they had to offer. All in all we would recommend both the Jewel and the ports to all of our friends.
