Room Type: Oceanview

The Norweigan Jewel left out of the Bayport Terminal near Houston.  The facilities there were good.  The ship was very nice, and the crew was exceptionally friendly.  I personally enjoy a smaller ship with fewer people, but the Jewel took care of the crowds well. The evening entertainment was good, but not as good as some I have experienced.  Overall the ship was lots of fun and the food good. Cozumel was a good port of call.  I did not get off the ship at Belize, as I had seen Mayan ruins and did not want to snorkle. Hondurus was okay, but nothing great.  Maybe it will improve with time. Overall I enjoyed my week on the Jewel.

Destinations and Excursions
Cozumel was the only port that I really enjoyed.
Cabin / Stateroom
It was small but comfortable. The location was great. The room was not noisy as one guest from another deck complained.
Houston, Texas
NASA is nice.
Cozumel, Mexico
We visited Mr. Sancho's Beach Resort.
Belize City, Belize Did not get off ship at Belize.
Trujillo, Honduras
We took a cab to see the city square. The driver did not speak English, so we were disappointed that he could not point out things.


The room service is included in the ship fare. We enjoyed coffee sent to the room each morning. They also had large screen viewing of NFL football game playoffs.
