7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 25, 2014
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

This cruise was my first one out of the port of Houston, loved every minute of it and missing it as I work this week.  The food choices were wonderful and plentiful, the ship is beautiful, entertainment was nice.  , Cozumel was beautiful as always, didn't care for Belize City, it was ugly and dirty and should be taken off the cruise line up.  Trujillo Honduras is a new stop, so there was no docking and no tender boats, they used the life boats as tenders, which was fine. This port is new and way underdeveloped compared to other cruise stops.  For the price I paid, and the fun I had on the ship, in the end, the ports didn't matter anyway.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I loved the cabin, it was dark during the day so we could stay up late at night and sleep without the light of day bothering us. Perfect size for two adults and maybe one child.

Ship Tip

When they advertise FREESTYLE, they aren't lying, everything on the ship is open to your schedule so no pressure to eat when you are told, no pressure to dress up to go to dinner in the dining rooms and all do not disturb signs are taken very seriously. IT ROCKS.

Needs more time to develop for cruise stops, but, it is a really pretty place.
